What I haven't talked about is the smaller box that is full of 2.5" squares that I've also been accumulating for years. Of course most of the squares in that box are blues. I've been wanting to make a blue split 9 patch for a long time but just never got around to it until I saw Keryn's post about her blue split 9 patch. That was all it took for me to start one too! I love her star center!
It is harder to see my star because I'm not piecing a true split 9 patch. I'm making the center a full square which changes the appearance somewhat. It would be nice if my display wall was large enough to add more of the blocks but it isn't. I'll have to wait until I have more blocks pieced then lay all the blocks out on the display floor.
This is supposedly my new leader/ender project but it's threatening to take over the sewing room and become a full time project!
Split 9 patch was Bonnie Hunter's Leader/Ender project in 2013. Here is a link to the instructions.
When we we had the frigid arctic temperatures several weeks ago, we woke up to fog one morning! When the frozen moisture in the air touched the trees, they became frosted.
Those frigid temps are gone now and so is the snow.
