First of the 9 Patch Blocks

They are started! These are the beginning blocks of the 9 patch quilt-a-long. I was very pleased with the way these blocks finished. It's exciting to start more tomorrow.

These blocks are so easy to create. It took about 1 hour to cut, iron, sew these blocks. I cant wait to make more of them tomorrow.
I plan to make approximately 3 blocks per day. Im going to give this quilt to my mom, who has just recently been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. She will be having surgery in the near future. I thought this would be a nice, bright and cheery quilt to give to her.
