I needed a quiet distract from the worry of life. I found some solace in the quiet hours of the early morning reading my quilt magazines. In the October 2017 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine I found a pattern by Christia Watson for this simple block.
I hate not matching fabrics colours into some sort of theme.
I really feel uncomfortable with "lights" that are not white or cream.
I love nine patches. I love scrap quilts....just prefer they coordinate!
This ugly duckling block looks so much better when you join it with three friends.
I am still cringing over the clashing combination of ugly fabrics used. But I could not bring myself to throw the unloved 2.5" squares out, so decided they could live here.
These blocks will be leaders and enders and slowly grow over time. And all that scrap and collection of fat quarters that I have fallen out of love with....its going to find a new home here.
Happy quilting, Sue.
