gathering patches......

start cutting 1&1/4" wide strips......

start piecing them into nine patch blocks.....

i'm "cough, cough" "sneeze, sneeze" "sniffle, sniffle" "stitch, stitching" the finishing touches on three little antique quilt inspired primitive quilts, all using nine patch blocks......
yes i do have a bit of a cold and it's taking a little longer to get these done, blowing my nose constantly doesn't help but i am persevering......


so hopefully all will be done and ready for a sew-a-long starting next week......
how many nine patch blocks?
well the first uses five, the second twelve and the third thirty- five, think that adds up to fifty-two......they are all just whatever in color, just that all over scrappy look......
enjoy cheri
