Each of the 9 blocks is to have 9 different fabrics in it. That's the beauty of the Crazy 9 patch and what drew me to choosing these for my quilt. Well, here's what happens when you don't make sure that between the sewing machine and ironing board that you didn't inadvertently, reverse the order of those 9 fabrics... you will end up with a block that looks like the one on the left rather than a correctly pieced one as you see on the right. One block messed up, isn't terrible, but due to the method of piecing a crazy 9 patch... the error is extended to include ALL 9 blocks in this set. Major "uh-oh". See how this could drive you crazy? ;o)...LOL... Well, that mistake was humbling.... Can you say, "seam ripper"? ;o)
made sure to not repeat the mistakes made on the first.
Check out 8 of the 9 blocks I made from the second set of fabrics! The blocks haven't been squared up yet, but I was so excited with the results that I had to show you.
Then I went on to sew the third set of fabrics, making another 9 blocks. The dark brown Kona stands out like a beacon at this point, but I'm sure it'll be great once I decide on the final layout of my blocks (not that I'm finished making blocks just yet).
All this luscious colour is so energizing! My husband is very happy with my results so far on his quilt. I'm quite content to be staying indoors, drinking lots of tea and being creative while our cold weather continues.
