I post so many pictures of my “in progress” projects on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter that I feel silly writing “Work In Progress” posts. I like recording the process for future reference and reminiscing though, like I did with Duncan’s Roads Quilt.
I spent an evening sorting the cut squares into 35 unique groups of 9 different prints, and have just recently finished sewing those groups into “9-patches.” (See the tutorial at Stitchory Dickory Dock to see an example of a “scrappy” Disappearing 9 Patch tutorial.)
I used my 1/4-Inch Quilting Foot (affiliate link) for the first time. It really does make it easier to have an accurate quarter-inch seam. I wouldn’t call it critical to have for quilting, but it was nice to discover in my bag of sewing feet.
Next up, I’ll be quartering up these blocks to make the 9-patches “disappear.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I am hosting a Craft Night tonight, and I have been looking forward to it all week. Anyone else have social and crafty plans for the weekend?
