i am sooo in!! i love the premise! and i can use the finished quilt as a gift next year! woo...i have some fabrics i really want to use that are black and rainbow and *wild* so my quilt will vibrant 80's looking...woo...i will stitch up these (one for the blanket, one for the pillow)...if you change the size of the block from month to month, can i substitute a similiar block that is 9 inches, or can the second block be always 9 inches? i am not good at altering quilt block patterns (all other patterns, yes, but quilt patterns, i need me directions for success..and even then......)

Actually doing a block of the month from September through August is really cool- then you have 12 complete blocks and two and a half months to turn them into a Christmas gift for someone!!

You aren't behind- your way ahead!! Heck, I might even try this if it's one block per month...

I'm listing two patterns each month but everyone is welcomed to do only one if that's what they'd like! Smiley

Thanks for the other suggestions sajona- I'm about to look at them right now! Smiley

if you change the size of the block from month to month, can i substitute a similiar block that is 9 inches, or can the second block be always 9 inches? i am not good at altering quilt block patterns (all other patterns, yes, but quilt patterns, i need me directions for success..and even then......)

Sure! I'll try to always have at least one 9 inch option for you! Cheesy If there's ever a month where it's hard to find one for some reason you are more than welcomed to substitute it with another block that fits your dimensions better! Cheesy

If you are going to use blocks that don't finish to 9", just make sure they are on a nine-patch grid or it will be very hard to make them finish to 9".  Not impossible, of course, just uber complicated  Sadly 9" just doesn't divide very well!  Anyway, that would just be my preference of course but you are in charge!

Oh this site illustrates the idea of "grid" pretty well, although it doesn't include sixteen-patch which is one of the most common...

Here's a block on Quilter's Cache that finishes to 12" but is on a nine-patch grid so would be pretty easy to adjust:

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

My first block ever with triangles!  WOO!



And yes, I am fully aware that none of my seams match up.  Oh well!

Wait, where did those come from?  I swear I didn't go to the craft store, honest!
