Double 9 patch and butterfly blocks. A quilt is born!

I’m going to show you this one from the beginning to the almost end. I drafted out a sort of picture of what I wanted to make and figured the dimensions I needed and the number of each block. Fast forward. I completed the required number of blocks and put them up on my design board to see if there were any shocking mistakes. Then I joined the diagonal rows together. . . it’s starting to take some shape. Half the quilt is joined together. It’s starting to look like something! Now I’ve joined the rows together and added the setting triangles along the edges. custodia iphone 6 marvel I’m really liking this now. custodia iphone con orecchie I was a little unsure up to this point. Now, after much deliberation, a border goes on. custodia iphone 8 plus subacquea . cover disney iphone 6 frozen a custodia .Oh, did you want to see the back side? I split open all the four patches and 9 patches to make everything flatter. This is the “before” the final press. There was a substantial amount of fraying going on, but that is to be expected with homespuns. And here it is quilted. I LOVE it! It is king sized, so it will take me about 4-5 hours to bind it, machine sewn on front, hand sewn on the back. I did a free motion stipple with occasional loops. It suits the busyness of the top perfectly.

      Thanks for the compliment. I had to enter it in the “professional” division, so I think the competition will be pretty tough. We’ll see. . .

    Holy smokes, that looks like a lot of work! I was going to say… “did mom just whip this up from scratch since her last post? She’s on fire!!” But then you said it’s been 2-3 years. Whew. I imagined your fingers smoking a little from the super speed. 🙂 Nothing like a deadline to kick things into high gear. I’m your daughter, for sure!

      You make me laugh! I think there was a little smoke coming off my fingers because I worked on it 20 hours in this last week. I had blocks to complete, and then sew together and get setting triangles. What a rewarding project it was though.

    Again my hat goes off to you…great job! I did not enter the fair this year. I will be on our summer schedule here at work next soon…off on Friday’s. We have to schedule a couple of sew days this summer. I have the second to last border on the mystery quilt done. I got side tracked and completed a graduation quilt, hope to load on the Gammill this evening.

      Thanks! I actually thought I had another week to work on it, so I’m glad I found out otherwise or I would have been really unhappy. A graduation quilt? I’m not surprised!
