We had a lively discussion in one of my classes this week about the depiction of the letter V and what it means to Quilters. I have a good mental picture of that block.
Something about the Nine Patch completely encapsulates Quiltmaking. It is geometry, fabric and craft all rolled together. So the 9 In 9 is a perfect representation of the letter “N” in our Quilters Alphabet.
It is official! With this block we are halfway through our Quilters Alphabet. And this is a block made for celebratation! A Mariners Compass-done the easy way- FUSED!
Wow, we are nearly halfway through the alphabet! I guess it makes sense, at the end of June, the year is half over and we will be halfway done with our 2012 Block of the Week!
OK, so Celtic starts with C not K… It does sound like it starts with a K! This is a simplified version of a very popular, traditional Celtic appliqué design… But with a Lyn Brown twist!
