    Here's the chemo comfort throw I made for my friend.

    The 9-1/2" sashings were left over from sashings from another quilt. I liked the contrast between the sashing fabric & this fabric. So, I cut main fabric into 9 1/2" squares. There was just enough main fabric to also cornerstone the sashings.

    The back is a V-D9P. Variant D9P. I made it up, you know how it goes, making your fabric "work" for you. I have done a search & havent seen anything like it anywhere. Trying to "work my stash". I had the raspberry and the light one. It is a light dusty purple basket weave print. I liked these two fabrics for the back, but even together, i did not have enough fabric. I realized I had about 8/9ths enough and I could add one more square for an odd man out 9patch. Once I made it, I thought, hmm, kind of plain.

    V-D9P tutorial:

    I like both sides of your quilt and the square in a square quiling was a perfect choice.
