Circa 1880 Nine Patch Blocks

Here's the next batch of blocks.  Several fussy cut blocks in this batch, which I adore.  
I acquired a bunch of new shirtings and I can't wait to use them.  Yes...I'm still making Circa 1880 blocks.  I'm still trading them,  have designed another quilt using them, and just plain can't stop making them!!  

Have you been collecting more shirting and dark prints for your blocks?  The scrappier the better, I say.  If ever there was a quilt to use more and more fabrics, it's the Circa 1880 Nine Patch.  

The four prints on the left are new Temecula Treasures by Sheryl Johnson of Temecula Quilt Co., and the beautiful print on the right is from Bristle Creek Farmhouse by Paula Barnes of Red Crinoline Quilts.  

Go shopping!!!!


  1. I hope you publish the new quilt design using these adorable blocks! I've made dozens of them already, and I'm only in my first month of a 12-month program. We all need another quilt pattern for these blocks please!

  2. I love the fussy cuts, too. So fun to find new prints that work that way.
    Recently I acquired a few of the Temecula prints, and even though I keep thinking I am finished making blocks, there always seems to be a reason to stitch up a few more. :)
