Nine Patch Finish in Sight

I believe I can see the light at the end of the tunnel with these 9 patch blocks!  This has been an ongoing Rainbow Scrap Challenge project.  I only need to complete the blocks for one more color - yellow - and I'll have all the rainbow colors represented.  

I finished the white/red center blocks last night.  I already had all the components cut, so it was a quick job to assemble the blocks.  

When I finish the yellow 9 patches, I'll have 128 blocks.  I'm thinking I may make a few more so I can do a 12 block x 12 block arrangement.  I already have lots of parts and pieces cut, so it shouldn't take much time to add the additional blocks.  Maybe I'll have another flimsy completed before the end of the year? 

There's more red Rainbow Scrap inspiration to be seen at Angela's Soscrappy blog.

  1. gorgeous. I like the way the white in the prints bleeds out into the background. I like the whole thing, the idea of it.

  2. These are awesome! I love all of the different reds you used are so much fun. A 12x12 quilt sounds like a good idea and hopefully you can find a few more scraps to make more blocks. ;)

  16. Angie, I love this pattern and I think I am going to use it for my grandson's red quilt--only with grays where you have white...So, 9-patch with sort of log cabin alternating, right? Yours is just beautiful...hugs, Julierose

  23. I had a lot of months I didn't get to this month...and just read in someone else's blog that by the end of the year we are to have a completed quilt. Not sure why I've not known that.
