New project...


I need a new project like I need another hole in the head... But that doesn't keep me from starting something new. Nope. Sometimes ya just gotta do things in spite of yourself. I saw this pattern in the book, "40 Fabulous Quick-Cut Quilts" by Evelyn Sloppy. Yes, I might have used a pen name if I were her, but there's nothing sloppy about her book. Full of great scrappy quilts. This quilt is made from a simple 9-patch(w/2 HST), just twisted and turned about. And it is soooo easy. One of those mindless day projects. OK, I might have a whole lot more days like that than the average bear... quit your pickin' on me. At any rate, I am using my reproduction fabrics and I am loving the bubble gum pink with the red and black.


Different color way. I made this blue and brown one for a curtain/cover to the porch door window in my bedroom.

I have that book and it's wonderful! She really understands how to use scraps effectively. That black and pink one is really cute.

Ooooo...I like. Just what I needed like a hole in the head, more inspiration from Nines! This one is going on my short list.

Wow! See why you're liking the pattern and the combo. Very cool!

The blue/brown square is great, too.

I have some of that fabric from the first block. How cute! Maybe this is what I will make from it. How big is the finished square? I think that I will do a google search for the book.
I like mindless, it seems to fit me! LOL

Beautiful work dear. How do you find the time. I guess if I would get my nose out of a book, I would have more time for such things.

Ooooh...I just knew before reading that the turquoise and chocolate block had to be going in or near your master bedroom! So rich-looking!

And your other block's color combination is super cute!

You just have all of the fun that you can muster, my dear! That's what Autumn is for, isn't it?! Starting lots of goodies to work on in the winter?!

Love you heaps!

My, my!! How cute is this!! Love that black/whie and peachy color combo. I have that book and had better study how it's put together, more carefully. I had not envisioned it a 9-patch!
