    Dreaming of Stars

    I made this disappearing nine patch in Americana fabrics for my best friend. Her birthday is coming up at the end of July. I am calling it a recliner quilt. It is just big enough to sit in her favorite chair, cover her toes, and tuck in for those nights when she falls asleep in her chair.

    Oooh... I love that! I love RWB quilts anyway & this one would be a great one to make for a QOV... thanks for the inspiration! I'm sure your friend is going to love dozing off while she's "dreaming of stars"!

    Great D9P! I don't know who originally thought up the idea for turning a boring 9P into a fun and interesting D9P but I'd like to congratulate them. I love the pattern for a quick but beautiful quilt.

    Oh, my goodness, your quilt is fabulous. Your friend is going to shedding a few tears of joy when you give it to her. She is blessed indeed.
