Day 200/365: Nine-Patch Quilt Blocks

Leave a comment

It rained last night and all morning.  Given California’s current drought, this was a big deal.  I stayed inside most of the day and sewed nine-patch quilt blocks.  It was very satisfying to go through the stacks of 4.5″ squares that I’d cut several months ago, play with combinations of colors and patterns, and piece together these colorful arrangements.  I’m thinking about making more placemats, maybe a couple of table runners, or even a small quilt.  In the meantime, aren’t they pretty?
