I didn't believe I would get this quilt finished this quarter. I only had a few nine patches made and thought it would take a long time to make enough to for a quilt.
I had been cutting squares for it, so I got them out, sorted them into ninepatches and used them to quickly build my blocks. It is astounding how quickly these can be chain pieced together.
Originally I thought of a 10 X 10 layout, then thought a border would lend those edges extra robustness and made it 9 X 9. After looking at several options I settled on a 3" border in grey sketch - it is a quiet border that supports that edge, rather than one that shouts!
This photo shows the lovely backing fabric that Sarah donated to help me make quilts for Siblings Together. She is a lovely generous lady and her comments on my quilts always make me feel happy and energised to make more for this worthy cause.
And here it this scrappy nine patch quilt finished....
