I never realized how many different ways 9 patch quilt squares can be used. This week I have been experimenting with them. I want to make a Double Nine Patch Irish Chain Quilt in red and white. Here's the trial block. It finishes at 9 inches, with the smaller corner and center 9 patch squares finishing at 1 inch. I used small scraps for this one, but handling the small pieces is very hard! I will be trying it using strip piecing tonight.
I am also working on a blue and beige pattern. This picture shows 6 1/2 inch squares in the blue and beige and also the red and white.
