This is the adventure that is my first official I'm-cutting-it-out-myself quilt. I'm calling it the Olive 9 patch because it'll go on the new big girl bed of a little sweetie that lives here.
I picked up a selection of fat quarters and a jelly roll to get started
I have to set things up on my kitchen counter or little hands try to help.
Pairing up the stripes. I found a sweet little polka dot white fabric at Joann's to use as one of the lights
getting ready to sew, again on my kitchen table this time.
I also picked out this leaf pattern as another white. Here's a stack of stripes ready to be cut into the squares
pressing on the ironing board
and here's a finished green patch.
I have a plan for a pastel colored, sort of rainbow with the blocks. Starting at pink and ending with lavender. I'm doing an irish chain with the patches, meaning each 9 patch will be separated with a solid block.
