Just an idea

I had this idea in my head for a bit. I just had to get it out and into fabric so it would leave me alone. I thought it would be fun to take a 9 patch and cut it into a circle. Because I already had the fabric cut, these are 9 inch 9 patches.

I grabbed a plate and cut around the block and ended up with this. I want to applique them to different colored background fabrics. I'm thinking original crayola colors like blue, red, purple...I've put them up for now until I can go and get some more fabric in the colors I'm picturing. I've been running through my stash and finding it harder to put things together now. Sounds like a good time to go shopping!!

That's a neat take on the 9-patch. Can't wait to see how they turn out. Jenn

What a cool idea! I love the simple black and white you chose, sure they'll look great on the colored backgrounds! (This is KarinB from swap-bot commenting by the way!)
