It’s been a rather hectic few weeks with packing, weddings and a dose of Covid.   Precious sewing time in the studio has been very limited.  You will remember last time,  I shared with you the beautiful Bluebell Wood fabric range from Lewis & Irene.  I would have loved to share a finished quilt with you, but I’ve just had time to work with three of the designs.

After a bit of pondering, I decided I fancied doing a disappearing nine patch quilt.  It’s been quite a while since I’ve made one.  As the fabric range has three variations of each design, it just seemed to fit.  This is the first group of fabrics I’ve used.

I cut the original squares 3″ square and trimmed the nine patch block to 8 1/2″ square.  For the disappearing nine patch, I cut the block in half horizontally and vertically.  I played around with the pieces and decided on the following layout.

The resulting block was then trimmed to 7″ square which will mean my finished blocks will be 6 1/2″ when I come to joining them together.

 I’m really loving this fabric and and am ready to make a start on the next three fabrics.  Hopefully, it won’t be too long before I have something to show you. Enjoy your sewing time and I’ll be back soon.
