What can I say? I love 9 patches! So when I ran across the Wintersweet quilt on Marie's Quilt Bee blog, I had to have that pattern!
Winter sweet is made with 2 blocks and I made the red 9 patches first.
Then I sewed green strip sets and made 4 patches . . . .
And green 9 patches. The green cutting mat seems to be affecting the coloring.
I arranged part of the blocks on the display wall. These are the true colors.
The 9 patch blocks finish at 6" and they look very nice. After I had placed these blocks on the design wall, I had to wonder how this quilt would look with 3" finished blocks? Then I thought how long would it take me? I'm not going down that rabbit hole right now, maybe someday but not now!
Wintersweet is the 2nd Christmas quilt I've pieced this month. I've using fabrics left from Peppermint Pines and from my stash. The background fabric is an assortment of white fabrics.
The free pattern is available from Cake Stand Quilts. Scroll down to the bottom of that post to print the pattern.

I love this quilt. I went straight to the page and downloaded the pattern. Hopefully I can find time to make it. I love the fabrics you are using.
I love nine patches, too, and love the simplicity of this design. It looks beautiful with your Christmas fabrics.
It will be a lovely quilt! I’m off yo check out Cake Stand Quilts!
What a great design! I like it in holiday prints but now I'm imagining it in other colorways and genres.
What a pretty little Christmas quilt!
I like this one too!
It's a great combination of two lovely simple blocks;
Thanks for joining in TGIFF xox

That is so fun!!! and be careful what rabbit hole you go into haha!!!
Pretty Christmas quilt, these blocs are so lovely all together!
Thank you for sharing your blocks and the link, and linking up ;)
Such a nice symmetrical block! Thanks for the link to the pattern!
So happy that you are enjoying this pattern too. I loved the scrappiness and it came together very quickly (I'm notorious for looooong term projects!).
The 9patch blocks are looking great together.
I have some scraps - this is a fun easy pattern!!! Enjoy - 3 inches would take you twice as long! I would have to think about that one! Hugs
