I worked 4 days this past week, but before and inbetween I've gotten some sewing done. The second Feb Split 9s quilt top was arranged and sewn together.
I had 7 split 9s blocks left and after staring at them for a while on the wall next to the Forest QAL blocks my do. Good Stitches bee mates made I decided the two belonged together.
I got into my scraps and made up enough neutral 9 patches to finish the top. My initial scrap sort-and-cut was only 3 patches short of the total amount I needed! I began playing with all three types of blocks on the design wall.
This one has gone through a lot of iterations. I like to put it on the wall and stare at it for a while. I actually don't have pictures of the first couple arrangements.
I made an extra split 9 block.
And finally I think I've settled on this arrangement with the double bend. But I haven't sewn it all together yet, so it may change again. We'll see.
Finally, with the Tyler Quilt Guild show coming up next weekend I finally got the crumb quilt done! Full finish post coming on this one next Friday.
Also, could someone please explain to me how this little peanut grew into a big cat overnight? I swear it was just yesterday she was palm sized!
