    Ok, I tried it. It's not bad. Was pretty easy, but I thought I had enough blocks to make this, but had to go thru my entire stash to find coordinating colors. That was the hard part. I don't have many pastels, but I made do.
    It's not sewn, just layed the blocks out

    If you see any blocks that should be moved, let me know.

    Looking good Terri :D

    Hardest part, making sure you don't end up with two fabrics or colours together....I spent ages going over and over, I stuck a piece of flannel on the wall with blue tack so I could position - reposition...stand back....start again, ooopps it fell off, now which way up did it go, like a giant jigsaw puzzle lol!!

    I can't tack anything to my walls, they are cement. :(
    Why wouldn't you cut it first? If ya didn't, then you'd just have the 9 patch block. This way, I have it all cut so I can see where everything would go.


    ***edit***
    Sewing it together now. Top should be done soon, I hope!

    Terri we have cement walls to in Spain....I just used sticky stuff, white gunk that sticks to the surface, a big glob of it then stuck pins thru the flannel into the gunk!!

    Looking forward to seeing it finished off!!

    Edit... forgot to mention I hung the flannel over a picture first so that takes most of the weight!! :oops:

    I see! Well, I don't have any wall space in my room. My book case takes the only wall that it would fit on. I don't have ANY pictures up on the walls :(
    I have pain in the arse landlords who said that in order for me to put pictures on the walls, I have to hire this lady who will do it for me. NOT!! So, instead of arguing with the landlords, we just don't have any up. I do have framed pictures in the house on bookcases and such, so it's not a pictureless house. I just can't have my fine art up :(

    Ok, I have the top done. I do have a couple seams that didn't match up. Don't know why, but they could have been blocks that I really wasn't going to use and got mixed up when a certain little girl kitten wanted to help. It's ok, can't really notice.

    I'll probably tie this one

    actual color of border

    No clue.....I just pay my rent and let them be.
    Had I known they were as anal as they are, I wouldn't have rented from them. Word to the wise....DO NOT RENT OVER THE INTERNET WHETHER YOU HAVE A REALTOR OR NOT!!

    Terri-looks like you have been having fun! (Next thing you know we will have a whole thread of everyone's disappearing nine patch-it seems to be really catching on. :) ) It must go together really quickly. Fun quilt!!!

    My old Landlord in our last house was the same way. I had to buy these peel & stick hooks to hang pics. I bought them at Walmart.

    Ok let me get this straight. You make a nine patch... And then cut it in four? That part I get lost on. Maybe I can find a picture step by step tutorial... I sure like yours and if its scrappy.... its right up my alley :D

    It does go together really fast, sort of. Just sewing all those blocks together was getting tedious!
    I think I'm going to try a 2 color one. That way, I can strip it. :)

    I'm not even going to get those, Bev. Don't want to mar their walls that need repainting. Not giving them ANY excuse to not give us back the entire security deposit. AND...the best thing? They HAVE to give it back within 3 days of us moving out. These people are BROKE, BROKE, BROKE! lol And, once I get their check, I'm going STRAIGHT to THEIR bank to cash it. Mean, huh? lol

    Yes, Bev. Make a 9 patch. Square the block, then cut thru the center of it, to make 4 blocks. Then just arrange and sew. Yes, you can make it scrappy!
