9 Patch a Day Quilt Along

This spring Amanda at crazymomquilts started a Nine Patch a Day Quilt along. About that time I was just working on the blocks for my first quilt so I didn't think I was ready. Luck for me Amanda decided to do a repeat and now I'm ready to join the fun!

The plan is to make a 6 inch (finished) 9 patch block a day for 70 days to get a large throw (almost twin) size quilt. Each nine-patch is made up of 2 1/2 inch squares. I have 4 1/2 charm packs of Peace of Earth by Three Sisters so I am going to use those. The color pallet will go nicely in my living room. Did you see my first block above?!

Check out the info on the original quilt along at this post on Amanda's blog and also the flicker pool here... join up if you haven't already!
