My Disappearing Nine Patch is Complete!

A quilt isn't completely finished, until there is a final photography session :)

Just a reminder:

The main fabric is a quarter-yard bundle from the Quilting Hen... Everything But the Kitchen Sink Collection
The border and the binding are both clearance fabrics from Connecting Threads - Hope Chest Collection
Pattern: Disappearing Nine Patch (google for tutorials)

 In the bundle, I sorted the fabrics into like-color pairs and then made an X design with the blocks... I had a lot of fun trying out different assortments before I finally decided on this final look.

 Ohp, there's my cheesy Grizz... he was such a good sport... never asking me why I needed to haul two finished quilts with us to Glacier this weekend... never asking me to explain why I needed these final pictures - guess he understands my love of blogging! :)

  1. Love this, Heidi! The 'X' looks so effective...

  2. Dropping by from the Sew Darn Crafty link party.

    This is one of the prettiest disappearing nine patch quilts I've seen. I like the way you layed out the blocks.

  3. I love it and your fabrics are very pretty. At least he smiled, I get the grumpy faces when I ask for photo help on a big quilt :)

  4. Well I'm sure glad he understands your love of blogging cuz we really love the eye candy! Great quilt.
