Spinning 9's!!


 (More photos to come tomorrow)

  This months block for the Project Quilt   Focas Through the Prism Challenge is the "Nine Patch".  I knew just what I was going to do and it befit the Host of the Challenge; Kim!!

     Some months ago I bought a pattern called "Spinning Nines".  It was designed by Kim Lapeck from the Persimmon Dreams blog.   I used it once in another project and loved it!  So I decide to alter it to fit this challenge! 

     I have been using a tone on tone or a neutral in this challenge each month.  This time I reached out a bit and allowed just a hint of purple in it.   I vowed to use just the fabric I had, so it worked! 

     I cut all the original squares to 3 inches and made this base. 

     I then cut apart the pieces to make the second squares

     I then played with the different Layouts Kim put in her pattern and decided on this!! 

     I quilted the squares with curled.  In the half square triangles I did a feather type pattern. 

     To bind it I used the the batik fabric from the layout. 

     The backing I used a scrap peace that matched the colors. 

     This is one of my favorite ones yet!!
