    Simple 9 patch scrappy--much better than I thought it would be

    I finished this one last week--made the top mostly in 2011--have a pile of tops to finish. Since this is my 5th FMQ, I'm very pleased with how it turned out. Just did a meandering stitch of some kind--but I'm pleased with it.

    It's such a simple pattern--design is really nonexistent--just another effort to use up my huge piles of scraps. I used my 2.5" strips for this one.

    Great scrap buster! Bet you significantly reduced your scrap pile with this!

    I love these kind of quilts. Did you "meander" over the whole thing? I have a scrappy finished but don't know what I want to do "quilting wise". I sew on my old Singer I bought in 1978.

    Pretty quilt! Love the border fabric.

    I like a simple meander. I like your scrappy quilt. It makes me want to get closer to it and examine all of those beautiful fabrics in detail! Great job.

    I love 9 patch....it is such a classic design the multi fabrics/colors are wonderful. The fabric for the borders is perfect and sets the tone for the whole quilt. Love it!♥

    Beautiful quilt, I do most all my quilts with a large stipple or meander. I made 8 scrappy quilts so far this year and I plan to do more. I made 4 not scrappy quilts and scraps are piling up again. I think it is impossible to use up all scraps.

    Oh my, this is beautiful! Do you mind sharing the size of the nine patches? I think you made two at a time, which is one of my favorite methods (one positive and one negative block). I've used scrappy nine patches with alternating plain blocks, but prefer your composition. Thank you so much for sharing!!!!!!!! :-)

    Well ---- all I can say was that I was so excited when I saw your quilt, that I skipped reading about the 2.5 inch strips. Now, I've got that in the memory bank along with the sashing. Your two borders set off the floral border to the max. :-)

    Very pretty 9-patch. Makes me think I need to do one myself.
