    Do You Know if There is A Pattern For This Quilt?? I Love This Quilt.

    I somehow stumbled onto this image on the webpage and I am in love with this quilt. I love how the 9 patches on point border the quilt. Has anyone seen this in a pattern before? I would need pattern help to make the "on point 9 patches" work out in length with the rest of the quilt.

    From the pictures, it looks like it was just the 9patch on point, surrounded by 4 corner triangles (as opposed to using white setting triangles.)
    Basically, a square in a square (the inner square being the 9 patch, which is the same size as the blocks in the quilt).


    The key here is that red inner border, which is sized to make the border blocks fit exactly around the whole quilt.

    Nicely done.
    And in 1935, no less.

    Assuming the 9-patches are 3" FINISHED, then the border square-in-a-square blocks would be 4.25" FINISHED.

    (FINISHED size x 1.414" to get the FINISHED on-point width of a block)

    The inner border width is 2.25" FINISHED.

    Using those measurements, the quilt top would be ~ 85"x103" when fully assembled.

    Looks like an Irish Chain quilt bordered by a plain 1st border then 9 patches on point. Missouri Star Quilt Co. has a YouTube tute on how to make an Irish Chain quilt.

    Wow, MTS, you have a very sharp quilter's mind. Thanks. I am working on an Ohmigosh quilt and this little 9 patch quilt looks like a much smaller headache. I am going to have left a good portion of my 54 different fat quarters so I may do this quilt sometime in the future.

    Only 54 fabrics?

    That Ohmigosh quilt is quite an undertaking.
    I've seen if before but I didn't realize it was a Sue Garmen design.
    She's so talented - an amazing designer.
    Her BOM's for The Quilt Show were gorgeous.

    Good luck with both quilts.
