9-Patches Finished!

Oh, what a chilly morning - lovely bright sunshine, though, so it will be a nice day! Hi Christine, hope you like these little zingers - no drab colours for me in reproduction fabrics! Yesterday I finished my 9-Patches for the Swap - all 72 of them.

My serviced Pfaff is running like a Ferrari, so I took off! It is amazing what incentive it is to get things done when a new pattern, The Civil War Bride, is on its way! Next I'm going to start on the Signature Block Swap - should be fun!

Another great piece of fabric I picked up in Melbourne at Kelani Fabrics - an exclusive, screen-print made in Australia - at this stage I am not sure what I will do with it, I just love it!

A nice, short Post today - my Inbox is full and I have a lot of browsing and commenting to do! Sometimes I find it hard to believe all the beautiful pics showing everyone's work - finished and in progress!

Happy day!

Gosh its hard when you have such precious, special fabric like this. I try to allow myself the freedom to cut into it. I'm not sure where I'm at on that goal.

I'll tell you one thing though. Your nine patches are the perfect thing to wake up to over coffee. And I'm just enjoying the thoughts of cooler weather. Way too early for me to do that but I'm allowing the moment.



Living in the NOW, *karendianne.

You are a busy bee. I really like your patches. I'm very fond of CW fabric too.
I wonder if the tree fabric is from two young Dutch designers who started their business in Australia a few years ago?
