Pink Quilt Cutting Progress

Once I had finished the Spring Quilt top, I felt the urge to work on the pink quilt again. I had let it rest for many many weeks, trying to decide what to do and work up the guts to do it. In the end, I cut all the 9-patches and will make an entire disappearing 9-patch quilt. This will also allow me to fill in the gaps from the three mysteriously missing (or just miscounted) blocks, as I have enough pieces to make up disappearing 9-patches, but not full 9-patches.

Here's the pile of cut 9-patches. Looks pretty small, but it will make up a full quilt. It was hard cutting them all apart - once cut, there's no way back...


Now I'm going to have to clear enough floor space to lay out the patches in a pattern I like. That'll be a big task!

you do it with floor space too huh! I don't have enough empty wall for a design wall - too many built in bookshelves that are full.

I'm lucky I have have an empty wall, there is no floor space in my little house. You know, those missing blocks are going to turn up now that you cut more LOL.
