I'm not good at piecing or patchwork as one might call it, which is why I stick with the art quilts. I am just not precise and I don't like to follow the rules. I know my strengths and weaknesses and roll with it.
With that being said sometimes I get the urge to make a nice comfy pieced quilt so when I saw the disappearing 9 patch on quilt cabana's blog, I just had to try it.
It looks quick and fairly easy and since I was going to my moms for thanksgiving I figured I could make my own charm squares from her huge (and I mean HUGE!) stash.
here is the finished 25" by 30" quilt with stipple quilting
I'm thinking a special dog might like this, its to small for a human, not sure what to do with it yet . right now I'm just enjoying the feel of it, the close stipple makes it oh so nice!
I have squares cut out for a couple more, hopefully soon.
now on to my WIP
trying to find the right hands to fit the background or
visa versa (does anyone say that anymore)?
these (above)seem to white
so I went with these, at least they go with the blue background
look when I quilted them though, makes the hands look ice cold
maybe I should come up with some catchy name for this odd quilt.
