Small 9-Patch Blocks

In one of the boxes, there are many, many squares just waiting to be stitched.  I started making some little 9-patch blocks that finish at 3″. There’s something about making 9-patch blocks that I find really appealing.

I keep thinking about making a red and white 9-patch lap quilt. That won’t happen until the red and white Feathered Star/Sunflower quilt is done, but it’s definitely a quilt I want to make.

Baxter seems to think these blocks are meant for him, so perhaps I’ll make a few more and he’ll have his first little quilt. I’m thinking of making a grey, white, black and pink quilt for him, but haven’t quite decided on what pattern. In the meantime, perhaps a little 9-patch quilt will suffice until he’s fully grown and I get the other quilt made.

  1. You know, quilts are cat magnets and it seems to be working at your home! Add a little catnip and boy will he be happy! That quilt looks good on him, I mean he looks good on the quilt! 🙂


  2. I love simple nine-patches, too. And lately I’ve found myself drawn to four-patches as well. Thanks for starting my day with beauty — this was the first email I received this morning.


  3. I love the small 3 inch nine patches also. I belong to a Yahoo group that swaps them every month. You should see the big box of them I have!! Love your new Baxter cat. Kathie L in Allentown


  4. Your work is SO gorgeous! How do you find time to do all these quilts? I’m so intriqued with your printouts. What do I need to do to get some and how does it work and most of all, what type of printer would I need. I just drool with every email you send…now I need to get off my doofus and try it myself. Thanks so much for encouraging me. Please let me know how to get started. Sharon
