Practicing June

I really wanted to get a reasonable start on June's blocks, hopefully to make up for May, this month's block from FionaPoppy is a disappearing nine patch, it is one that has been on my list of things to try but I haven't got around to it yet. The block came together so quickly that I think I might use these blocks for my god daughter's "Big Sister" quilt, and her little brother/sister's baby quilt, due in a few months.

I was so careful trying to match my seams on the initial nine patch, it is so much easier when there's only 2 seams at a time to think about- it's actually possible to match them up!

Chopping begins...

Then I started playing with the arrangements, I can't tell you how many of these I tried, but these are probably my favourites.

And my final arrangement, I think this turned out pretty well, even though my seams weren't perfect (it wouldn't be a block of mine if they did though I guess!)

  1. Fun! I'd never made these before the Bee and think I may get addicted!

  2. Lovely practice block! Need to get mine done...
