Raggedy & Friends–Blocks 7, 8 and 9

Here we are again…the 20th of January.  It seems like I just posted Block 6 and said that we’re half way there!

This month, I will be releasing Blocks 7, 8 and 9 at one time because they are smaller than the others and each block has only one stitchery each.  I know you won’t have any problems completing the three blocks before the 20th of next month.

Block 7 will look like this…

Block 8 like this…

And Block 9 like this…

To download the PDF file which includes the photos, instructions and line drawings, please click HERE.  Remember to click on the blue download button, allow the file to load and follow the instructions. 

We are now three quarters there with only three blocks remaining after today.  If you haven’t already, you might want to start piecing the blocks together in rows.  Once you have completed piecing the individual rows, you can create the row of sashing that separates each row, adding a 2 1/2” cornerstone of a coordinating piece of fabric in order to frame the individual blocks.  Remember to also make one for the top and at the same time you can make one for the bottom of your quilt and set it aside because the measurements will be the same as for the top.

Have fun, enjoy and we’ll see you on the 20th of February with Block 10.

I am really enjoying this, thank you. I am only just beginning; and my daughter is making one as well. That is a blessing as I haven't gotten her to do a project of any kind for years!

Boy, that was a close one!! Got behind with my blocks and said I would get caught up before this one came out. Last week I finished up the last block (or so I thought). Was laying them out to admire, felt so good and then OHHHH NO 1 block is missing and I don't remember doing it. Found the pattern and sure enough I had not even started it. Hurry Hurry and fast forward to last night. Hurrrray--It's finished!!

Do we have a place to post our pictures? Have looked but can't seem to come up with one. Thanks so very much for your patterns.

Darlene said...

I have sew enjoyed this project and have kept caught up so far. I think this month will go fairly fast. Is there a place to post our pictures to see what everyone is doing?

Hi Kaaren,
Thank you again for your blocks. Your new home looks lovely. Nova Scotia is a place I have always wanted to visit. Maybe someday we will make it there from Pa.

Margie said...

I hope it is not just me, but block 7 on the download is not there. It is blank. The other two blocks print out just fine. Is anyone else having this problem?

Margie said...

Thank You Kaaren, I guess I was in a hurry and didn't go to the very last page. So sorry, will pay more attention next time.
