Well I promised myself awhile back that I wouldn't make any more baby quilts for my cyber friends as I feel like bit of a baby quilt making machine and I have this to finish and this as well. But a girlfriend had a baby boy yesterday, and I have been lurking in the dolls quilt swap in flickr admiring the work and stumbled across this quilt here, and thought wow, what a stunning and quick block to make, the Dissappearing 9 Patch! So that sent me to the sewing room to cut up 54 3.5 inch squares in blue and green. Fortunately I was babysitting my 2 nephews and neice yesterday so with 5 children running amuck in the house I actually got quite a bit of sewing done.
So above I have all the squares sewn into the 9 patch blocks. And then below here are the same squares cut in half and twirled around.
And then once I had sewn all the blocks back together, I added a 1.5 inch peep border of yellow to frame it, then a wide 5.5 inch border after that. So here it is ready to be sandwiched and quilted! Turn around time from starting to cut the squares to now, about 28 hours! And I even managed to clean the bathroom and do some washing in that time! Must have had my super quilter cap on! :)
