    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.

    I agree, looks like the simplest Irish Chain, which is just a 9 patch with the four corners and the center in colors. Can't get much easier.

    Right, it's a single Irish Chain. There's a cool video on how to make one on Youtube done by Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilting Company. I'm making a baby quilt for a co-working in the Irish Chain Pattern. Fun and simple.

    If that was the ONLY version of the block you made, you wouldn't get the same design as Elizabeth's lovely quilt.

    this is probably one of the situations where EQ7 would be better, but this one i designed in my EQ5. the quilt is 66x66 with borders of 1.5, 3, and 1.5. i cannot get the measurements for the patches of the 9p on point [i could probably do that with graph paper as the 9p's are 3" diagonally]. the inner blocks are 3".

    Sorry, GrannieAnnie, I read your post, incorrectly, as referring to the Irish Chain block (the larger double(?) 9-patch block ), and not the single 9-patch.

    (Only because that's the way I would construct it.)

    My bad.

    On your version, the 9-patches blocks used in the border would FINISH at 2-1/8, not a really fun size (17/8) to divide by 3.

    3 / 1.414 = 2.122 ...round up to 2.125"

    The beauty of Elizabeth's quilt is that the inner and outer 9-patches are the same size.

    The quote, from Elizabeth Ryan DeCoursey's book, is from 1935...the quilt, made by the blogger's mother, is new.

    Ah, so it is.

    since you are so good at the math, how wide does the on point border have to be to make the 9p's the same size as the inner section, 3" ?

    Answered upthread.

    If the inner 9-patches are 3" FINISHED, the S-in-a-S in the outside border, in conjunction with a correctly-sized inner border (to make it all flow smoothly), would be 4.25" FINISHED

    3 x 1.414 = 4.24 , rounded up to 4.25" (and that rounding will cause a minimal amount of easing when attaching the borders)


    The 1.414 is just another of those frequently used numbers (like the 7/8" and 1.25") that is helpful to know., especially when dealing with on-point calculations (either way).
    Just make sure you always start with the FINISHED size of the block.

    Or if you REALLY hate math, use the chart for diagonals of a square.

    I am not sure that I would do the border on point. Why not sew a right triangle on opposite sides of your nine patch? One of the right angles would go at the top and the other one on the bottom. Then you could sew those units together on the diagonal. I would cut the right triangles with the long side on the straight of grain to avoid the edges stretching out of shape.
