Set 5 of the Blooming 9 Patch

Here's set 5 of the blooming nine patch blocks.  Just one more to go...

And here are all 5 of the sets of 9 patches.  

I have to cut the strips for the next 9 patch still.  I probably won't get to that until next week.  I have to add a sleeve to a quilt I made a while ago for a show that a friend asked me to submit a quilt to.  

I'm also taking a class on Saturday with Carol Doak at the Lowell Quilt Festival, so I need to do a bit of prep for that.  I'm so excited for the class. I haven't taken a class in over a year, maybe two, so it will be nice to learn some new tips.  Even though I've already taken a paper piecing class before, I always seem to learn something in classes I take because someone always seems to have tips and tricks to share.  It's one of my favorite aspects of taking classes.  

I hope to report back with pictures from the festival itself as well after.  I have a bunch of stuff that I'm looking to get from the vendors... thread for the machine quilting of several quilts, backings for 3 quilts, fabric from the Santorini and Kiwi lines, maybe a few charm packs, batiks, and neutral fabrics to add to my stash.  This is one time that I will probably add a bunch of fabrics to my stash at one time.  Yay!!!


  1. Carol Doak is a hoot! I love taking classes from her. You are right you always learn something new when taking a class. Have fun!!

  2. Your nine patch blocks are coming along nicely!
    Enjoy your class with Carol Doak! I have heard she is a very inspiring teacher.

  3. I have just discovered your blog. Thank you for posting the quilt show pictures, such an array of fabulous work. I am new to blogging, I just started my blog a few weeks ago! This is a lot of fun.
