Quilt-A-Long Week 4

Week 4 - Cut 9-Patches and Assemble Quilt Top
July 26 - August 1

So now our 9-Patches are complete and it's time for us to cut them up. This is my second Disappearing 9-Patch and it was still just as scary to cut into completed blocks... what if I cut wrong... what if my ruler slips.... OK, take a deep breath and remember to measure twice before cutting.

And once the blocks are cut into fourths, the fun begins! Now you get to decide how to reassemble the squares. Last time I went for a more random pattern. This time I'm setting the blocks so that my white squares (which are the cut squares) form "sashing". Here are some options I had fun playing around with today...

Omgosh! That is so cute. I really wish I would have decided to do this. I just don't have all the supplies and little fabric scraps to use. I do really want to make a princess quilt though. I admire your quiltiness!
