    My favorite quilt block is the 9 patch. When I was ten in 1962 I made my first quilt, a 9 patch. I got the fabric from all my neighbors, I hand stitched all the blocks and my dad built a quilt frame. The best part, my whole family quilted… my mom, dad and even my 2 older brothers. I still have the well loved quilt and the memories of a great time together. Merry Christmas, Kathy
