    Here's the second of seven quilt tops that I'm currently quilting for a customer. It is of course the simple nine-patch, but I think the piecer did an excellent job in color selection for this one. The top was pieced decades ago by the customer's grandmother and it measures 58" x 72". Sometimes simple patterns make the most striking quilts.

    It's a gorgeous quilt! Must be pretty scary to do quilting on somebodys treasured family quilt! Clearly she trusts your not inconsiderable talents!

    thanks for sharing - you gave me an idea. I have some 9 patch blocks somewhere ~ seeing the wide sashing & corner blocks on this quilt makes me want to dig for them & finish this UFO

    I agree with you, I think sometimes the simpler the prettier. We get so caught up trying to get just the right fabric and color we forget to enjoy

    Very pretty! :thumbup: I love the older tops and fabrics. I like the simpler patterns too. There is just something about them that makes them special.

    Beautiful quilt. I just made a twin size for my DGD and now she wants me to make a quilt for her boyfriend. Hers was shades of yellow mostly with cabbage roses in some blocks, I hand quilted it and it came out so pretty, I used white in between the blocks and also a soft sage qreen for half of the blocks. She loves it...the look is so old fashioned. but it was what she wanted....I quilted a heart the size of the clover yo yo heart pattern into the blocks that only had stitching in ditch..and I did add a running line of tiny yo yos down one line. she loves yo yos. she is 21. there is hope for her generation. she doesn't sew, but loves the look of homemade...

    I agree, simple patterns like the nine patch are so versatile and with good color combination can make such striking quilts. This one is a beauty.

    She had a good color sense, using that buttery yellow to tie the quilt together! Beautiful !!! Your quilting looks great as usual. :thumbup: :D
