    newest scrappy lap quilt design

    One of my guild sisters just completed a marvelous scrappy king sized quilt. I liked her idea, but I wanted to make a different shape and have a lap sized quilt. So far, I have 9 of the 9 patches done. My scrap pile is threatening to overpower my tiny sewing area, so I had to do something.

    That is a real neat design for using up scraps. Did you draw it on EQ??

    Cool design! You mentioned you were doing it in 9 patches? I can see sewing it in rows with the vertical design, how will you join it with the 9 patches?

    I designed this on QuiltPro, which I like much better than EQ (I own both, but QP is easier to use.) Vertical or horizontal sewing might be easier, but I am doing 3 columns at a time.

    Great design. I was going to add up how many 9 patches you needed but my eyes crossed!

    Mine did too, I printed it and marked them off. I have just completed the center 5 columns. It takes much longer to press and cut my squares than to sew the segments.

    different set, would love to see t done.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    If you're doing it all in 9 patches.... does that mean your drawing is just representational of the colours rather than the shapes too?
