    Disappearing 9 Patch made with batiks with cornerstones and sashing - a wedding gift

    I made this for my niece and her new husband who live in Canada. She loves purple so I wanted to incorporate that into the quilt. I hate how I have to stand inside the non walk in closet to get a decent face on photo, and I am envious of everyone that has a nice fence or clothes line.
    I meandered on my Viking Husky once again.

    I love D9P. My top favorite pattern. Yours is beautiful. I also have a Vicking Huskivarna! I love it but cannot imagine quilting on it. Unless we have different models...didn't think of that. LoL.

    I have a Sapphire 830 that I bought used from the local dealer - it was to replace an Elna that I got in 2005 which I wasn't able to master FMQ on. My DH said, "I see you struggling, let's go get you a new machine." I got the sewing machine and a huge Horn table with the disappearing hole for the sewing machine

    Taken DP9 to a new level. The fabric is awesome and makes a very happy quilt.

    Your niece and spouse will fight over this! Wonderful use of purple intermingled with a variety of great colors. Beautiful.

    Love that you sashed your D9P. Great color choices and backing fabric. I'm sure the newly weds will love it too. Thanks for sharing.
