Here are some of the little nine patches that I've been stitching during the past year. Nine hundred blocks that finish at 1 1/2" are needed for my layout and I have over 700 stitched, so far. But...I really need to finish the Mumbo Gumbo quilt, frame my x stitch designs and work on other projects that have a deadline looming soon. Why do I always get the urge to work on things other than what I should be working on? The nines will have sashings from the shirting fabric between the five block sections with another little niner serving as a cornerstone.
Yesterday, I took a ride towards the Detroit area with my DDIL to visit her nephew from Germany who is in Michigan visiting his sister's family. There was a lot of German spoken around me! I really need to learn. It was a fun day.
The bracelet in the picture spells "QUILTER" and is the freebie given from the shop hop I did last month. I took several pictures trying to get a better image of the block letters, but it just wasn't to be. I think I may put the blocks onto a necklace and I'll probably wear it more.
