Nine Patch Quilt

By | August 5, 2019

I started making some 9 patches a la Bonnie Hunter. Scrappy whites/lights, scrappy anything goes colours, darks in the center and outside corners and lights in the other positions. I made a bunch with no real plan in mind. Simple pleasurable, mindless sewing – the best kinkd. 

The a friend showed me a quilt . The idea was using a different colour stripe but I thought, why not blue? And I came up with this:

Simple, bright, easy. 

I started made a whole bunch of these until this ended up being created:

I’m thinking a small white border followed by a wider blue border. 

Construction notes:

9 patches are made from 2.5″ squares.  Blue strip is 2.5″ x 6.5″. (6 can be cut from one WOF strip).

    Good Morning! What a fun quilt. I think you choice of the royal blue, and deciding to use it throughout really gives the quilt top some cohesiveness. Scrappy is wonderful but it’s nice to not be totally random as well. I’ll bet it is fun to look at all of these scraps and remember the first project they were used in. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Isn’t it wonderful how a simple block (9-patch) with just the simple addition of a bar can make such a beautifully scrappy quilt? I love it!

    This is such a great quilt. I love how the blue makes it so electric. Great job. I can’t wait to see it with your borders.
