I had planned to give into the split 9 patch project and just work on those blocks until I had the 224 blocks I needed but then I changed my mind because of Jayne.
I enjoy making 9 patches of every size. When I finish a quilt and have fabrics left, I often cut the fabric into strips and make 9 patches.
Several years ago I sorted through them and pulled 3" finished patches for a quilt and bought the alternate turquoise fabric to go with it.
Like I said, I had planned to work on the split 9 patch blocks but then Jayne posted about a 9 patch sew along on her blog. I thought about joining in using 2" strips from the box and making 4.5" finished 9 patches. Then I thought about how I already have the 9 patches pieced for 2 or 3 projects. I decided to finish one of those projects.
Here is 9 patches & turquoise squares except in my pictures the turquoise looks blue. He measures 61" by 83".
