The Bordered 9 Patch Quilt

Have a question or want to show off your project? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

    This is the quilt I am currently working on.  It is from Missouri Star  
Quilt Co.  I brought the pattern from them.  I am using batiks but you can  
use just regular material of your choice.  Using 4 white 2 1/2 inch squares
 and 5 prints, sew into a 9 patch, then take two 6 1/2 inch x 2 1/2 inch re
ctangles sewing to each side of the 9 square, then take another two 6 1/2 i
nch x 2 1/2 rectangles with one white 2 1/2 inch square sewn on each end. S
ew these two rectangles on the other two sides and you now have a bordered  
9 patch.  Make as many block as you want for the width and length.  Think m
ine will be 6 block wide and 7 blocks long with 2 1/2 inch white inner bord
er and a 5 1/2 inch outer border.   I will have a block in each row that is
 the border material.  
     So each block takes four 6 1/2 inch rectangles, five 2 1/2 prints, eig
ht 2 1/2 inch white squares.   Hope I have not confused you.  There is a tu
torial on Missouri Star Quilt Company you can ask to see on the internet.
