Nine patch Sunday.

 I let myself get waaaayyy behind with the nine patches & kicked myself for doing so.  I had 60 blocks to make so yesterday i got stuck into them.

3-1/2"


2"
2"
Saturday night i pulled out the Christmas bom to finish the satin stitch. Not much was left but i was distracted by making Lucy blocks. :) :)
Now to trim & put together. I ran out of thread when i started doing the borders so i ordered 4 more skeins & i was getting a wee bit worried it wasn't enough as i was on the last skein by the time i'd done all 4 borders. Here is what is left.
I do use only one thread when stitching & 2 for french knots & satin stitch otherwise i would've needed 3 times the amount of skeins for the whole quilt.

Now to find a new project to stitch. :) :)

Happy Stitching
