Happy Wednesday! Today's block 8 for BlockHeads 3 is by Laurie Simpson, 9-Patch Block.
Laurie, like me, likes traditional blocks, and with these, it's all about the fabric.
We actually have 2 blocks for you today. Laurie's block, as she planned it, couldn't be made in an 8" or 4" size so an alternate was created to give everyone, including me, an 8" block for the quilt.
Of course, that pattern didn't come through until after I made the 6" size...
and then I made the alternate in 8" and 4"!
All are fast and fun to make.
So here are my versions for block 8.
First up, the 6" block from the original pattern. I played with combining Sarah's Story with a dab of Nancy's Needle in the center.
Next, I made the 8" alternate, same fabric lines.
Uneven 9 Patch
and then I made the 4" using all Nancy's Needle prints.
I really like the 4" in just 2 fabrics...such tiny pieces, which I love.
So which will I use in my quilt? good question and I don't have answer. I'm the world's worst decision maker. I love making the blocks, to see how the fabrics work. Yes, I could cut out all the pieces, but what a waste that would be if I didn't like it. LOL I would rather cut and sew. I like having orphan blocks for other sampler quilts, Or maybe I'll need them all in this project.
