"Afternoon Delight" was one of Sue Garman's favorite patterns. This wonderfully scrappy quilt is truly a delight to make with its combination of simple appliqué and Double Nine-Patch blocks and modified Shoo Fly blocks. Each month you will work on pieced and appliquéd blocks, and in the final month, you will assemble the blocks and add the outer border. The finished quilt measures approximately 86 1/2" inches square.

Let's use this Topic "Afernoon Delight Show and Tell" as a place to show off your beautiful blocks. That way, you know where to come to see what everyone is doing.

The topics that apply to each month are a good place to ask questions or make suggestions for each block.

AND when you post your photos to Social Media, like Instagram, Facebook, etc., use either of these hash tags so everyone there will be able to find our wonderful work:

With the double 9-patch blocks, I am concentrating on sewing strip sets right now. When I get a pile of them, I will start stitching the 9-patches. I have finished all 9 shoo-fly blocks and I'm caught up on the applique, so I am also starting the month 6 applique blocks.

Heather - I struggled too. Hated that first block. Mine are super scrappy, so I needed to check/trim at every step because the fabrics are different weights and stiffnesses. I focused on making a pile of 9-patches - they became more consistent and I checked/trimmed again as necessary to square them up. And I churned out 13 more double-9-patch blocks yesterday. I think the repetition of making many of the same unit helped. The trimming was definitely necessary. Good luck!

Adding my block photo below. I'm working on 3 scrappy quilts concurrently, so saved all the tiny scraps, knowing we had these Double 9-Patches coming up. So I used all the tiny bits. I also realized that these pieces are so tiny, I could use up my "ugly fabric", so into the mix it went too. I've used 4 background fabrics and over 20 prints so far.

These are VERY hard for me but I'm trying my best. Today I am going back to the applique blocks. Each nine patch block took a full hour for me to assemble and there are 64 so.... I think I may do more shoo flys instead :S
