Nine Patch Exchange

Love the oldies in this nine patch exchange!

Gillian participated in a nine patch exchange a few years ago through Cock-a-Doodle Quilts, a local quilt shop that unfortunately no longer exists. Somehow Gillian acquired far more blocks than any other participant, I know this because I remember quilting another nine patch quilt for Gillian a few years ago. I will dig up those pictures and blog about it at a later date.

This quilt was simply quilted  with straight lines.

Nine patch exchanges are organized amongst a group of quilters over a long period of time.  In the end the entire group should have and equal number of identical nine patch blocks.  Exchanges are a lot of fun and they get rid of last bits of your stash.

 

I have been the organizer of a few exchanges. Someday I will blog about the process and the results of them.
