    More to show...9-patch on point


    I made the quilt top in probably 2007 or 2008. I am too lazy to go look up when I made the top. I was not happy with the quilting. I didn't want a lot of heavy quilting...and assumed this looks the way it does because I was quilting on the bias.

    This is the backing...the quilting looks nicer there than on the front. This was finally quilted and bound in May of this year, 2014.

    I just love scrappy quilts. I call it creating fabric. Great job.

    There is nothing wrong with the quilting. This quilt looks comfy and cozy. Besides that, you have created a truly reversible quilt: either side will look fantastic while it is resting on a bed or a sofa.
    Sometimes I try to act "normal," but it gets boring so I just go back to being myself.

    I love the placements of the background fabric that frames the 9 patches. It really makes the simple pattern much more interesting. Great job well done !!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Isn't it great when you get a quilt finally finished, and that's a great scrappy quilt.
