Blueberry Pickin’

When my husband asked me what my next post was going to be about and I told him, “Blueberry Pickin'” I could see the wheels start to turn as he tried to remember when we went blueberry picking. The answer to that question would be never, but it didn’t take too long for the light bulb to go off.

And now you’re confused! Bare with me and you won’t be for much longer.

My newest hobby is quilting. My mother-in-law taught me how to quilt almost a year ago. I am now making quilts for all of my friends’ new babies, for my mom, and even a couple for me!

My first quilt is a blue and neutral Disappearing 9-Patch. Super simple, yet looks complicated – exactly what you’re going for in a quilting project.

Here’s the how-to for a Disappearing 9-Patch Quilt Block:

Start with a simple 9-patch.9 patch

Cut the 9-patch in half both ways.

Cut 1 Cut 2

You now have 4 pieces. Rearrange them.

Sew the 4 pieces together and you now have your Disappearing 9-Patch!Disappearing 9 Patch

And now I will answer the mystery about the title of this blog post. Every quilt you make should be given a name. It doesn’t have to make sense to anyone but you. Below is the photo of my first quilt. When I looked at it it gave me a “country/homey” vibe and the name “Blueberry Pickin'” was born. Blueberry Pickin'
