I have so much to show and tell but I have disappeared for a few Pop has been unwell so my sewing plans of the last few days have disappeared I spent yesterday afternoon and most of today with him.......(I did take some applique but only got to stitch some yesterday)

I received these in the mail a couple of weeks ago from the fabulous Fat Quarter Shop........(that place is addictive and dangerous)

made up some of these last weekend...........

had fun playing with the charm packs..........

ended up with 9 blocks of nine patch

I finished putting these together tonight.........I was going to do it on Monday but Carey flogged me along on some wip's (thanks goodness she did) and the bugs have been bad of a night.....coming to the light tonight I am playing but I need some help with decisions - these blocks will have strips around them but do you like 1, 2, 3 or 4

No 1

No 2

No 3

No 4

Oh and you don't have to worry about the "not nice" person - not seen around the traps so no one you all know......just in case you were wondering..........


  1. No 1, although I don't dislike any of them!!


  2. Ohhh, goddies in the mail are such fun - and venturing into the Fat Quarter Shop is very dangerous *lol*

    I'm definitely vote for no.1. I love the symetry in the way the squares makes sort of an X :o) But: your quilt, your choice!

    Hope your Pop is feeling better! Take care and have fun!

  3. love number 1!
    will be fun to see which one you will choose to make.

  4. I like No 1 the best. Good composition and balance. Keep up the good work and take care!

  5. Yup! I agree with No.1 - although No.2 is a close second!!! Hope your Pop is feeling better. Enjoy your sewing. Lucy x

  6. I like number one the best, too. Very pretty fabrics!

  7. Sorry to hear about your Pop - hope he will be ok. I definitely like no.1 the best.

  8. Hope you Pop is better soon!! I love number 1, with number 3 a close second. Gorgeous colours Donna!!

  9. I like number one the best.

  10. Well I must be the odd ball, I like #2. Hope your Pop is ok.

  11. Hum.... I do like 1! They are lovely fabrics! Yes, the FQ store is addictive!

  12. I like #1, with #4 a close second. . .but none of them are bad.

    I hope all goes well with your father.

    In peace & pieces,


  13. Nr.1 and Nr.3 are the ones I like best. But to decide I would need to see more blocks, can´t you put like 60 blocks together 4 times on the floor with the different possibilities?!... I was just joking!
    I wish your Pop all the best. Take care.

  14. I think they all would look nice, but think I like No. 1 best

  15. I'm writing this before reading the other comments. I like #1 the best, the others are also good though. Gorgeous fabrics.

  16. I like #1 too and I hope your Pop is feeling better. :)

  17. Love the disappearing 9 patch and the fabrics are great.
    I prefer No.2 which is what I think you've done in the bigger pic.??? I've had a scotch so I don't know.
    Catch up on Pop soon.

  18. Just say, sorry for my english ...

    I just post an article on mine for you.

  19. number two is very nice , Vero
