9 Patches

My friend Rae Ann and I have something in common, we both hand piece most of all we make. It's not that we don't have sewing mahcines, they just aren't very accessible for either of us for different reasons. I read on her Blog that she was making 9 Patches along with some other ladies from the Half Pint Quilt Along. I decided I didn't have enough to do already (Yeh right), so the other morning I took out my scraps of 30's fabrics and started cutting (Rae and I both love 30's fabrics). I didn't tell her what I was doing, until I called her yesterday evening. This is a picture of a few of the blocks I was able to hand piece together. I've joined the Half Pint Quilt Along, but I know I'll not finish my Lap Quilt in time for the Parade of Quilts (I just started), but it keeps Rae Ann and I busy and we have something to talk about when we call either other. We have miles and miles between us, she's on one coast and I'm on the other. Someday we're going to meet. Perhaps Lancaster, PA for the Quilt Show!!!
