Philadelphia Pavement and Some 9-Patch Prep

Happy Fourth of July!  We had extreme heat today (115 heat indices), so I thought my time would be best spent in the sewing room.  I did leave the sewing machine to spend time with my family too, but I seem to be an extreme wimp in extreme heat.

Today's block has a shoo fly block in the middle.  It was a quick and easy block so I had time to work on my 9-patches.  This is a 10-inch block and is number 186 of 366.

I decided that my time would be better spent if I had all my strips cut.  That way when I have short periods of time I can grab strips and sew some 9-patches rather than cutting and then trying to piece them all at once.

After my strips were cut I started sewing sets together.  I'm excited to cut tomorrow and have some more finished blocks.  I'm linking with WIP Wednesday.  Happy Stitching!!

Is that 115 Fahrenheit? Love the block and the colours for your 9 patch quilt are lovely.
