I've been working on piecing the 174 blue 9 patch blocks for what seems like forever! But actually it's only been several weeks whenever I have time.
I have a card table set up with the HST's and squares beside my sewing machine.
I lay out two blocks at a time and run them through the machine.I just keep sewing and piling them up until I have a big pile.
Then I press them, alternating the direction of the seams.
All 174 blocks have been webbed. Next week I'm getting together with a friend for a sew together day. I hope to sew as many blocks as I can into finished blocks. I'll press them when I return home.
Then the fun part happens, arranging the blocks on the display floor! I'll show you a picture when I get to that stage.
The split 9 patch block is a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter's website.
