Quarter of Nine #14

Flying Shuttles

You won't find a Flying Shuttles block anywhere in this quilt design; but you need to sew Flying Shuttles blocks to make the quilt.

Cut a Flying Shuttles block into quarters and you make what I call Quarter of Nine blocks. You'll notice that it makes two different Quarter of Nine blocks. You can use these new blocks to design your own quilts.

Here are a few examples of what's possible.

Playing with Quarter of Nine blocks made from traditional blocks, like Flying Shuttles, is a fun way for you to discover quilt designs of your own.
