January - 30's Mini Group Meeting

This is the last "Disappearing Nine Patch" quilt the 30's Mini group finished for the Quilts of Valor.
The phase disappearing nine patch suits the method perfectly, because to make the quilt blocks a simple nine patch block is sliced apart -- it disappears and is replaced by four smaller units.

This quilt is made using nine patch blocks with 5" squares. This quilt looks different to the ones that were on the post on December 18th. Click here to see the ones we made that night. This 9 patch block was made with a white square in the middle, red squares around it and blue squares in the corners. They stitched the squares together to form a traditional nine patch. Then each block was cut into four equal pieces by cutting through the block vertically and horizontally.
There are many free patterns for this quilt block.  Click here to find one of them. This is from "Popular Patchwork" website.
 Deb showed us how she sews on her quilt labels.
We always love show and tell.  It doesn't have to be 30's fabric. Our next 30's mini meeting is February 5th, 6:00 at the Community Center.
