Contemplating the Humble Nine Patch

I have not taken the time to show off the nine patch blocks I received from Barb's Nine Patch Swap.  My design wall is taken up with another project, and I didn't have a good way to display them all.
Instead, I've served up a little sample of all that reproduction nine patch loveliness.  I just love all the different fabrics - and it appears there are no repeats!

I don't know when I will actually start assembling these into a quilt, but I'm having fun contemplating the possibilities.  I started a new Pinterest album just to aid my daydreaming.  Many thanks to Barb for all the inspiration!
I've always liked this setting.  This is from the Quilt Index, where it is called Tanganoxie Nine Patch.  It would be striking in red - or cheddar - or indigo.  Hmmm, how to decide?! 


  1. OOOHh i love that setting too and I don't think I've seen it before!

  2. What a beautiful setting for nine patches. I have a few left from my last quilt and was wondering what to do. So many possibilities in every stack of blocks.

  3. I love that quilt! What a great to bring all the scrappiness together!

  4. Great setting idea! I totally snoozed on this 9-patch swap. I'm looking forward to seeing all the different layouts though.:)
