    Twin sister to my 9 patch scrappy posted a while ago

    Just finished last night.

    I still have so many scraps--but as most of you noted, it seems I never work them down to nothing--am always creating more.

    It's a 9 patch scrappy using a 2.5" solid black sashing, hot pink inner border and floral border. I finished one last August and was so surprised by how nice it ended up looking that I wanted to make a "twin" only using black instead of white.

    Here is the one I finished last August and posted previously to QB.

    They are both very pretty quilts. Looks like a great way to use scraps.

    Both are gorgeous! Great job. I may have to steal this idea. So simple, but impressive!

    They are both beautiful. My scrap bins are getting full so I must get started on them soon!
    Retired teacher, loving it.
    Love quilting also.

    Both so pretty. The nine patches could be made while sewing other projects, using the pieces as starters and stoppers.

    You have put together 1050 little tiny blocks. There is no way I could do that! I'd go insane. Having said that you should know that I think both your quilts are beautiful.

    What a wonderful way to use scraps, even the smallest ones! outer borders make the black quilt pop as well as the sashing. Those quilts will surely receive lots of love ! Thanks for sharing.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    "Same Different as Me" is the name of a book. It think it fits your quilts here. I am a twin and I love that they are the same but different.

    Both quilts are lovely. They have very different "personalities" due to the different background fabric.

    There is something rewarding about making 9 patches. They are pretty easy, and the end result is often quite pretty, so I don't mind.

    Thank you. I was wondering the same thing. Guess lots of people are interested in being copycats of such a great quilt.

    I really don't know. I quilted the black one mostly in one afternoon--but spent part of the next day on it as well. Actually doing the piecing of the top? I don't know--I usually don't work like that--all in one solid block on one quilt.
