I get to Quilt Along with the Fat Quarter Shop – Double 9 Patch. Back a bit ago, they were looking for quilters for an upcoming project. I replied and was accepted. I’ve said this before, but it feels like when you were a kid and the cool kids asked you to join them. I feel like a cool kid.
The QAL was for a Double 9 Patch block. This was a first for me. In the few years I’ve been quilting, I didn’t really do many blocks. I’ve challenged myself to do more blocks in 2018, so this is a good start.
I pulled out some scrap Cotton & Steel strips and some white Kona strips and got to cutting and sewing.
Surprisingly it went together quickly. Except for a small rip out because I didn’t pay enough attention to my nesting seam.
Here is my block Not bad for a first #double9patchquilt.
