I saw a picture of this triple 9 patch in Country Quilts mag from earlier this year. The article was about favorite country quilt patterns and caught my eye as something I would like to reproduce (no pattern but hey that makes it all the more fun!). I really enjoy learning about the history of quilts and the caption with this quilt described how indigo blue was often used as the dye was easy to get.
My quilt is king sized, just the top for now. Any suggestions on quilting designs? I stick to the basis when it comes to quilting - usually stitch in the ditch or just wander an equal distantce with my presser foot - nothing fancy. Besides, I've no idea how I am going to stuff all this fabric into my sewing machine to quilt it! I am considering tying it. Will probably try to stitch in the ditch the patch blocks and tie the center of the blue blocks.
