Today was a statutory holiday here in B.C. so I spent another 6 hours in my quilt studio--quilting bliss!
Look what I found....................another box of 9-patches.
Remember what I said in my last post about my quilts not being finished until they feel like they are done? Well, finding these extra blocks makes me think that I will have to add some more blocks to the Nine Patch Path quilt. Right now, it is 12 blocks in total and is the size of a large lap quilt--60" x 78". I am planning to utilize these additional nine patches to make the quilt 20 blocks in size--4 blocks by 5 blocks. The extra blocks will make this quilt "bed size". I need 49 nine patch units to make 8 blocks--the exact number of nine patch blocks in the box I just found. This is the Nine Patch Patch as it stands right now - 12 blocks in size. I added a piano key border to the Left Over quilt. I guess it can't be considered finished until the Nine Patch Path is complete. When I make the rail fence pieces to join the nine patches I will end up with more left overs. I am not sure if I will start another Left Over project or if I will add to this one. The Left Over quilt is now 41" square.
I will be going back to work tomorrow and 6 hour sessions in the quilt studio will come to an end--how sad.
