Disappearing 9 patch on a double bed with pillow tuck. That bottom edge was slightly off so I eased the fabric in to get the top to square up - once I spray it with water those little puckers will disappear. You really want to rein your borders in so you don't have an uneven quilt.
On the floor - ignore the wrinkles!
And a close-up of the fabrics!
I made the top in 2010, but just bought the border/binding fabrics for it this spring. The binding is the same light purple as the inner fabric. My original blog post, including how I did it can be found here... way back in 2010!
It feels good to have this one ready for quilting. As you can see by the photo - it is not quite big enough for a double bed because the overhang would be too short, but it is the perfect size for a couch snuggle quilt and long enough to cover your feet. I am actually thinking of backing this one in minke, but I am not entirely sure! Has anyone else tried that? And how did it work out for you?
I heard on the radio today that we are 6 months away to Christmas! So, in that spirit - here are some links to ornament kits! I like to put little Christmas ornaments or something on the outside of my presents as part of the tag. When I was little, one of my sister's did the most amazing wrapping jobs - I loved the little pressies on the outside of the gift I think as much as I liked the gift itself. Anyway, I like these kits a lot - kits are so convenient because everything you need is usually in the package. I think these would make a fun, little summer project. Yup, I just might have to order a kit myself... you know... as a reward for finishing my Disappearing 9 Patch!
