I just discovered over on Amy's blog she is hosting an online blogging Quilt Festival! Such a cool idea! The idea being you choose your favourite quilt and tell it's story.
I'm dragging out this favourite finished back here in August 2007. I think this was the first disappearing 9 patch I did.... I think the tally is now up to about 4? I love it, such an easy and striking pattern, a great scrap buster too.
Look how quickly it went from just a 9 patch here...
To slice and diced here!
I machine quilted an echo stitch around each of the squares, they came down to 3 and a quarter inches when finished.
And then I used masking tape to get such straight and even lines in the borders.
I think maybe I like this one as I don't do many boy quilts and this one went to a friends new baby boy, her fourth child after 3 beautiful girls, that deserves a quilt!
