A Great Stash Quilt!

I am loving this quilt! 25 blocks are done, 5 more to go and those 5 are almost finished but I just ran out of steam and can’t finish them tonight.

The quilt is going to be about 81″ x 96″ and without borders, according to my preliminary calculations, it’s taking about 7 yards of fabric. There are no points to match and because of the extra strips around the nine patches, the pattern is very forgiving! I like it a lot.

The plan is to finish the blocks tomorrow, and try to get the rows joined with the sashing. Friday I hope to put the rows together, add the borders, and quilt it this weekend. But, as we all know, things don’t always go according to my plans.

    Judy, we all know it’s going to be on Chad’s bed Sunday night, along with matching curtains and pillowcases! You are amazing! I don’t know how you do all you do!

    Wow, it is really coming along quickly, and looking lovely, I’m sure Chad will love it!
    What size are those little nine patches?
    I am looking forward to seeing what kind of sashing and borders you are going to add to this!

    It looks like a summer carnival. I really like the design. Great job with the colors too. It all just fits together.

    This one is extra nice, I hope you will post instructions on one of your sites- perhaps even as an HAD quilt.

    Is this the beginning of 9-patch Extravaganza volume 2 ??? Just kidding, I’m always amazed at how much you can get done.

    Darling quilt. But “no points to match”? What about all those little 9-patch corners? I guess you’re so expert with 9-patches, yours just turn out matched! Not me, I’m afraid. Chad should be thrilled.
