I'm not the only one who has thought about these easy blocks, though; Crazy Mom and Twiddletails have, too. I've decided that I'm going to make a bunch of two-colour nine-patch blocks for my next quilt, making at least one per day. Weirdly, I woke up about 90 minutes early this morning and knocked one out already (no picture yet, but it's four pink Amy Butler Martini Dot squares and five green striped City Girl squares). I want to use different fabric in each block. This will be good to use my overflowing scrap drawers. Care to join me?

You know I just finished the Stephen quilt (formerly known as the Lotus ) and it had 25-patches that I made easily with strip piecing. But I realized that in all the quilts I've made, I've never made anything involving the humble nine-patch. I like it, though I always think of the Purina logo.
