I have been playing in EQ7 again… I started wondering what would a quilt look like if the small center squares in the uneven NINE patch blocks also had a strip of fabric, making it look like the big (A) blocks. So I redrafted my blocks and plotted out the quilt. I will tell you I have to work on the measurements for the the mathematical measurement would be 1.33 inches ( then you have to add a half inch for seam allowances to cut out your patches.) Who ever, heard of having 1.33+ patches, what number is that in real, useable measurements. I am going to have to convert those numbers but I am not going to deal with it until I actually have time to make the quilt. I will probably use my old tried and true method of cutting out the large patches ( on gridded paper) that fit the project then subdividing it to the appropriate size patches so they will fit the project. I have done this before and it usually works… best there is no math involved…
Here is an illustration of the EQ7 design. I have found some cute baby fabric I can use to make this quilt as a 3 block by 3 block layout. Using large blocks result in faster assembly. And as you know .. we have babies coming to this family.
