Design Wall Monday 11/6/17

I got totally sidetracked by an unplanned project last week. I had been going through my UFO's and boxes of scraps from previous quilts. I found a bag that contained the leftovers from a Blooming 9Patch quilt that I made in 2004. There were 9-patch blocks, strip sets for more blocks, and extra fabrics. I also knew that I still have yardage of many of the fabrics in my stash.

I spent many hours making 9Patch blocks from the leftover strip sets, plus cutting more strips for additional strip sets that became even more blocks. I played with several possible arrangements of the blocks on my design wall, and I think this is the final choice. All that's missing are the setting triangles around the outside edges and an outer border or two.

I've started joining the 9Patch blocks together at the center of the layout and will work my way out toward the outer edges from there. If you would like to read more about how I join the blocks in an on-point setting like this, check out THIS POST. My method does not involve sewing the blocks together into long diagonal rows.

I'm linking up to Design Wall Monday at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts, Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt, and Moving It Forward at Em's Scrapbag. Check out all of them for tons of amazing quilting inspiration!
