Dust off an old book blog hop

 Hi and welcome to my day on the Dust off an old book blog hop.  This hop is being hosted by Bea @  Thank you Be a for letting me join.  

I don't have a lot of old quilt books, maybe after things get better with the pandemic I can get to some thrift shops soon.  

I found this magazine from 1999, called Fabric Showcase Special and found some fun quilts that I thought would be fun to do.  

I chose the Strippy 9 patch quilt.   I love 9 patch quilts.   I am doing this one a bit different, as I am going scrappy.   I hate to waste fabrics, so I enjoy doing scrappy quilts.  

I haven't finished it yet.    Life has been a little bit crazy.   But I do have some stacks of 9 patches.  

And have started making some of the strips.

 I am thinking I will make a few of these in baby doll quilt sizes.   I have granddaughters who would love some and I have a friends little girl who would love some.  

I will definitely have some of these done soon and will be sure to share. 

Please visit these other bloggers.   They have some great projects to share.

  1. I love the sweet colors you choose for your Strippy 9 patch, it's going to be a lovely quilt.

  2. Looks like this will go together very quick. It will be a finish in no time.

  3. Best of luck on finishing up your Hop project. That pattern is going to make a lovely quilt!!
