Yup, they just seem to be the dominant item in my kit stash! This one is from a Connecting Threads kit, “Wheat Stripe”, purchased……..well, a while back. I spotted this pattern ‘cuz I always wondered how what I refer to as a “stretched 9-patch” would be to put together. I rather enjoy stitching curves so this one was fun! The 9-patch pieces were stitched and the curves were next…… . I prefer not to pin but use glue to hold the pieces together for the stitching…. Here’s a video showing the process (using pins). Glued and ready (flip the piece over so the convex piece is on top). Blocks joined and ready for borders. Next, the sandwiching and quilting..thread choices.. and determining the ‘what’ to stitch…. There was enough fabric for backing, too…yay! A finish…. A single layer of Hobbs 80/20 produced a nice texture.

I really like those curves!
Thank you, Kathy💜💜
That turned out well!
I am quite pleased with it but can’t imagine doing a whole quilt with the block! I’m really not a piecer!!!
A question on using glue or spray on adhesive…How do you keep from gumming up your needle/machine?
The glue is applied in ‘dots’ rather than the whole area. I try to keep it toward the edge more. I haven’t had issues with the glue but I have with other adhesives. Also, the school glue can be ironed which will help it hold better for the stitching but it will still wash out beautifully. Great question! If my needle does get gunked, I put a little alcohol on a cotton pad and wipe it off…..helps for a while, anyhow.
