30's Nine Patch 30’s Nine Patch
By: chrisb, Australia

I made this to try out the Quilting design on the border and to use up some inherited pastels and some of my 30’s fabrics. Meant to be nice and quick but the hourglass fabric shrank when I was pressing and I had to go back and recut every 9 patch. Grrrrr

Blooming Nine Patch Blooming Nine Patch
By: Darlene Gerber, Ohio, USA

I say my first Blooming Nine Patch at a local quilt show and decided to make one using directions I found on the internet. Using my 1990’s stash caused me to run out of fabric and I had to redo some of the blocks to complete the quilt. Now I have to figure out what fabric to use for the binding.

Seasons Seasons
By: Rhoda Forbes, British Columbia, Canada

I embroidered the panels over the winter, and had no idea how I would incorporate them into a quilt. Nine patch, being my favorite block, came to mind. I used recycled material, plaids from men’s shirts, and cream 100%cotton to create the nine patches. I was thrilled with the end result.
