I took the "Vintage Nine Patch" class from Lisa Bongean at Primitives of the Midwest last summer, but didn't get very far. Now that I am done with "Flower Shop," I am going to go back to work on the nine patches. Man, I didn't realize how many I need: 123 in all, so to work I go.
Cut all the solid/vintage pairs down to 4 1/2 inch squares. Before and after the rotary cutter carnage.
And start stitching: Lisa's pattern is pretty easy to follow so far.
And more stitching....
And after who knows how many hours, I have about half of the nine patches I need.What I LOVE about kits is the wonderful variety of fabrics you get to discover. This kit was especially delightful in the array of reproduction prints it contained.
Primitives of the Midwest is held every year (at least for 5, so far) at Quilter's Station in Lee's Summit, Missouri. Here is the link to my mother's patterns at Quilter's Station. I love buying fabric there. They have EVERYTHING!
