    my 9 patch weave quilt top

    after seeing a picture of a 9 patch weave blue and brown quilt in one of my books (lots of scraps, its time to quilt) i wanted to make that quilt. here is my finished quilt top.

    i would love to have some ideas from my qb friends on quilting patterns. i have a hv mega quilter. i have only quilted a log cabin quilt on it. we are on temporary assignment in va (i pieced the quilt together in our 5th wheel) i won't be quilting until we get back home after christmas, but i have no idea how to quilt this. thanks for any ideas.

    It is a Wonderful quilt! Stitching in the ditch around each piece just came to mind...good luck on deciding and have fun quilting it. Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful quilt, lovely colors. Since the lines of the quilt are all straight, I'd quilt with curves after perhaps doing some ditch quilting to stabilize.

    I was going to ask you where to find the pattern. Once I realized how it broke down I pulled out my graph paper and colored pencils. This will be another one on my bucket list. I think I'd do a SID.

    Beautiful and love your color choices! Personally, I would look for a large swirly design. Or maybe a Baptist fan?

    thanks so much for all the comments and suggestions. i have another question...i have left over fabric from the quilt top; would it look too busy to piece together these fabrics for the backing (large piecings)?

    brenda, the pattern is a nine patch weave and it came from the book Lots of Scraps, It's Time to Quilt.
