My sewing room is a mess!  So, to help tidy up, I decided to use my pile of 2 1/2 inch strips to make some split 9-patch blocks.  I've made a quilt from this pattern before, but was reminded of it by Bonnie at Quiltville.  My block is slightly different, as it only has 2 half-square triangle units in each block, and uses a consistant fabric in the centre position of each.
This was also a "no-brainer" idea for my next project!  I'm still contemplating what to make next.... but this will fill in until I decide.

Check out all the creativity at Judy's blog, Patchwork Times.


  1. I really like how your blocks are coming together. Great idea!

  2. I think it looks great too! I haven't done a split 9 pacth block before, but this has a nice overall look.

  3. Very nice, Susan! I love the way your shading is giving extra interest to the blocks.

  4. Love this scrappy look and the design is great!!


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
