After finishing off the Mai Tai Sunrise quilt last year, I still had plenty of nine patches leftover. So this year I will be framing them out and adding snowball corners. If I make 10 each month there will be enough for a nice sized quilt at the end of the year. Here are the blue blocks.
Each of the blue squares is 2 inches, which makes the nine patches 5 inches. The light and dark grey framing strips are 1.5 by 5 and 1.5 by 7. The snowball corners are 2.5 inches, I used the "flip and sew" method. I was inspired by a baby quilt that Bonnie Hunter showed recently. It is always fun to find new ways to put leader and ender blocks to good use.
I hope your 2015 is off to a great start. Use the linky below to share your blue scrap projects so far. I'll be back into town shortly and will be choosing a winner for the blue pack of fabric by Vicki Welsh. Don't forget to enter the drawing, just scroll back to the color announcement post and leave a comment with your favorite word for blue. Vicki has already sold out of of Rainbow Scrap Challenge snack packs and I don't know if she will be making more, so this might be your only chance to have this collection of blue.
