Black and White 9-patch



Yes, I am starting another black and white 9-patch. My daughter #2 saw Amanda's black and white and went nuts over it.

So I started on Friday with pressing and cutting. By Sunday afternoon I had 77 blocks made. I only need 50 so there may end up being a third black and white 9-patch. I used 18 different black and white prints and 12 white or white on black prints. I have a good selection of blocks so they will all appear different in the quilt.

I bought a beautiful gray/black/white oriental fabric that I plan on using for the back and border. I need to get that cut today. And I need to cut two fabrics for the hourglass alternate blocks. I may use the oriental fabric there too. Need to get them up on the design wall to see how they look.

The original was so lovely, it's no wonder your other daughter wanted one too. I can't wait to see the finished product. I can't believe how speedy you are! You leave me in the stitchy dust!
Cheers,
Dionne
