I started my Omigosh! quilt. Omigosh! is right!! I must be absolutely crazy, but I've probably established that fact by now.
And since this quilt is a bit crazy .... and plum crazy is my favorite color ... it's only fitting that this quilt is of course PURPLE!
I went ahead and bought a new die for my Accuquilt to cut the strips -- 1" strips. Yes, finishing at 1/2"!!!
I spent some time cutting a few strips. Aren't they pretty? And then sewed some sets together to make 9 patches.
Next I assembled one of the double 9-patch blocks just to see what it looks like:
OMG!! I'm so in love with this quilt!! Those little itty bitty squares are just adorable! I only have to make 550 9-patches in order to assemble 110 of these little cuties. The 9-patches finish at 1.5" and these blocks finish at 4.5" if my memory serves.
The other block in the quilt is a shoo fly block with 4-patches. I'm anxious to start those, but I'm going to wait until all of the double 9-patches are done.
