The Nine Patch Quilt Block – Cranky Quilt
Make 9 patches with all of those squares: You will end up making 7 blocks.
Aren’t they nice and big? Now the second step. cut them. Yup. Cut them.
Do one block at a time it is easier. To cranky it up even more- Turn the ruler a different way with each block. That way they all don’t slant in one dirrection.
Add a 1 ½ X 9 inch strip in between each block so it isn’t too cranky together. I used my background fabric for this little sashing. Then sew them together in a row. Don’t sew one on the sides, Only between the blocks.
I don’t have a design wall and so it goes on the floor. My legs are only so tall so you get to see only 3 blocks. Get the idea? good.
(note: I am aware there is a differenc in these blocks. I made my 9 patches using a different method and it was way to difficult and cranky to pass along. So they look just a bit different. The 1st block is what yours will really look like. Sorry for confusion. That won’t happen again.)
FINISHED with Row one. Yay!!!
