The Dino 9 patch is bound. I didn’t realize I was a little short of a yard of the dinosaur fabric until I’d already started making the 9 patch blocks so I improvised. The too narrow piece of dinosaur fabric went across the top of the quilt and the extra pieces of the 9 patch blocks went across the bottom. Kind of weird but not too bad and I might intentionally try a 9 patch quilt with a novelty strip at the top like this one again but without the extra squares at the bottom.

This is also a UFO finish, my 5th UFO finish for the year.


  1. I quite like both the “extra” strips, plus no leftovers is always satisfying!


  2. I like the way you made it work! I don’t think I ever would have thought of it but I will from now on!! Thanks, Mary!

  3. I love it that way! Including the bottom row. it is just wonderful.
    Oh, and happy birthday too.

  4. What a terrific idea! It really dresses up the quilt. I need to save this idea!
