This will be a little review from yesterday. I see that my pictures didn’t load correctly but most of you figured it out anyway which is great! For those who still have questions, keep reading.
Yes, you had to cut the 3 strip unit into slices and of course that measurement would be the same measurement as your strips – all 9 pieces are square, right? So if your strips are cut 1-1/2″ your slices would also be 1-1/2″.
The pressing instructions were for the completed block – study this picture to see which way the rows are pressed so that they lock together when joining positive and negative blocks.
Here is Connie’s little table mat – 49 blocks, 7×7.
I wish everyone would realize that I am not the quilt police and you can make your projects whatever size you wish.
Your charm pack will make only 40 nine patch blocks. Connie has added more blocks to get to her desired size. She says she has lots of nine patches in various states of finished so her little quilt is not indicative of a charm pack which I had not noticed yesterday when I wrote.
We had so much rain yesterday – look at these happy geese!
And now for a little more inspiration. Many of you have ordered Looks Like A Gameboard”. The one I showed you was in Easter colors.
And many of you already know how much Connie loves Halloween. She made just the center part of Gameboard in her favorite orange and black fabrics. Take a look at these pictures – Millie helped!
And a closeup of her quilting – very uneven lines – no pressure for perfection here! We like it this way!
Here’s the next one I’m going to make – red, white and blue!
And after that, this palette of yummy medium prints.
The Gameboard pattern is $3.00.
Goat Gazettes are $12.00.
Beyond The Battlefield is $31.00.
Uncle Sam, both sizes, is $10.00.
Tulip is $3.00.
Have lots of fun making your “charming” 9 Patch blocks!

And I’ll leave you with a chuckle – our color coordinated Millie takes a spit bath on the Halloween Gameboard.
