Two Tip Tuesday

Last week I showed a nine patch quilt with sashing.  My question…how do you color a nine patch?

Do you color the corners and center with the darks?

Or do you prefer the corners as the lights?

These little gems, when pieced side by side, create a checkerboard!  The photo below is a W.IP. Work In Progress.  The nine patches are tiny at 1 1/2″ finished.

One of the things when sewing miniature blocks…accuracy!

#1- Consistent and accurate seams are a must when piecing miniatures.

I love how a simple nine patch can look so different, just by changing up the color placement.

 

 

 

The shoo fly block is another simple block that can have a very different look just by changing the darks and lights.

#2- Try a variation and color blocks differently.

LOVE the possibilities!

 

 

 

The booth is set up and ready for the opening day in Chattanooga tomorrow!  AQS Quilt Week!  Come see me in booth #207.  I’m also on the Learning Center stage at 3pm tomorrow.  Brilliant Bindings – Perfect Binding Every Time!
