    Just finished a DP9 with a bunch of patriotic fat quarters I had. Quilted it on the machine with just loops and stars. The squares that look solid actually are small star prints.

    Thanks for looking :D

    Beautiful quilt. Makes me want to start a July 4th quilt even though I have a brand new one waiting to be picnic'd on.

    I like it. Very patriotic, without the usual stars and stripes look to it.

    Thanks, Quilt4U, ai731!

    Beachlady and nursesews - it is a simple pattern, goes together really quick - you should try it!

    SharonC - I've been wanting to make a patriotic quilt and the dp9 was perfect for all the fat quarters I had. Enjoy your picnic!

    Kyia, amma, and Pam - thanks!! :D

    LisaT - thanks for saying that! That's sweet!

    littlehud, sewnsewer2, terri, mytwopals - Thanks! :D

    nativetexan - really it's an easy quilt!

    RoseMarie - thanks, I had some strips left over from the nine patches and used them.

    debbie1 and janstar - thanks and yes, I'm keeping this one :D

    This turned out really nice as a D9P. Good job.

    I love your quilt. Just a question did you do just a two color 9 patch
    for the initial blocks and then mix and match the cut apart pieces?
    Good job!

    Thank you Loretta, Charlie2, Bev, and Mrs Mel! :D

    Sewlady31 - I used 8 different fat quarters. I cut them into 5" strips and 5" strips of the background fabric - making each into a 9 patch. Each nine patch was just the background fabric and one of the fat quarter colors.

    I followed gcathie's instructions that she posted for her DP9 - if you go to page 3 of the following link, you'll see how easy it is to do!

    Good luck!!
