Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.

Susan at the blog Life on the Bayou. I've included a little photo story of my progress starting with 4 9 patch blocks.
|simple cutting the block into 4|
|add some new fabrics to make a new 9 patch|
|cut this new block apart just like you did the first time.|
|re-arrange the pieces and sew the block back together again|

I am quite happy with how these blocks turned out and will be using this technique again in the future.
I still have oodles more 9 patch blocks to deal with and will share my progress in upcoming posts.
