As requested, I've uploaded the free pattern of my simplified nine-patch( see my previous post). You can see it here. It's a versatile pattern. I've used it to make a table runner and a full size quilt. If you make something with it I'd love to see a photo. Here's one I made last year. Some of you may have seen it already. I called it Freedom's Wings and it was a Soldier's Angels top we turned in. This one was not scrappy and I added a 6 1/2" sashing to make stars between the blocks.
Go on over to Fabric Tuesday to see what others are doing. You'll find Quilt Story's button on my sidebar.
