Lucky Nines

Remember my nameless WIP?  She’s done and she has a name:  Lucky Nines.  Thank you for all of the suggestions in your comments and emails!

Like I mentioned before, I have had these 3.5” squares sitting on my table for months and when I had a few minutes I would sew them into nine patch blocks.  And when I say “a few minutes” I mean a FEW minutes.  I quickly figured out that each nine patch took me about 4 minutes to make.  That’s about how long it takes a toddler to use the potty.  And since he always needs his “pwrivacy,” I could use those few minutes to make a block.  How’s that for efficient! 

Once the blocks were done, I considered making two matching baby-size quilts.  Wouldn’t they be sweet for two twin boys?  I had just enough blocks to make two little quilts that would be about 45” x 45".  I chose instead to make one toddler bed-sized quilt.  The deciding factor was simply that I needed to get this project off my table so I could make room for the next few!  This is a great size though – the finished quilt measures 56” x 67”

For the backing I used this green print from the Hooty Hoot line.  I was hoping to be able to find the Blue Jacks print for the back and the blue and brown stripe for the binding, but the green is my second favorite and ended up working just as well.
