Tales from the 9 Patch Time Warp

Earlier in the year I swapped 6 inch 9 patches in civil war reproduction fabrics and in this color configuration. 

Just the other day after I finished up my churn dash quilt made of civil war reproductions I was trying to remember what I was going to do with these swapped nine patches. I knew I had something in mind. So, before I forget again I made 6  Sister's Choice blocks out of a few of the 9 patches. 

I think they look more interesting on point. 


Last year I swapped some 6 inch 9 patches in 30s reproduction fabrics. Half of the blocks had white corners so I pulled out the ones with dark corners and made a few more to add to the pile. I don't think I have enough yet...

I'm going to alternate them with some 6 inch Apple Blocks in 30s reproduction fabrics. I'm waiting for that swap of Apples to appear in my mailbox. 


And finally I made 60 - 6 inch 9 patches out of snowflake fabrics I've accumulated.  


I made 60 - 6 inch Snowball blocks out of snowmen fabrics last year intending to make a Snowball 9 Patch quilt for my daughter for Christmas last year.  I guess there's always this year.  I'm ready to assemble this top for a quilt 60 x 72. 

Linking up to Linky Tuesday at Freemotion by the River.  Warp speed ahead!

Those sisters choice blocks look so rich and the 30's reproductions so bright and cheerful. They look really great with the apples.

It was a squeal of delight from me that you just heard! Glad to see the Civil War 9-patches being loved, and I saw one of "mine!"
Your snowflake quilt is a really cute idea and the 30's look good, too!

What fun all those 9-patch projects are! And the postage stamp ones above that, too.
