    I took a class for this one. You select your border (focus) fabric first then pull alot of different fabrics to coordiante/compliment(1/4yd) each - cut into 6" squares. After stitching, cutting, pressing, stitching, cutting and pressing again, you wind up with two different 9 patch blocks. After many many block sewn together, you wind up with a great scrappy looking 9 patch quilt. I even had a few left over to make a baby quilt. The queen sized quilt pictured I gave to a friend for a house warming gift, she loved it.[b]

    My kind of quilt! When I first opened the page I was thinking, 'hum how to make a three hour quilt?'. One look told me I was dead wrong. It's beautiful Vicky; did you take a picture of the baby quilt as well?

    Thank you all... I did "borrow" the quilt back to enter it in a show, my first. Didn't place, but it was alot of fun to go through the process. My friend's name is Linda and my DH suggested I name the quilt "LINDA" which is spanish for "beautiful". I thought that was very sweet of him. I know it looks like alot of small pieces, but with the 6 to 9 technique it is as easy as making nine patches from two 6" bocks over and over again. This method may have other names, but the class I took was called 6 to 9. Sorry, I don't have a photo of the baby quilt :(

    That's just gorgeous, love the colours you used. What a lucky friend you have!

    Would love to know how to do the 6 to 9 thing. Will go and google it now, I think!!

    Lovely work (and your DH sounds lovely too!)

    I found printed directions for this technique at http://www.getcreativeshow.com/seminars/nifty_nine_patch.htm. It is much easier if you have a diagram (at least for me it is) but once you make one set, it's like chain piecing after that. Hope this helps...
