Square, circle, square...

Mostly this week I've been making my smaller 9 patch blocks.  I haven't sewn any of them together, just laid them out on the floor as I went.  I want plenty to play around with and even though I am being (for me) quite efficient, they take a while to make.  I hardly ever think to do this, usually it's one little unit at a time, but with this I am trying at least to line up two or three bits to sew at a time.  Even so there's lots of fitting together, adding of little bits etc to be done.


I don't often keep making the same unit over and over - short attention span don't you know - but am persisting with these as I don't want to get over-excited andoverdo the circles. In the end, though, I'd had enough and did make just one...

  1. I love the gentleness of the colours. Odd numbers always work for me so how about another circle?

  2. I love this, and it is so nice to see the progress over the different posts! It'll be interesting to see where it will end up eventually...

  3. Clever you. I love the way you've grouped some of the circles but still have another on the right. The long strips of gold frame a pair of them so well. And yet, it will be even better next time you share. Congratulations.

  4. I just finished looking at your other posts, and I love the progress on this one. Love they way you arranged the circles, a group of them and then one on the other side. Can't wait to see more.

  5. It is looking good. Adding in one more circle really pulled the new blocks together, too.
