I forgot to measure it but I THINK it's about 78 x 78
It's a Puss in the Corner block set on point with 3 inch nine patches for centers and stripes for sashing.
I had the nine patches already made. I used some 2.5 inch scraps and scrap chunks for the sides of the Puss in the Corner block and all of the corners came from the 2.5 inch scrap bin.
One of the things I loved about the quilt was the striped sashing idea. I hunted around in my stash and found ONE larger pieces of striped fabric that I bought for a donation quilt backing. Would it work? (Probably...I'm trying to make do and use stash for as long as possible). Would it be enough? (After piecing together some strips).
This is the second flimsy within the last couple of weeks that used little nine patches. The other was a zig zag nine patch (which also has no clever name).
Someone suggested they would like to see how many nine patches I have left after I mentioned I would be off searching for more quilts to make that use them. Well, here's what's left now - a 16 quart container of them. (Why not just label it as a four gallon container?)
That's not counting some darker ones I have set aside in a project box...
...to complete a Jack's Chain.
And now that I've taken it down from the top shelf I guess I should work on Jack's Chain again.
