Quilt 118 - Andrea's Disappearing Nine Patch

2008, 50" x 50"

I bought the fabrics in this quilt at the 2008 Quilt Market in Portland. It was a set of fat quarters from Sandi Henderson's Ginger Blossom collection. I just loved the fabrics and wanted to keep them all together and use a pattern that would show off my favorites. Mom had recently shown me the Disappearing Nine Patch pattern (a large 9 patch cut in half to form 4 blocks) and I thought it would be the perfect thing.

I pieced the blocks the week before Christmas and had enough to make two lap size quilts, so my sister-in-law Andrea was the lucky recipient of the second one! I don't have mine finished yet, but I actually gave a completed quilt as a present...and Mom didn't even need to finish the binding on the car ride over!

Below is a detail of the quilting and a shot of the cozy Minky fabric we used for the back. Thanks for the great quilting, Mom!

Happy New Year, Everyone!!

Hi Karen!!!!
Happy New Year!!!!! I LOVE MY QUILT!!!! The minkey is absolutely, wonderfully, amazing....which, (go figure) my cat also loves :o/ I've tried to tell Tempo that he can now lay on ANY quilt but that one, but he doesn't listen :o)
Anyway, hope you had a great New Years....we had fireworks that the neighbors brought over...and of course the bonfire.....
Lotsa love..... talk to you later!

ps....we're currently sitting at at Blueberry hills for breakfast with 2 more inches of fresh snow outside....there's about 2 ft at our house.
