9 patches are so fast to go together! I started a week late on the one a day 9 patch summer challenge, but I'm already almost caught up.
Eight are complete:
Two are cut out and ready to put together tonight:
Today is June 10th, so since I will have 10 blocks done today, I'm caught up! Doing one square a day from here on out shouldn't be a problem. If I miss a day I can just do 2 the next day.
My 9 patch squares are 6 1/2 inches, since I am using 2 1/2 inch small squares and strips to make them. I realized after I got started that I have this 6 1/2 inch Easy Square. After finishing pressing each square I use the Easy Square to check for accuracy.
I'm also making progress on another quilt. This one uses 5 inch squares arranged in a light/dark sequence. The outer portion of the quilt will have darker squares than the inner part of the quilt. I am stacking up the squares in the order they need to be in for one row and any time I get to the end of a line of stitching, I stick a row of this under the needle and sew another square on to a row. I love to make two quilts at one time and it saves so much thread!
