Read all the way to the end of the post to find out about my Accuquilt Go! Giveaway.
About two months ago I was busy making scrappy nine patches for the Crab Apple quilt in Bonnie Hunter’s Leader and Ender book. I never stopped to count how many blocks I had and apparently, I got carried away. I had 63 extra nine patch blocks! I’ve been hunting for a pattern that would allow me to use them up when I came across Judy Laquidara’s pattern Cotton Candy Squares in her Weekend Quilts book.
I am deviating from the pattern bit and don’t know exactly what I am going to do as I go along, but for now, these are the blocks that I am coming up with.
Where Judy has a light print in the center of the block, I opted for a dark. I also think that I will be putting a dark cornerstone in the sashing between the blocks. I am not at all sure what it will turn out looking like, it’s a decide as I go quilt. I have used up the 63 nine patches I had made and made an extra 17. Now I am at a stand still with this project until I have more nine patches finished. I only sew them as a leader and ender project so this is a quilt that will be hanging around for a while.
