The 9patch game continues

Now comes the block number 6 called Ribbon quilt. It was very easy to make.
Half square triangles and a square in the centre.


I have found an interesting tutorial here:

This is great if you want to have more Ribbon quilt blocks.
Probably one day I will give it a try.
The place of this block in the whole quilt is:


The number 7 is very common Greek square.


To be honest I am very sorry I have started this project as a Recycle project - I have collected some corduroy shirts. They are very colorful and nice to touch, but sewing them is a disaster for me. Some of them are very soft, some have 3% lycra. I am very punctual to cut and sew along the lines of the printed pattern. This block took me a tittle more time than sewing it with cotton fabrics.
Anyway like the final look.



I have googled this block and think that most beautiful result is Fresh Lemon Quilts color idea



 The previous blocks from the Game you can found HERE, Here,  hEre and heRe :)

The game 9Patch

The game 9patch is almost to the end and I realized I haven't wrote any post after the third block.
This year I promise to be more organized.
Here is the block N4 (centre 9patch} and its place in the whole quilt.



The block Number 5 (Pinwheel variation) comes, too.


Here are some tips for sewing the star.


Once you prepare the star beams simply add to the other pieces of the 9patch block.


It is very important to look after the place of the beam :)
As you see I haven't looked.
Anyway - I like the result, so didn't rip.


Wait for the next blocks.
