Perfect 9 Patch

AmysCreativeSide

I am entering my Perfect 9 Patch quilt into the hand quilted category at the online Bloggers Quilt Festival 2016.  This is her in all her hand-quilted beauty.

I made the curves in this quilt using the Quick Curve Ruler.   It’s an amazing addition to your ruler collection…if like me, you cannot get enough new gadgets.  And I also based the design on a pattern from  Sew Kind of Wonderful  called Urban 9 Patch.  Click here to see all kinds of other variations of this pattern. Its such a cool “old school” block, but presented in a new modern way.  Yay….these are a few of my favourite things.

This quilt was pieced totally using only fabric already in my cupboard…pinky swear ….I didn’t buy a single piece of new fabric specifically for this project.  That, my friends, was the biggest challenge I faced the whole time this beauty was coming together.
Here are some close ups of the hand quilting details.  Please excuse my poor camera skills.


Here on PEI, Canada, this lap quilt is a prize winner.  She won a first prize red ribbon at the Provincial Exhibition in August this year.

I hope you like her as much as I do!

    What a beautiful quilt! I love 9-patches and especially this version. I have a QCR but haven’t had time to use it yet. I think I’ll try something like yours. BTW I voted for your quilt!

  12. I bought the quick curve ruler a couple of years ago but haven’t had the courage to use it yet. I’m going to have to take the bull by the horns and have a go. Thanks for the inspiration x
