It’s a Happy Scrappy February
Since February is a short month, I’ve chosen this quick-to-make, scrappy block for us and if you happen to have some 3 inch (finished size) 9-patch blocks at your house, you’re almost done.
I call it an Alternating 9-patch and you can find the block directions here:
When you post your blocks, use the tag Alt-9P for your blog post.
Your 9-patch units can be made from your choice of fabrics, as long as the darker fabric appears in the corners (and center). Add to it a Light and a very Dark square.
You can make a maximum of 9 blocks for the February drawing.
As soon as you make a few of these and start playing with them, you’ll see that the layout possibilities for a happy scrappy quilt are endless. I’ve included one in the block directions download. I hope everyone will share their ideas, along with their blocks this month.
