Scrappy D9P Finished!

This is a Disappearing Nine-Patch pattern in a very random and scrappy layout.  Out of the 441 squares needed to start the quilt, only a few are repeated and used more than once.  The way this pattern goes together, the fabrics repeat in some places but only 4 times for 49 fabrics.  Otherwise, nearly all the fabrics are different.

Pieced, quilted, binding on, and washed.

Gold variegated King Tut thread by Superior Threads.  LEL done
With all the squares and rectangles on the piecing, I quilted circles with hooked feathers randomly as I went along the quilt.  Then I filled in the other areas with loops and spirals.

One circle has a script L for the customer.  I don’t know if she’s found that yet!

finished

Around the Block with a Splash

This quilt is a special order for her MIL for Christmas.

01

Her suggestions were: greens, browns, nature-y, with a splash of red.  I used a purchased pattern that I altered for the splash of red and love this so much I have 2 more planned in other colors to sell.

A special label with all the family names.

Close-up of the quilting.  I just played with the machine and had leaves, feathers, and vine/swirls for the quilting.
