My boys have been out of school for just 2 1/2 weeks and summer has been really busy so far, with lots of transitions. My oldest was at scout camp all last week and this week has been busy with July 4th stuff and family activities (pool, zoo, dutch oven cake making, oh and chores for all). Everybody got through the 4th safe and sound this year, I'm happy to report.

I spent some time (when I had a few minutes for my brain to focus) working on a project/article for the next issue of Modern Patchwork; it will be fun to see my work in print again. I have a working list of ongoing projects too... but decided to get out my Neptune fabric and make some 9-patches. I ended up with 20 of them.

I have more fabric but not a very big variety any more so I decided to stop here and keep the blocks different and interesting. I'm going to get some light aqua sashing/border fabric and do something with a row of squares for a border, too.


  1. Cute Neptune blocks! Watching how they will come together!

  2. I have a shoe box full of 3" nine patch blocks that I inherited from a friend. Still trying to figure out how to use them! Thanks for sharing yours!

  3. Love the blocks. Glad summer family time is taking a first row seat. They'll be grown before you know it! Enjoy.

  4. Lovely! And such a great fabric line! Can't wait to see where this goes!

  5. These are great 9 patch blocks!

  6. Your blocks are very pretty! I look forward to seeing what you do with them. I recently helped my grand-daughter do the 9-patch and we cut them to a disappearing 9-patch. The quilt came out beautiful after trimming them down, and we did it in 2 days!! I was so tired when she left. I am loving summer this year.
