As Mother's Day and my mother's birthday approached in 2012 I was preparing for emigration from Australia to the USA and I decided to make a quilt for my mum to give her on my farewell trip to Narrabri.
Mum had given me some gorgeous green fabric years before that I never quite wanted to use, until this quilt. It was a difficult color to find fat quarters to match but it turned out okay.
Some days attacking the scraps happens one ugly fabric nine patch at a time...
I dislike both these fabrics but I'm betting that once it's in a scrappy nine patch quilt I won't even notice them!
I'm gonna try and do several nine patch blocks a week to bust my scrap stash! I have two current nine patch WIPs one with 3" squares and one with 2.5" squares. The two inch squares I sew into 100 patch blocks for another scrappy quilt.
