The framed 9 patch blocks got assembled today and I’m happy with how it turned out. I have brief instructions on my website for making one of these from fat quarters but this one was pieced from a Jelly Roll.

After assembling the framed 9 patch I should have worked on something else on my list but I’ve made good progress the last few days so I let myself play in my strings. It will be a quick Strips and Strings Rail Fence and I’ll keep piecing the blocks this week in between quilting and binding.

And on this beautiful Easter day, I also got out for a nice long hike on my favorite trail.


  1. Love all the photo’s of your walk – you are looking really happy and healthy 🙂

  2. What a great quilt! You gave me the inspiration, I have a gazillion blues (I’m not really a “blue” person), now I know what to do with them. Beautiful hiking area, looks like a lot of fun!

  3. Happy Easter! What a beautiful place to walk. I think spring is finally making an appearance.

  4. I love how your quilt turned out… a very nice finish! And what a nice place to walk and enjoy the beautiful day. You look like you’re pretty much back to your normal self, at least with being able to do the things you love.
