Mystery Nine Patches



I wasn't going to spend most of the day making nine patches for Bonnie's mystery quilt...I just couldn't stop myself. And if I didn't finish them today, the stack of fabrics would have stayed out and the mess I created wouldn't have been cleaned. So now I am done with Step 2 and can get back to my other projects until next week. I took another picture of the rails and have also added one of the niners. These blocks finish at 3" which is just the size I like. There are 100 rails and 100 nine patches. I wonder how they will fit into the pattern? It sure is fun to see the colors and fabrics that others have chosen for this quilt.

What a good idea to use Christmas colours. I wish I'd thought of that. You've done well to have all the 9patches put together so quickly.

I'm trying not to guess what the final pattern will be, but I have a few ideas. Now we have to wait for Bonnie to do the next step....

Looking good :)
I have 31 done and need to quit for the day :( my back isn't ready for all the sitting andthen bending to cut. I gave myself a panic attack thinking I was sewing the 9 patches together wrong and came to check against yours- luckily I'm doing it correctly. Enjoy your day :)
