Working on BIG Brown Scrappy Quilt


Mostly, I’m testing if I can post to this blog AND add some pictures.

Some months ago, Bonnie Hunter issued a leader/ender challenge of a split light/dark block.

Of course, she finished hers some time ago.

I’m still plugging away.

Here are my Split Nine-Patch blocks:


They are not red, actually, but warm browns and, sometimes, a deeper red/brown.

Here’s the quilt taking shape on my design wall:


I’m really enjoying the novel way to off-set the light/dark.  It’s from Lynn Roddy Brown (, and she took it from a batik quilt made by Elizabeth Broussard that appeared in Brown’s book PATCHWORK PLAY QUILTS.  Brown’s version appeared in the January/February 2014 issue of QUILTMAKER magazine.  I am only using the center piece as I modified the block to work with 2 1/2-inch squares that make a 6-inch block. This quilt will be something like 96 inches square and will have 256 blocks.

Here’s Bonnie’s Split Nine-Patch Leader/Ender Challenge Quilt Ready to be Bound:

PS:  This blog works just like mine, and it’s EASY!  We’re going to have so much fun with it!
