So glad to hear it is there.
Did take a bit longer than I thought. I will bear that in mind for the future.

Okay, now that this is getting closer -- what is everyone doing with their nine-patch blocks? How about some ideas. :confused:

Oh, I have to look at all the beauties before I decide what I will be doing with them...maybe place a solid block next to them or make a disappearing nine patch, but I hate the thought of cutting up the blocks everyone has made for me/us. I just am so excited about seeing them all. So much fun, so much love goes into our sewing. Smitten what do you plan on doing?

Here is a pic of the wonderful nine patch.. the blocks are far enough away from each other that if you put some plain in between they will all blend together..

I love the Christmas ornament one.. due to the fact that I am also in a patch swap on the sister forum.. that is with Xmas fabrics I was thinking I could use them to make the ornaments and also make the nine patches in between..

Ladies the possibilities are only as limited as our imagination.. look at the one with the applique nine patches on the boarder ..just to adorable..

i will find more and post.. these were from the quilt shows I went to in the last 2 weeks.

PostSubject: does anyone really want their blocks??   Thu Oct 09, 2008 2:48 am

Well I don't know I just came from a quilt guild meeting last night and I saw the most wonderful nine patch.. but I need about 900 blocks!! do you really want your blocks back?? How about I just so them together into a quilt and then you all can see what you could have gotten..

police call the police nine patches are stolen... be on the lookout for a salt and peppa haired women with her arms loaded in nine patches...approach with caution.. she is armed with a seam ripper and is dangerous... police

:peek: is is safe to come out now is everyone calm?? I will be sorting out the blocks this weekend and getting it all organized.. I hope everyone knows that I will send their lovely blocks back but I really want to see results on what you decide to do with them...congrats on a job well done.. I know the summer seemed very very short.. I think the last 3 weeks seemed longer than the whole summer!! hug08

:3091: I just love these..imagine this is like nine patches falling all around me!!

There's just no way around it, I won't be sending 9 patches. Ever have one of those years where you are tangled up in string and can't get loose? bad girl

Deb, So glad the nine-patch blocks reached you. Wow! Could have been delivered by Pony Express faster than that! Oh well, as long as you got them.
Have been away for past two weeks so trying to get caught up with swap.
By all means, use the extra blocks in quilt for Merry Bee's family. At least that is my opinion.

Yep, I think we all agree to put it towards Mb's quilt.

Say, I took a look at that wonderful Reaching for the Stars quilt...Oh so beautiful! Your Blog is a fun one to look at and I love playing with the Kitty widget!

OT..Pig Trail alert!
Deb..I just wanted to say I love how your star quilt is coming together! It looks like a bit of a logistics nightmare, but will be spectacular once it's all done. When I looked at the coloring page in that magazine it was mind boggling..and you are actually sewing the pieces! :affraid:
I tried to post a comment on your blog, but I'm not a registered user/member/blogger person. You deserve a pat on the back for this one..so I didn't want it be left unsaid. bowing clap
