A year or so ago, I headed north to Cresco, Iowa and visited the quilt gild there. I brought some quilts for a trunk show and came back later to teach class. One of the quilts I brought was Nine in the Middle.
If you’re looking for the pattern you can find it in Bonnie Hunter’s book, Adventures with Leaders & Enders: Make More Quilts in Less Time! It’s a bunch of scrappy goodness!!
After the trunk show, Joyce one of the gals attending decided to make this quilt too. Just the other day, she send me a photo of her completed version.
WOW!! I love it.
I make so many quilts. I end up giving many away. My sister in law was visiting a few weeks ago and I told her to just pick a quilt and take it home. I was really careful to make sure that this quilt didn’t get into the pile of quilts she could choose from. I just love it..love it LOTS!!
What is really funny is that I went home from the event in Cresco and was really inspired to make the quilt Joyce showed…it is Bowdacious. The pattern for this quilt can be found in the same book.
Of course, other projects have gotten in my way, but I still have Joyce’s quilt in my mind and one day, I really really think I am going to cut some pieces and start on this quilt. It really would make a great leader and ender project…
Let’s just say I have a case of “quilt envy” over Joyce’s Bowdacious.
If you’re interested, you can see more of my Nine in the Middle quilt here. Do you have “quilt envy” over a quilt???
