There were times when I wondered whether I would make it to finishing point.
It took 111 nine patch blocks, so with the border pieces it took over 1,000 pieces to complete.
A lot of pinning and piecing was required to finish and I definitely have to do something quite different for my next project.
That said, I am actually very happy with the outcome of the quilt. I like the way the nine patches are captured within a wide floral border.
I had my doubts about how they might look but they seem to blend in with the whole scheme of things and so I am glad I found a use for them.
The pattern for this is free from Fons and Porter and is called Nine Patch Rings.
VERY well done! So cheerful and colorful.
Wow - I love it. The border really frames it! xo jan
Good on you! What a great job.
Is that the end of all those nine patches?
What a mammoth project but it looks lovely. And less than 6 weeks isn't long for a project of this sort...I have things I've been working on for YEARS...
Yep-definitely time for something other than nine patches!
