I know Moseley and I haven't posted for a while, but I've been working on something really, REALLY exciting and fun with our Ghost Writer. Remember a while ago Moseley showed you the Magic Nine Patch quilt? Yes, that's it! If you don't remember, click those hyperlinks as a reminder! It's the one called "Lazy Days-zies"! I really like that quilt and I wanted to know why our Ghost Writer calls it "magic"! I thought the best way to get to the bottom of it all was to interview her!
What follows is our interview: my initials for me (BL) and hers (KZK) for her. Are you with me? Let's get started!
BL: Cool beans! I get it now! That seems pretty easy so far! When does the magic start?!?
KZK: Right now! You have 4 pieces now. You want to take two opposite corners and turn those pieces 180 degrees -- so the featured flower fab is in the middle! OK?
BL: Umm... can I have a cookie?
BL: OK... how about a video of that? It's a little confusing, too!
KZK: Here you go - though I warn you, I got a bit confused myself trying to explain it! It's easier just to show you! BL: That IS like magic! It's like an interlocking chain ... or maybe lavender pinwheels or something! COOL!
KZK: I think it's cool, too - fun, quick and easy, yet interesting!
BL: Is that all there is to it?
KZK: That's it - just sew that "new" block together and you've got it! Add more blocks and make it as big as you'd like it!
BL: Have you made other projects with this pattern?
KZK: Yes. You can do all kinds of great stuff with it! I got a totally different "feel" to it using some Christmas fabrics. I haven't quilted it yet, but here's a table-runner I'm working on:
BL: Ooooh, cool! Hey, is that a member of the Army of Four with it? I always pick up their scents on you!
KZK: Yes, that's Dave. He always helps me with my quilts.
BL: He looks fun!
KZK: He is fun. Before we get side-tracked, this is really versatile and can be done "scrappy", too. That's going to be my next project, I think! Click here to see one I found on the web! It's a totally different look done in scraps! That blogger gave a great tutorial, too, in case mine was a bit lacking.
BL: I think you made perfect sense!
KZK: Thanks, Bristol! You're a sweet puppy!
BL: Thank you! Can I have a cookie now? Or wait! I have another idea ....
KZK: OK, good puppy! Let's play!
I hope you enjoyed my interview with our Ghost Writer. If you have any questions at ALL about the Magic 9-Patch, please leave us a comment, zip us an email or stop by and see me! We're always happy to help!
