My nine patch swap quilt is finished! Back in the fall over a year ago, Barb hosted a block swap. She has a great method to make itsy, bitsy, cutie, patootie nine patches that end up measuring 3" x 3". I loved making them and was excited to see what I got in return. Check out her website for directions.
I was in the modern group and there was also a reproduction group. All these pretty colors go together so nicely! It's also a great scrap eater.
I chose a white with green polka dots for the other patches and my favorite is the black and white striped binding, perfect! Sorry for the crummy pictures but it was raining today.
I ended up doing a meandering quilting stitch all over and it was a bear to quilt. I procrastinated the quilting for quite a time and am so glad I finished it.
It' the perfect size for laying on the couch on a chilly evening, I have already tried it out!
Don't forget to enter a chance to win the Scrap Quilt Secrets book that was in Monday's post. I will be picking the winner on Monday April 4th. Good luck!
