I am getting ready to cut out Jeremy's quilt. I cut a few squares from the fabrics for the 9 patches. Now I need to figure out how to place them. Yes I know I can cut 4 1/2 inch strips, sew them together, then subcut into 4 1/2" blocks, and sew these together to make my 9 patch block, but I prefer to cut blocks and sew them together. I think I get things more accurate that way. I'm not in a race to get these done, so don't really need to speed things up. (grin) Anyway, I laid them out and took pictures. I thought maybe seeing them on my blog might help me decide which way I like best. Here is block one.
