    The H Quilt

    The original H quilt was done by Doreen Hendirix. I saw it, loved it, and want to do it. She graciously sent me her work up on it and I have thrown a few ugly patches lol up on the board just to see. These are a 9 patch H. I will then throw up an 11 patch H and see if I like that better.

    I think your "H's"look great just as they are. It is so interesting the way they intersect with each other.

    That is such a neat idea, which I may have to give a try, with some of my scrappy blocks, since my last name starts with an H. Thanks for sharing.
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    I couldn't figure out what an H quilt would be. What a great design for a scrappy quilt.

    Oh boy and you have to stay organized don't cha! think I'll give this a try. I've done several puzzle quilts and getting tired of the pattern even tho mine is an easy one.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    All this afternoon I have cut squares and placed them on the design board. The board is full. I have started to sew some sections now to get more space. There are three sections on the right that are sewed together in rows of seven blocks. The blocks are not sewed together yet. They look so different once the are sewed together.

    I don't quite understand. I would use just three pieces of each color to make the appearance of the H. Is there a reason for 9 or 11?

    I prefer the 9 patch H too. I think it will look better with pretty colors. Even though the 11 patch is too long, the colors look better! I'll wait to see your finished 9 patch H quilt!
    Go forth and sew!

    Looks like the beginnings of a cool looking quilt.
