Traditional Tuesday - Block 13
Block 13 - 9 PatchDid you know that the 9 Patch was originally a Christmas block? Called "The 9 Days of Christmas" by those who thought 12 days dragged the holiday out way too long, it could only be made in greens and reds until about 1850 when times changed and that tradition fell out of favor. Well, no that's not true. I made it up. Any way, here's our next Christmas block!
I chose a green and red vintage print with yellow solid to go with it. It's not really all that Christmasy, but it's red and green!
From the green print, cut 4 - 2 1/2" squares
From the red print, cut 1 - 2 1/2" square
From the yellow solid, cut 4 - 2 1/2" squares
|You know how to make a 9 Patch. Lay out the squares in any way you choose.|
|Sew the squares into rows and join the rows. Press to the dark. It will be 6 1/2" unfinished.|
