Jack's Chain #2



I've been slowly, slowly working on my Jack's Chain quilt.  This is my second one and in a completely different colorway from the first which was brights on navy background.  That one a wedding quilt for my grandson and is in the hope chest . It won't be needed for awhile. He's only 9. This one is a little bigger too.   


This is the width I want but it is only about half as long as I want it. 



As you can see...this takes lots and lots and lots and oodles  and oodles of little 3 inch nine patches. 


I've been using little nine patches that are on the darker side as values may go. 


I'm getting low on little nine patches now and would be willing to swap with anyone who is interested.  I'm trying to avoid a lot of duplicate patches in my quilt.  I do swap three times a year with an online group but use the little darlings almost as soon as I get them.  



If you are interested in swapping see the tab I just added to the header of this blog -

HELP WANTED! (39P swap)

I love your Jack's Chains - both of them!
I'll probably be interested in swapping nine patches. First though, I'm going to need to cut a lot of 1.5" strips in the near future - in my straightening efforts, I've discovered that I've used up most of what I'd had on hand. Can't have that!

It's a beauty and if it's only half the size presently what will the measurements be when completed?

What a beautiful idea and a clever way to make the quilt over time. It's a wonder pattern with the way it creates circles and has such movement. What a lucky Grandson.

I love how the colours work in this version - it's got a great, slightly vintage feel to it.

Such a spectacular looking quilt!! I'll have to do a search of your blog and find your first one. I have started this quilt but put it away while I decided on my fabric choices :-) I love that you are making it for a future wedding!
