Here's the latest back from the quilter.
I put this together last week as a thank-you for my Aunt.
She is catering and planning my graduation party, today.
(it got here just in time)
I was able to work with the fabric I had.... I could have added another row of 9patches, but didn't have any more sashing.
I think I ended up with about 8 inches!!!!
Now... what do do with the 7 9patches that didn't make it into this quilt?

7 nine-patches = seed blocks for your next quilt, of course! <g>

Good job. Has the look of an old traditional quilt!

Join four as you have them rotated in the quilt, but leave out the sashing and see if a secondary star pattern forms. Make a pillow. Or use for a tote bag.

Very nice! The colors looks really good together! You could make potholders with the remaining.
