Siblings Together blocks

A slight sojourn from the Fat Quarter Shop Snapshots block of the month today with some slashed nine patches for the Siblings Together project.

If you aren't already aware, this is an awesome project which gives quilts to siblings separated by the social care system. 

The blocks are pretty simple to make - just make a nine patch and then cut it twice in the diagonal.  Swap some sections between blocks and voila - slashed nine patches! 

Mary Emmens of Handmade by Mary Emmens has requested that fabrics suitable for a teenage boy are used so I dug through my stash and got rid of anything with pink, rainbows and/or ponies! 


  1. Vicki these are brilliant thank you very much :-)

    1. No problem! I shall get them bundled up and sent out.
