Its been an awfully wet day outside. Perfect to snuggle up inside with the fire going and nothing to do but quilt. My sewing project of choice is the Nine Patch Quilt. I wrote about this one a couple of weeks ago, you can read about it here.
I just love making these little scrappy cute, cute, cute blocks. Its soooo... addictive.
I managed to get some picks in between the rain showers.
The recipe for the nine patch blocks is available as a free PDF download here
How cute is that. Warning ! they are addictive........
A more detailed pattern will be available along with the layout I have chosen, when the quilt is finished.
I am looking forward to sharing my progress with the nine patch quilt.
I hope you have enjoyed my ramblings and pictures

While sewing the flowers on the border of the Feathered Star Quilt, I thought it would be great to share my method
Here are the steps I used to complete the flower and stitch it in place.
For each flower shape, use freezer paper templates and iron the edges over the freezer paper. You can find more detailed instructions about this in my e-book Applique! Creating and Stitching here
There are two types of flowers in the border, I will start the Tutorials with the Pink and Red Daisy flowers.
