disappearing nine patch

It's school holidays in Victoria at the moment and the weather has been so cold and windy. So what is a girl to do? You know the answer : Sew
I didn't get around to doing a wish list but a project I had wanted to work on was my disappearing nine patch.
I started it during the Christmas holidays I think and all the blocks were ready to put together. So with nothing on tv again I sat and sewed and I have my first finish for the holidays. It will fit a single bed nicely.
It was too windy to put it on the clothes line so the clothes horse will have to do.

Last night I decided to not wait anymore for my hexie swap flowers for June and just go ahead and finish my scrappy garden. I worked out I needed three more flowers so I have cut them all out, as well as the green and cream filler hexies. I am hoping to have it finished over the next week.

Happy stitching!

I have a UFO that is for my DD that uses the border fabric and another fabric that looks amazingly like your other patterned fabric. I'll post a blog about it tomorrow so you can see. Too funny! And nice quilt!
