Nine-Patch Quilt Top

I have finished piecing together the Nine-Patch Quilt top and it came together without any problems.

Finished quilt top measures 42.5" x 54.5"

I made a total of 63 blocks, 32 of which are nine-patch blocks. The finished size of each block is 6 inches.


Of course, I also pieced the quilt backing. It is made from more pieces of Amy Butler's latest fabric ranges ~ Daisy Chain and Midwest Modern.


The quilt is basted and ready for quilting. I am looking forward to endless rows of stitching, passing time as I count down towards this week's main event: The Craft and Quilt Fair in Melbourne!!

  12. This looks terrific. I think so often we forget the power of white--of "negative space" in our designs. I think that your design shows off the bold prints well, in giving them room to breathe.

    Nicely done! I've decided, however, that you don't sleep at night. Jealous, over here, of your boundless energy--

  14. Beautiful as usual! I think what I like most about this quilt is the little coloured square you've put in the white boxes. They balance it beautifully.
    Have fun at the fair :-)

  16. Oh, gorgeous! I love the positive/negative space thing you have going on. And the white makes it look so fresh and light, in spite of the richness of the colours.
