A nine patch quilt

I have always wanted to make a Nine patch quilt. A while back I started making blocks with yellow and red centres from all the scraps I gather, made a few blocks too. Its a long term project that will slowly come up when the other projects are done and scraps remain.

A friend had made a hand sewn quilt top similar to the one I had in mind and sent it over to quilt. I jumped at the opportunity. Just see how beautiful it looks. I may not have added the multiple borders into mine but totally happy with this one and the opportunity it brought forward.

The entire quilt has stitch in the ditch and so it doesn’t interfere with the blocks and the blank white blocks have feathers, much needed practise. I hadnt ever tried it before so practised a few times and got onto the quilt. Happy with the outcome.

The backing fabric is a large cotton bedsheet that the friend had sent me so it turned out well.
