Bronco Quilts – work in progress

I have been very busy this weekend, working on trying to get some Bronco quilts made…and it is taking forever!  I sewed, with a little bit of cutting, on Saturday for about 6 hours, and I only have 28 Nine Patches made…and I need at least 42 for one quilt!  After those are made, then I need to make them “disappear”…into a Disappearing Nine Patch design.  Here’s the prototype:

Disappearing9patch

I may need to reconsider the size of the strips, or the construction method; I know I’m slow but, dang!

I expected to already have two made, working on a queen sized quilt, and fleshing out other designs….too bad it’s all in my mind!

The movement of color is really nice. Piecing is very time comsuming. I like the idea of bigger blocks. How many of this do you plan to do each month..... considering giving up sleep are you?!?! You've made great progress even though it is slow. It can only get faster,,,, right?

Thanks, I rather like that movement, too.

I've taken a bit of a break from it, hope to get back to it this weekend. So, you'd think I was getting more sleep, but somehow, that's not the case!

I would love to get at least one quilt done per month, that'd be fabulous!
