Sewing nine patch when it rains..

by corry

 
Rain is pouring down. It's cold and wet outside.
And I'm up in my attic, cozy and warm.
Guess what I'm doing.......
I sew!
 


I sew nine patch,
my most used and most favorite pattern.
nothing beats nine patch!
I use flowery Laura Ashley fabric for the centre
It gives the blocks just the kind of folklore touch I love.
Add some bright reds, some gingham and stripes,
and I think it will be a lovely quilt.


Like this one, done in blue


groeten, Corry

  10. Lovely. You've gathered, cut and assembled a lively combination of colors and patterns. You've got a great balance of jump and quiet in these squares.

    The quilt should be fantastic.

  14. Oh so lovely! I love both red and blue, so I would have a hard time picking just one. As the old saying goes, if one is good, two is better! Love the floral centers.

  15. Oh ja, dat wordt echt een hele mooie quilt. En al die mooie kleurtjes zijn zo veel beter dan dat grijze, saaie en natte weer buiten.

Bright and cheerful, inspired fabric projects and beautiful Dutch things to see. I can't wait to see the projects you will make for the holidays. Have a lovely fall! Elizabeth

  20. these are pretty blocks.
    you know i love the fancy quilts that some people make but when it comes to the crunch i love the simple square blocks - there's something about them - perhaps they showcase the fabrics better?

  24. Gaan jullie me vertellen of ik jullie Quilt heb gefotografeerd in Woudrichem? Dat zou toch wel heel toevallig zijn.
