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!!
