A day spent quilting is a good day, but a life spent quilting is a good life.

I tell my grandchildren life is so much easier when you have options. You are in the position to make choices that work for you. The same can be said for learning different ways to construct a block. The blue quilt with the stripe is one of my favorites. I made it using the traditional cutting and piecing technique. I did enjoy it but, my time is short and I need to get a baby quilt done soon. So why not use the disappearing nine patch technique to get the same result? Keep in mind the direction of the stripe in row 1 and 3 and I will need to piece the stripe and small square on two sides but it still saves time. This technique is all over the Internet and YouTube so I won't repeat it here. Just remember ...keep learning. Its fun.
