9 Patches can be so much fun! Join Natalia Bonner in this fun online stitch-along, the 9 Patchalong 2.0.
In this second edition of Natalia's hit 9 Patchalong stitch-along, Natalia will teach you how-to think beyond the blocks. We'll stitch 9 new designs on 9 patch quilt blocks. There will be a bit of modern quilting, a bit of more traditional quilting and quite a bit of marking. Natalia will also include 9 bonus designs and 1 fun geometric background filler.
It's easy to look at a quilt and be overwhelmed. In this free stitch-along we're going to break those 9 patches down, mark them one block at a time and then quilt them one block at time.
Let's get stitching!

Something to quilt on. Natalia will be quilting all of her designs on a custom 9 Patchalong panel; you can purchase a panel from Honest Fabric. Natalia will be stitching on the 51"x60" size. If you prefer to piece your own top, we've got a 9 Patchalong Piecing workbook available for purchase here.
Natalia will be using 1 layer of Quilters Dream Poly Deluxe Batting.
Natalia will use four of her machine quilting rulers: 4N1, Mini 4N1, Inside Out & Mini Inside Out.
Natalia will use So Fine #401 on the top and Bottom Line #624 on the bobbin.
If working with the custom panel you will only need backing and binding material.
