The Nine Patch .....


The Nine Patch quilt has been quilted now...

I have done each patch the same ... in the dark squares there are curved orange peel which make a whirlygig type shape that I like....



... and in the light shapes which is hard to see there is a ribbon type shape....


... and I have done this joined ribbon look in the sashing... theres a lot of sashing!!! hmmmm


I love the look and feel of a quilted quilt.....


... the binding is acutally on now... I found a piece that has lots of colours in it to go with the quilt...


I've got 2 quilts waiting for me to sew down the binding...  it's just going to have to get a bit cooler for me to do that!

I still had some patches left and Susan has kindly sent me some she had spare after making her quilt.... so I should get another nice size quilt with these.... one day!!!

Thanks so much Susan - it's going to be great having the extra's to play with


I am still working with reproduction fabrics with the sampler quilt and this week we got two blocks done


Dog Tooth Violet - 

Cross and Crown - 

Only got 2 blocks done this week as I had to leave early to do a bit of shopping...


No more moaning about being housebound!! - except I just want to leave it nice and safe inside the garage!! haha

Righto, Gotto Go....  maybe a road trip?

Love the new wheels! Glad the nine patches will be used. Like the quilting too, you will have to think of a different layout for the second one.
