Well, May is almost over and I am almost done with this month’s quilt. Instead of stopping with just the top, I have bit the bullet and have it in the quilting frame and am machine quilting it. I don’t know the name of this pattern. More stars. I just saw a quilt picture on the internet and like it so decided to make on like it. I used all blues and the background is a Precious Moments toile that I’ve had from my fabric store. Mine turned out very differently than the picture I found because I used all blues and the picture I saw had a contrasting color going through it. Here the photo blog of that.
Here its in the frame:
I have decided that a long arm is the way to go, although short arms can do some stuff. It is getting a little tight now that I am at the end of the quilt. I think I can do it but I wouldn’t be able to do any that’s bigger. Ok now for the big question:
Yesterday I found a partially finished quilt at a second hand store. I had to rescue it. got it home and laid it out:
After looking at the rest of the blocks I’ve decided it is a Disappearing Nine Patch.
Here’s some blocks put together in a 9 patch fashion and cut into 4 pieces.
To make a Disappearing 9 patch you turn 2 pieces around.
Should I finish putting it together as is or take it apart and put it together like the last photo? I’d love to hear what you think.
I will post a picture of May’s Quilt when I have it out of the frame.
