First I cut out 500 -5" squares, then I sewed them into 56 --9 patch squares, then I
made each square into the "disappearing 9 patch" pattern. I finally have all 56 squares completed.
Next I need to make all of my squares the same size and then I can sew them together.
I can now see why people charge so much for quilts, they are time consuming for sure.
But I am excited to finally see it coming together.
I thought what can I do to make sure all of my quilt squares are even. I had a brain storm
to go to my local hardware store and have them cut me a piece of plexi glass, it works perfectly.
I just go around each square with my rotary cutter and cut off where needed.
Now to match up the squares so the colors will blend together. I think sewing them all together
will be the fun part, to really see my quilt come together. All I can say is a work in progress, more to come.

|And to think so far it is all made from scraps.|
