    made for retiring co-worker

    My first picture post. This D9P is one I hated, almost didn't finish it. I am glad I did. I think it may be one of my favorites now that is is completed. It is quilted with a gold thread, and quilted by a local LA quilter. Hope you like it.Name:  Margaret Robison Retirement Photos (22).jpg

    The pattern name is Magic 9 Patch. A square is sewn to each quarter of the 9 patch to make a hst. You will get two blocks out of each 9 patch.

    I love D9P. This is a version new to me and I love it too. Your golds are beautiful. I did a quick search for the pattern in case it's was new to someone else. Hope that's ok. http://ros-the-quilter.blogspot.com/...econd.html?m=1
