A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks — 9-Patch

  9-Patch Block

I hope you had a wonderful Easter.

It was an odd Easter to be sure.

Our family was able to Zoom for a while thanks to our daughter, Clare.

That at least was fun to share some time together!

Now on to our 9-Patch block.

Had lots more fun going through my scrap basket!

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cut:

  • 5 floral squares 1 1/2″
  • 4 green squares 1 1/2″

 

Arrange.

Chain piece into rows.

I have better luck not pressing these at this point.

I think it makes the seam nest better if not pressed really flat.

Just pin the seams toward the green fabric.

Perfect match in the corners each time.

I pressed the last seam open &

removed the stitches in that seam allowance.

It shows a bit better on these more contrasting fabrics.

Sorry to be so redundant,

but so quick & easy to make 3!
