I hope you all survived Halloween? We had about 50 visitors, and I was impressed by the costumes. Every child was dressed up, and so were quite a few of the parents. Also, every child said thank you when I gave them some chocolate, and some even wished us a Happy Halloween. How sweet is that?
I have spent today making 9-Patch blocks in red, green and 2 shades of gold, as I am making a Disappearing 9-patch quilt as a Christmas quilt. I have seen some absolutely stunning versions of this pattern (and some less-than-stunning versions too.) so I sat down and worked out how to do it, drew it up on the computer and played around till I had a layout I liked. This is a really quick and easy pattern and in just a couple of hours I have made 2 rows of a top that will have 8 rows. I have everything cut out, and more blocks made, but I haven't put them into rows yet. Tomorrow I will add more rows and then post a picture. I have decided I love this pattern, and can see myself making more quilts with the DNP in the future.
