Hey Everyone!

Welcome to week two of Quilting from ‘Square’ One – Disappearing 9-Patch! How did week one go?  Hopefully smoothly and y’all are pumped to put these sets of three together.  What do ya say; let’s jump right in!

Below you will see our three lovely rows that we have sewn together in anticipation of this ‘nesting’ moment.  Hopefully you’ve sewn all of your groupings of three together and are excited for this next step. Did you happen to catch my bonus video on YouTube? It’s all about chain piecing so if you are a little behind it is definitely a good watch and will speed up your process immensely. Okay back to business…let’s combine these three patches into nine shall we?

I wanted to go a little non-traditional so I picked boy colors and simple shapes, but not juvenile in nature.  This one goes up fast and the best part is you can actually get two quilts out of one jelly roll.  That also means that you can use one Rolie Polie for this size of a quilt. What do ya say; let’s get started!
