My goal this year is to have fun with my quilting and to make a few of the quilts that have been on my list forever! One of the quilts I have always wanted to make is a nine patch, 3" queen size, do I decided this is the year to do it. I am working out of my scrap basket first and these are the ones I made so far!
I can never cut for just one quilt at a time or work on quilt at a time so here is my latest little quilt project. Notice all the same fabrics as the nine patches, great time saver make two quilts at once! Its just like one I made last year thats on my wall of little quilts but now the strips are vertical, what a different look!
I am trying to decide on border fabrics....how about a poll?
here are a few I tried....sorry I didn't take the time to crop the pictures but you get the idea I like working on multiple projects at once, I never get bored this way :)
lets call this one A
lets call this one B
lets call this one C
lets call this one D
I would love to know which one do you like best???
and yes please tell me you work on multiple projects at once too!
And did you see Taryn's? I had to laugh when I saw her making one of these scrappy quilts too! A great way to use up those little pieces and/or highlight some of your favorite fabrics.
