Nine Patch in a Square

In 2016 I started making Nine Patch in a Square blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Angela had posted a tutorial on the process here and I thought it would be fun to join in.


I got a total of two months worth of blocks done, blue and brown, and then I fell off the wagon. Well, I have decided that this year I will try to get the rest of the blocks made and turned into a finished quilt.

I went digging into my bin of 2" squares looking for purple and I found these 4 patches.

They were extras that I had saved from making Bonnie Hunter's En Provence quilt and they made a nice start to this month's blocks.


I currently have no ideas or plans for a layout other than alternating the light and dark frames. :)


These are all of the blocks I have made so far and I can see that it really does need some lighter and brighter colours added. Of course, that will happen over the next few months as long as I don't fall off the wagon again. :)

Linking up with other participants in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

Nine patch is such a fun traditional block - so many ways to use them. I like your blocks on point, especially the alternate ones with the darker background!

I love the brown and blue together. It will look even better though with even more colors.
