    "More or Less" update.

    Thanks all for your comments and hints! The pattern is a Double Disappearing 9-Patch in the colors chosen by the parents. I managed to get the Prairie Points acceptable and now we'll just wait for baby!

    She's due in January but I can post the picture here as they don't do "the board thing"

    All washed and ready (I don't press after washing).

    can't wrap my brain around a "double disappearing nine patch" like the quilt, how did you slice up your 9 patches? And I never press mine after washing either, I love the crinkled look!

    Very pretty and I agree that prairie points are a real challenge.

    It's a beauty. I never heard of anyone pressing a finished quilt. Mine all have the cuddly, wrinkly look that is loved by 4 generations. Yours will be well-loved, too. Whew! That's a lot of prairie points...wonderful!

    Its a very easy pattern! Give it a try. Its no more difficult than a "regular" DD9P

    I've done that with eight 6" charm squares (no squares alike in the entire quilt), and a yellow center square. After that was cut and spread out, I added a darker yellow center square and white squares on all sides. When I cut up that big block, flipped two of them, and sewed it back together, I ended with a 23" block. Doesn't take many of those to make a quilt. Lots of white space makes it look "Modern", and gives lots of room for some cute quilting. I made mushrooms.
