I finally finished making my nine patches (36 in all). I had planned to add an extra row to the length but I ran out of fabric squares so I decided to be happy with a square queen sized quilt. I'm really happy with how this quilt is coming together. The last patchwork quilt I made, I sewed the rows together (one patch at a time) - I like the method I'm using this time much better. I have also been sewing the nine patch blocks together in another larger nine patch (which becomes a quarter of the quilt). I think this will be my "MO" for other patchwork quilts is the future. Pictures here show how I planned out the smaller patchwork squares to look "randomly" placed. I used tape markers for to help me remember the order to sew them. I now have half of the quilt all sewn together! Woo hoo!
