What Knots March Meeting



Chris had a lovely vacation in Hawaii in February.  She bought some fabric while there and had this lovely quilt completed by our meeting.  Amazing!


Gail completed this kit from Keepsake Quilting.  She say it’s not her colors, but it matches what she’s wearing.

I don’t usually show what I share here because I do my own posts, but Linda C grabbed my camera and took pictures.  These 2 quilt tops were completed on the retreat I went to a few weeks ago.  This first one was a UFO, at least 5 years since  I started it.

     This is another  Disappearing 9 patch, (link to YouTube video) also called split 9 patch or tossed 9 patch.  There are many ways to do and arrange this block, I’ve done a number of them.  For this one I cut a 4 1/2” strip from a bright fabric, and a 4 1/2” strip from a white fabric.  You can work in strip sets or just cut your individual 4 1/2” squares to create your 9-patch.  From these 2 strips you get (2) 9 patch blocks, one with white  in the center and 4 corners, one with the bright in the center and 4 corners.
