Design Wall Monday - 4/22/13

Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. at Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))

Yesterday was a designated “Play Day” for me - ;))

I had so much fun -

That I think that I just might designate Sundays -

As “Play Days” from now on -

And change my “Cut and Kit Day” to Saturday - ;))

So -

After I put up the last three LHQSQ blocks on the wall -
(I’m up to 85 in case you’re wondering - ;))

I decided to re-try a technique -

That I had tried a while ago -

With little success - :))

But now that I have SusieQ -

And she is MUCH better at keeping track -

Of my 1/4” seam allowance -

I thought I would give this one a go - again - ;))

I first saw this technique in Billie Lauder’s book -
Quick Quilt Tricks - 2nd Edition - (c) 2002 -

She called it her Nine Patch Units - 2 from 2 Method -

Then I saw another version - HERE -
Moda Bake Shop -
9-Patchtastic Quilt -
Monica/Happy Zombie
May 2009 -

Anyway -

I made these -

MY way - ;))

I’ll tell you more about them later -

I have a couple of ideas for what I want to do with them -

So stay tuned -

In the meantime -

I’m going to make some more - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. That wall of yours is lookin' good! Wow! 85!! I'm impressed. ;o)

    1. As well you should be - haha - just kidding - ;)) I still have 14 more to make - but they are taking me longer as they get more complicated - so I'll just keep plugging away - and take time out now and then when I see another "squirrel" - ;))

  2. I love playing with different techniques and have three of Billie's booklets.

    1. I LOVE Billie's stuff!! I only have two of her booklets - but they are ALWAYS within arm's reach!! I don't think that she gets nearly enough credit for her ingenious methods - and am hoping that anyone who reads my blog will realize that a lot of these "new" tricks are really "old" tricks that she came up with a LONG time ago - ;))


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
