I have sets in these sizes (in no particular order):
- 8 3/4" hand pieced Charity blocks from Guild
- 4 1/2" scrappy Exchange 1989? 74 blocks
- 4 1/2" Amish Charity blocks from Guild
- 3" Amish Exchange 1990? 12 blocks
- 3" scrappy exhange Exchange 1996 14 blocks
- 2 1/4" blue and white Exchange 1995 These were so fun I just kept going like the Everready bunny.... 180 blocks
- 2 1/4" red and white Exchange 1995 ditto/the bunny again. Only 63 blocks
- 6" exchange all dark corners....done about 1988. 91 blocks.
The third set; Amish 9-patches;
One of the big blocks were sewn together. I vaguely remember someone saying to just sew them together; so I did. This took a wee bit longer, maybe 4 hours since there was some ripping to do too and lost of seams to match. Now I have another top to take to the guild.
One woman is in charge of Charity Quilts and she puts together bags of quilt kits. So when I pass this back to her she will cut a back and a batting for it, then tie them together and next month a quilter will pick it up and quilt it. Then it goes back and someone who likes to bind may pick it up the next month and bind it. That way our guild makes close to 300 quilts a year for charity. The goal is to have one for each member to donate. I quilted 4 last year....but these are the first of the tops I've put together for them.
So my pile of 9-patches is now smaller and will go back in the drawer. I did design a setting for 1 set in EQ7.
What do you think of this alternate set? The strips are just wider.better? or worse? Position them on your screen so that parts of both show and stand back to compare them.
I may have to actually make this.
