I have designed an original pattern for Quilts of Valor that I am calling To The Nines. “To the nines” is an English idiom meaning “to perfection” or “to the highest degree” or to dress “buoyantly and high class” (Wikipedia). Certainly, this applies to our veterans.
The design is simple, a variable star with nine patch centers, alternate with large nine patch blocks. Both blocks are 12-1/2 inches unfinished. The pattern contains three sizes to meet your needs, and the minimum sizes required. Fabric requirements are given in scraps, as that is the way most of our groups get their fabrics, just bits and pieces of all kinds of sizes. This pattern will help you use up those bits in a beautiful design. The pattern also offers two colorway suggestions.

Share your To The Nines quilt in our Facebook group, Friends of From My Carolina Home. I would love for those interested to join our group, but you must answer the questions or you will be declined by the moderators. This keeps the group free of spam, and only open to those real sewists and quilters. Bots don’t answer questions.
