Wavy blocks sewn

Wavy nine-patch blocks

Last night I finished the last of the 18 wavy nine-patch blocks. They are in various sizes and I really don’t know how I’m going to set them together yet. I’ll play with them on the design wall until I like the layout. The alternating plain squares will be a cute starfish print—leftover fabric from one my granddaughter’s quilts. I’m thinking about cutting oversized squares and rectangles so I have options for trimming and cutting curves.

I’m kind of excited about the quilt. Part of the fun is not knowing how it will look at the end.

By the way, while looking for a beach in Ireland with a name that would tie together the Irish chain block and starfish fabric, I learned that there is a place called Quilty Beach! I’ve got to work that into the quilt’s title somehow.

  1. Debbie, I've been following your Wavy Nine Patch quilt and just love it. My comments and connections were not co-operating, so I didn't leave a comment with my visits but over on our Yahoo lib quilters message board, we have been talking about curved piecing and I would love you to chime in and give the link to your tutorial work on the Nine Patch...I know they would love it! Tell them I made you and do post some photos to get them to noticing it!
