WIP Wednesday - Split Nine Patch

I've had so much going on for Cassidy this week that I've had very little sewing time.  That being said, I have manage to get the first four rows sewn together for my split nine-patch leader ender project.

I also have the next two rows pinned and at the ready next to my sewing machine so I can attack it after work.  This was Bonnie's leader/ender challenge from July of last year.  I finally got all 182 blocks done over the weekend and laid out so I could get the top together.  

This quilt has it all:  Texas prints, Christmas and Halloween fabric, kid prints, script prints, just everything!  I kinda see it as a picnic quilt.  I'm really tempted to back it in a lightweight denim.  We'll see.

Jo over at Jo's Country junction has a great challenge to pull a Bonnie UFO to try to finish prior to the start of the new mystery.  This is the only Bonnie UFO I have so it's the one I'm going to work on.  Hope to have it done pretty quickly.


  1. I....LOVE....SCRAPPY...QUILTS! Congratulations on getting going again on an old UFO. You go girl!

  2. Coming along nicely. I love the many ways to set those blocks.

  3. So cute I love all the pieces and contrast (Quilt police here: third block from the bottom left needs to be turned - hope you haven't sewn it in yet) Definitely on my bucket list.

    1. lolol....I was wondering if that would be noticed and commented on! It is actually correct. That is the beginning of a pinwheel that is spinning to create the rows of color. Thanks Key Elements!!

  4. I am joining in too! I did a few of the split nine patch blocks and they are in a tub...looking forward to how yours turn out!

  5. It looks wonderful. This if one challenge I didn't do...(YET)

  6. What a fun setting for your blocks. Good luck getting it done in time. Looks doable.

  7. This quilt is going to be amazing! Can't wait to see it finished!
