    D9P finished

    I made this Disappearing 9 Patch for my daughter. She likes turquoise and brown and skunks. She got attached to skunks as a young teen when one night she woke up and one was standing on her chest and looking at her nose to nose. She was sleeping outside. She has loved skunks ever since. The first 2 are the front and the second 2 are the back.

    Dunngriffith, I love this quilt. And the story (about the skunk) behind the quilt is precious. I bet she was surprised to see that furry animal. I hope it didn't spray!! Thanks for sharing.

    Really cute. I bet she wouldn't like skunks so much if she'd been sprayed.

    Wait! You can't tell that much of a story and not give us the ending......how she got away without the ultimate consequence, LOL!!

    The quilt is cute by the way.

    What a great quilt! Is it hard to get the skunks all going the same direction?

    She just stayed very still and the skunk went away! No spray. knlsmith, When you cut the 9 patch into four pieces switch places with the upper right and the lower left. The skunks all stay correct. It was a quick quilt. One that will bring good memories to a lovely daughter. She is now 35. Her husband says that when they first got married- if he knew what direction she would be traveling he would go in advance and remove any skunks from the road that had been hit. Otherwise she would be very upset when she saw the dead skunk.

    I love the quilt and I like the story that goes with even better. She is so blessed to find a husband that is so caring he will go remove dead skunks from her route.

    Sew cute! It always makes an impression when a wild animal comes very close and doesn't appear afraid or anything. It is almost a compliment. The story behind this quilt is awesome. The quilt is darling. Great work!

    Love the quilt, love the story - love the nose-to-nose image, I understand that if they have been de-scented, they make great pets ... but maybe you'd better not tell her that, or you'll have a furgrandbaby of a different stripe!
