Pink & Purple D9P Finished.

I finished sewing down the binding for this quilt two hours before I got news that the baby was born. Great timing! Grace and I are going to visit this afternoon.

Just a simple Dissappearing 9 Patch, such an easy and effective block, love it. It all came together quickly after being a UFO for a year or so. I say UFO rather than WIP as it wasn't in progress at all.... Feels good to have another UFO out the sewing room. I still have enough blocks to make another of these which is on the list for the next girlfriend due.


I really enjoyed doing the quilting on this. 100% cotton, new needle and smooth stippling all the way, bliss! See the little lovehearts in the stippling? I did a darker pink over the D9P blocks and a light pink on the white.

This is so pretty and the white border sets it off perfectly. So special for a little girl.

I really love this quilt for the wonderful colours (I long to see more purple in other quilts)!

And I love the vibrancy created so effectively with a simple block - brilliant choice of fabrics.

You are now on my list of daily must-check-out's :)
