I’ve been working on this quilt on & off for a while and finally pieced it together.
It was fun!
I chose fabrics that I had in my stash, most of which I’d bought at WalMart. I bought some extra to make sure I had enough variety.
Quilts don’t have to be expensive… the most I paid was $2 yard!
It is a bright & cheery quilt with mostly yellows/blues/greens… one of my favorite combinations.
The “pattern” I chose to do is called a “Disappearing Nine Patch”.
It’s great for any skill level.
I sewed the fabrics into strips of 3. They strips measured 6 in x 45 in.
I then cut the long strips into 6 in. strips, and sewed three random strips together to make a mock 9-square patch.
I then cut the 9-patch block down the center, both vertically & horizontally.
I put together random blocks, flipping them and trying to keep seams from meeting other seams…
Putting different fabrics together is what makes it fun.
The look I was going for was a totally random, unplanned look.
Sewing the squares together and then the strips went quickly.
I enjoyed the bright fabrics. I love blues.
Here’s a closer look…
Now, all I have to do is hand quilt it!
I picture evenings on the couch, while “watching” TV…
Have fun quilting,
or, if you don’t quilt,
enjoy the warmth of a cozy quilt.
