I love when something I've been working on is finally ready for the big reveal!! I'm so, so pleased to announce the introduction of my newest Tokens of the Past pattern, called Nine Patch Reverie!! I'm lovin' me a Nine Patch block, and I've been thinking about this pattern for awhile.
While I love a simple, traditional Nine Patch quilt, there's a lot of plain, classic patterns out there, and you certainly don't need another. I set out to design three quilts, all using Nine Patch blocks, all different from one another, and different from what's already been done. I hope you like them!!
One important thing you need to know is there are larger, alternate sizes for each quilt included in the pattern.
If you're a regular reader of my blog, you know I love tiny, little blocks. Aborable little blocks. Downright irresistible little blocks.....to me, that is. No so for everyone, and I totally get that, so I did the math to include at least one larger size quilt for each of the three in this pattern. Read on....

The size of the finished block in this, the smallest one, is 4 inches, with the quilt measuring 22" x 26". The larger, alternate size has a finished block of 6 inches, with the quilt measuring 34" x 40".

The size of the finished block in this one is 4 1/2 (which means those Nine Patches are 1 1/2), with the quilt measuring 23" x 29". Now, because of that Sawtooth border....the math just didn't work for any other size except to double the size of the blocks, which of course doubled the size of the quilt. So, the next largest size has blocks finishing to 9 inches, with the quilt measuring 51" x 64". A yummy lap/throw size.

The size of the finished block, for this the smallest quilt, is 1 1/2 inches, with the quilt measuring 18" x 20". Soooo little, and sooo cute!
Nines In Blue quilt, double the size, and with the light fabric replacing the blue background, and I changed the squares to all scrappy darks. Kinda fun...what do you think??
The quilt to the right is the next larger size, with finished blocks measuring 3 inches, and the quilt measuring 34 1/2" x 39". There is yet another, largest size for Nines In Blue with a block size of 4 1/2, with the quilt measuring 23" x 29".
They're all versatile, fun, and easy. All have our favorite Nine Patch block. I hope they pique your interest! Click here to order the Tokens of the Past: Nine Patch Reverie pattern today!
I'm off to quilt market in Minneapolis for the week.
If you order a pattern, it will ship while I'm gone.
I won't be posting on my blog again until I get back home, but I will try to post regularly to Instagram and Facebook, so I invite you to follow me there.
Until then, I hope you find some time to enjoy yourself and sew awhile.
