Scrappy Nine Patches Quilt

Do you remember earlier this year when I reviewed the book "Sew Charming - Scrappy Quilts from 5" Squares" by Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene? I immediately quadrupled one of the patterns to make a quilt for my bed.

I finally added a narrow, pieced border, and an appliqued border...

... and sent it to Melissa from Sew Shabby Quilting so she could work her magic for me. It is so happy and perfect for the warmer temperature.

It is huge: 94" x 101". It took me a few hours to hand bind it, and it is now adorning my bed. No photographs of the bedroom as I still need to make (or buy) coordinating pillow shams. It brightens our bedroom, and now I have two quilts for my bed - this one and the flannel one.

How do you like it? I will forever love it...

  5. It is fabulous! I am making a nine patch and snowball quilt right now and would have not thought of putting them on the diagonal.
