Rain = Sewing and Blogging

 From my 9 patches I decided on the simplest pattern where the block is cut horizontally through the middle then vertically through the middle. Shown here the 80 blocks that resulted. In each case it was the bright solid middle block that was made smallest.

 Here I have sewn the blocks into rows of 10 vertically then joined two together side by side and then repeated. Here the two lots of 2 rows are pinned together.( that's why the little coloured squares look too small down the middle. ).  That will be half the quilt.  I hope to get back to join that seam today. Or do I go for a walk while there's a break in the rain????      I am also making bread. 

 Below is the view I see from the upstairs bedroom This is the brightest leafed  flowering cherry. Another one obviously not quite the same species is starting to flower....hey,  it's not Spring yet.



 PS . My proper photo Driver's Licence came in the mail!

I've done that block. It's a fun one and so easy! Yours looks great, you'll have a quilt in no time. What size did you cut the squares for the initial 9-patch? Rainy day here too. I'm going through, and drastcally thinning out

Looks lovely! I do love choosing the colours and arranging the patches. Such fun. Such a waste of time...

I haven't made that type of block for ages, it makes a great quilt. I noticed blossom coming out here in Adelaide, winter is just starting,so weird.

Great blocks and the quilt top looks great. We have new leaf buds coming on the fig trees, they have only just dropped the old ones! And spring bulbs are flowering, the poor plants are confused.
