Today is the big reveal for the Fat Quarter Shop‘s Classic and Vintage Quilt Along on their blog Jolly Jabber, and I was delighted to be able to participate as a quilting blogger. Just click on the Fat Quarter Shop link, and select ‘blog’ on the right side of the blue bar at the top to see it. Now I can finally show you the quilt I have been secretly working on.
Did you guess that these strips became nine patch blocks?
I made a bunch all at once.
Did you peek at the tags to see it is a double nine patch?
For the Fat Quarter Shop’s Classic and Vintage setting, solid white blocks were set between the double nine patches.
Then the rows were placed with alternating setting.
More rows make a flimsy.
A white border to set the nine patches apart from the outer border, then red was added.
I wanted it just a bit bigger for a QOV, so I added a third blue border.
I loaded it on the longarm to quilt, with Warm and Natural batting.
I used a light blue thread to quilt it with a simple, cloud-like pantograph.
Quilting completed, it was trimmed up for binding.
Then, bound in the same color as the border.
This quilt is going to our local Quilts of Valor program, and I’ll be sending it soon. I may want to show it off at a meeting first, LOL!!
