I did it! I am doing Round 2 of AmandaJean's 9-Patch A Day. You knew I would. Be Honest. You Knew!
This time I am trying some things the same and some things different. First the same is using my SCRAPS! This quilt eliminates almost 4 yards between the 9-Patches and the pieced border. That should be a lot from a scrap stash. Not mine though. Also I am cutting a bunch of blocks, 4 to 7, at a time and chain piecing them in one sitting instead of doing only one a day. Now for the different, since you cut 5 squares of one color and 4 of the other I am cutting the 4 squares out of white scraps, either solids or tone on tone. As for the 5 squares I want them to read more solid and be a rainbow. The other different is I am going to cut a square for the pieced border as I go, instead of trying to pull out the fabric again and cut a square. The last different thing I am doing is trimming my blocks to 6 1/2 inches as I make them instead of doing all 70 at the same time.
Anyone else going to jump in with the 9-Patch A Day Project. It would be a great way to use scraps and the quilt could be donated.
Today I am also cut out the last of the novelty prints for I Spy A Swap. I am hoping to get mine in the mail this week. I have to go to the post office tomorrow for Scott so I am hoping to kill two birds with one stone.
