(12.5 inches raw edge to raw edge) The emphasis of the group is on friendship and sharing. To find out more or register to join email me on This purpose of this blog is to chat and showcase blocks and quilts made by members, kind of like a show and tell . Yours in stitching, Sue

Beautiful! Its amazing how such a simple block makes such a lovely quilt! Nice job!

I like this idea of everyone sending you a 9 patch and then you slice it up. Gives you something totally different but it still all ties together as you have several blocks with the same fabrics to carry it through the quilt. Great idea - hadn't thought of doing that with the block swap!
