Now on to the tutorial. The nine patch is such a classic. So many great quilts can be made with it. Sarah did a fun series last year called Nifty Nines. She offered many great designs and tutorials. I realized while preparing for this blog that I've made several variations on the nine patch: maverick stars, wonky flowers, and disappearing nine patches. A tutorial for that can be found here. I made these nine patch blocks as part of a bee.
And this Quilty hug was a group effort.
I don't know how I could have missed making a simple nine patch. Especially since it is so scrap friendly. Well I plan to remedy that. While watching videos in prepartion for learning to use my go I came across this video.
I thought if I can cut squares from strips why not from strip sets? So I tried it. I took strips I had cut with my 2 1/2" strip cutter. I found that you want them at least 8" long. You will need three sets of strips from two different fabrics.
