Power of Nine ~ Modern 9 patch Block of the Month Quilt Pattern

You might be wondering… What the heck is all this ‘Power of Nine’ business in a twelve block quilt?  Well I’ll tell you!  Every block in this quilt is a nine patch block!  Isn’t it a beauty?

I will be hosting a quilt~a~long and making a scrappy version… because, I must face the truth… I’m addicted to scrappy quilts!

Every month I will complete a new scrappy version of the current block AND quilt that individual block on my domestic machine!  I will be using a version of the ‘quilt as you go’ method.  When all the QUILTED blocks are done we will put them all together!  And the quilt will be finished!  Already quilted! Yup, that’s right! Here is a closer peek at block #1:

I’ll kick off block #1 in December!  At the end of the year I will have a beautiful new scrappy version of ‘Power of Nine’!

My (loose) plan is to still keep similar colors within rows but I think I’m going with red, purple, blue and green, scraps.  Want to make the scrappy version with me?  Find the pattern here and get your fabric and batting scraps ready!  We begin in December!

  1. Beautiful! I love the idea of “quilting as we go”! That’s #1 on my list of things I want to become good at. I have all these quilt tops and I’m afraid to quilt them Lol. P.S. It’s very “cool” too!

  2. Beautiful quilt! I really like the colors and the “modern”izing of those traditional quilt blocks. Good job! And I’ll check out your quilt-along with the scrappy version! I like scrappy too!

  3. Love this! Reminds me of mid century colors. What a fun block of the month idea. I did my first one this year and love it! Hopefully I can do another in 2015!
