Wedding Quilt- FINISHED!

How do you like the quilt?  It’s finished!!  I love it.  It’s simple.  It’s easy and believe it or not, it’s a disappearing nine patch.

I made this for a wedding quilt.  I don’t the taste of the couple.  I don’t know their color scheme so this is a type of what I think is a happy medium.  Wouldn’t you say?  I always figure, if nothing else, they can use it as a car blanket for the winter.

This is made mostly of an old Moda fabric line called Tranquility.  It was one of the first precuts that Kelli and I ever bought.  We loved this line and made several quilts from it.

I remember thinking I was so cleaver that I thought of the idea of using the disappearing nine patch techinique to make a sashed quilt.

I’ve never been a big fan of sewing sashing.

It was a windy day while I was taking pictures.  The wind came in and just like that in rolled into and hotdog shape.

Ruby was pretty distracted today and didn’t want to look at the camera.

This quilt came to me partially pieced.  It was in a bag of stuff that Kelli no longer wanted.  I called her and asked if she was sure that she didn’t want it.  She said no.  Then we talked and neither of us were sure which one of us sewed this to start with.  I think I had sewn it and then she was going to take it home and finish it up and didn’t.  If you want to read about how I got the UFO put together you can read about it here.

After hunting a lot and piecing a little I had a quilt top.

Here it is all ready to be gifted.  With the borders it turned out to be a nice single sized quilt.

We did write a tutorial that explains how to make the quilt.  You can find it here.

We did make other version of the quilt.  Here is the same fabric line only no borders.  Here is an  Iowa Hawkeyes Version..

Today we’re hooking up with  Confessions of a Fabric Addict,and Crazy Mom Quilts.

    Well how do you like that? I never thought of a disappearing 9 patch as a sashed quilt and I have made many. Learn something every day. Your FINISHED quilt is wonderful.

    Beautiful quilt! I love the colors. Ditto the comment about blue skies and autumn trees. I noticed you tied it up with red ribbon. Do be aware of possible bleeding from the ribbon. Don’t ask me how I know this!!!

    I love sashings – it seems to break up the squares and I like your use of the simple cornerstones. It is hard for me to imagine someone who wouldn’t love a quilt of that beauty and expertise.

    I doubt very much that this beauty is going to be relegated to car blanket status. You make me chuckle with your “hotdog” quilt comment, and that the origins of the UFO ended up forgotten and confused. I’ve had projects uncompleted long enough to lose the finer details of their origin too. The quilting is lovely, and I think your pattern and fabric choices are good ones to be appreciated by people with a variety of tastes. The idea of using disappearing nine patch to make this is really clever.
