    This has been a while in the making. The top was part of the 9-patch project we did on here last summer. I finally got the quilting and binding done last week. It will be on its' way to Victoria, BC tomorrow. It is for my 91 year old mom. She is getting quite frail, and I thought she might appreciate a little extra warmth across her lap. It's small enough that she could fold it and take it with her in the basket of her walker if she chose to.

    Thanks for looking. :)

    I love your 9-patch. I think your Mom will too. I, too, like the use of the fabrics in the border.

    Thank you all for such wonderful feedback!!! If anyone was in on the 1 1/2" swaps, you may see some of your fabrics in the border. The patches were all from my scraps, the border all from swap squares. I even used up some left-over binding pieces to make a scrappy binding. It really was fun.

    Patti ~ It is beautiful from all perspectives! First of all, I just LOVE scrappy quilts and I think this one is exceptionally pretty. But there is a beauty to your quilt that goes much deeper than what we see and that is the fact that your 91 year old mom will be so touched by the love you put into making it for her...... I am sure it will warm her heart as much as her body.
