9-Patch Plaid {a Nifty Nines QAL Tutorial!}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Join me as I guest blog over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict today!  I'm sharing my 9-Patch Plaid Tutorial as part of the Nifty Nines Quilt Along and the Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2016.  You can download the FREE printable PDF file in my Craftsy shop.  Pattern #BHQ0416008

I've been told this looks like a Christmas quilt, and that wasn't my plan; I see a manly camo quilt!  I've also been told the center red squares look like bleeding from bullet wounds, and this too was not my intention; I view those as scraps of love!

I love the tree backing!

I like your pattern. I am wondering if I can make it scrappy. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern.

Ha, ha! Now it looks like a big lumberjack's shirt! Quilts always look better finished.
