DWM: January summary and February beginnings from With Strings Attached

Ta-da! Here is Dancing Nines, made from this Bonnie Hunter pattern.  The border is an imitation woodblock print that I've had for many years.   3-1/2 yards used.

Stash report, January:
fabric in:  4 yards, $15.50
fabric out: 18-5/8 yards
net reduction: 14-5/8 yards

Considering that I was out of town, not sewing, for nine days this month I accomplished a lot in January:
*  three flimsies finished
*  two flimsies created
*  four flimsies sold

Here are nine 6.5" (unfin) Snail's Trail blocks for the February Block Lotto.  I've wanted to make these blocks and ...

One more flimsy for January from With Strings Attached

Here's Dancing Nines!

The border fabric is an imitation woodblock print that I got years and years ago.

The flimsy is approx. 58 x 69 and used 3-1/2 yards.

I used the border fabric once before (photo is dated May, 2008).
(Now that I've found this picture, I think I'd like to make it again. It uses 3.5" unfin 9-patches.)

DWM: Dancing Nines from With Strings Attached

I had a productive quilting week, as I shared in the two previous posts.  I appreciate the many comments on both Blue Coins and Postage Stamp Stars.

Last Monday I showed the 9-patch blocks on my design wall.  They are made from 2" squares and thus are 5" unfin/4.5" fin.  I was pretty sure I would set them alternately with hourglass blocks.   I made a sample. I was not excited.

I did a Google images search for "nine patch quilts" and Bonnie Hunter's Dancing Nines came up.  It was just what I wanted.  Click here to see ...

Baby Blue Lozenges from Michelle's Romantic Tangle

Baby Quilt - Blue Lozenges

Blue lozenges for a new baby quilt, this time in the size Bonnie suggested for her Leaders and Enders challenge. I'm not sure if these are easier than the smaller ones I'm making for my own quilt because they're a lot larger, or if it's just that I need a lot fewer of them.

Two More from Scrap Basket

I've been busy trying to become better friends with Fiona, my new Innova. Two more tops have been quilted.

First up is a QOV mystery quilt-along from last summer that Alycia hosted. The quilt was designed by Vicki Welsh. The quilt called for five fabrics but I was determined to use only fabric from my stash. So, here's my scrappy version of the Allegiance quilt along which I'm calling Stars of Valor. It still needs binding.

Also finished, bound and on the guest bed is Winston Ways. This was a Bonnie Hunter class I took at Block ...
