Six Sisters

Here are six more of my Sisters Choice. 19 done and 53 more to go! These are my "whenever" blocks. I'm making the star points as leaders and enders, then when I have a stack of them, I make the blocks. Having the 9 patches all ready to go from the swap is certainly making this project far more doable.
I also have way too much fabric, I've got bolts of striped fabric I bought years ago for this exact project. Fast quilts for someone. Think about it, you just cut up squares, sew them back together and you have a fun top for someone who really needs one. Add a star block or 9 patch here and there, that would add an unexpected element to the top. I'm sending off a few bolts to my friend to cut and sew, I'll quilt and bind.
Hope you get some sewing time in this week.

I love the Sisters choice blocks and the bolt of fabric is perfect for a quickie quilt you might need.

What a clever idea with the striped fabric! I love the sisters choice. My first ever block made for a sampler. It captured me for life.

Your Sisters blocks remind me that I have quite a few made and sitting in a box. I need to do something with them.

omigosh, I'm in process of binding a quilt that looks like a clone of your Sister's Choice! I mean it! I started it as a leader-ender a year or two ago and just got it quilted last week. Here's a link: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_a89E6VQeHnc/TMIj4mi7naI/AAAAAAAAERw/G3pqKO0eOgk/s1600/DSCN2394.JPG

The resemblance strikes me as uncanny.
