Ninepatch Pinwheel Quilt #5


When I design a ninepatch pinwheel quilt I start with a ninepatch grid, then I ask what if and make changes to it to get a new ninepatch block in outline.

In this case I added some half-square triangles.

Men Quilt Too!

Quilt Show #2

Usually I treat this blog as a sketchbook in which I explore quilt design ideas. I seldom use it as a showcase for my quilts.

However, that said, for the second year in a row I'm taking part in an on-line quilt show, sponsored by Pigtales and Quilts.

This is my opportunity to prove that I occasionally do some real work and sew the quilts that I design.
