Doubling Down on the Nines

Happy New Year!  Now that the holidays have wound down and I know what day of the week is, it's time to show off a new quilt pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop.

From their Classic and Vintage series, I present the Double Nine Patch quilt block!

This is a quick and easy block to make.  I love nine patches and red and white quilts, so this project speaks to my soul on so many levels.  I used a mix of red and white fabrics from Bonnie and Camille's The Good Life.  Because I was in the middle of marching band season with my daughter and time was sparse, I chose not to make the quilt, but I didn't want to just make a block.  So I got to thinking, why not get a jump on the next major holiday?

Wow!  I planned ahead and actually got a holiday project ready in time for the intended holiday.  How very adult of me. LOL

So now, I have a very snazzy, new throw pillow to celebrate Valentine's Day with in my decorating arsenal.

Of course, this maybe the only decorating I do for Valentine's Day....

Thank you so much Fat Quarter Shop for letting me play with another great pattern again!  I just may have to get that awesome kit you are offering in your shop so that I can finally make a full-sized Red and White quilt that is on my "Quilty Bucket List."

Keep on Crafting,
