Rick Rack Nines

Ive been working on this one for a while and am finally getting this one to a top stage. This one is Bonnie Hunters Rick Rack Nines from her book Leaders and Enders. I messed up when making this one as I was just putting together 2.5in blocks into 9-patches. This pattern called for 2in blocks. Took me a while to figure out how to adapt this to make her patter, but I finally did. Still have some sewing to finish the top and it need borders. I was thinking a red border, but havnt figured out what to use as the larger border. I had a suggestion to use a small black border and a larger red border. I am thinking I may do that. Ill have to think about it.

Halloween Strip Swap Quilt

Finally got this one to top stage and off to the UFO bin it goes awaiting its turn to be quilted. This was made using this uTube tutorial  by the Three Dudes Quilting.

I will bind this one with an orange to bring that out of the center and finish it off. I wasnt liking this pattern, but now that it is finished its not too bad. Personally I wont do this pattern again.
