Fabric Chosen

Kinda!  I’m going to make a top using the Piggy Pirouette and one using the big floral and then let you vote on which one I finish for the little girl.  One of the Piggy Pirouette fat quarters was this:

Oh, how I wish I had enough of that for the border but I don’t!  When I opened that fat quarter, it made me want to use this fabric. With only 10 fat quarters, I was afraid I didn’t have enough variety to make a good Disappearing Nine Patch (DNP) so  I added 3 pieces from my stash, cut the squares 6″ and this is what I have to start with:

This morning I had a binding project to finish up.  Was hoping to get it done in time for Vince to take to the UPS guy but I didn’t so it will go out tomorrow. Now I’m going to start making nine patches.

Have you made a Disappearing Nine Patch?  There’s a great tutorial here.  Of all the sewing, teaching, designing . . whatever quilt related activity that I do, sewing something that I hope will brighten someone’s day is what I love best of all.

    I agree, that border print would be wonderful for a border. 🙂 Thanks for posting this tutorial. I can never find the one I originally had for this quick.

    read this before the previous one. I like the choices you have made. They will be great. Perhaps you could use the border print as part of the back?

    Judy, if you go to Quiltshops.com and type Piggy Pirouette into the search box you’ll find a few quilt shops that still have some stock. I use this site all the time to locate discontinued fabrics.

    Judy, somehow I got dropped off the DWM Mr. Linky this week. I was somewhere around #28 to link in. I added myself back but wonder what happened. Hope I didn’t mistakenly break a rule 🙁

    I have made a couple DNP and love making them.
    One of my favorite things to do is make quilts for Linus. Since moving to Florida I haven’t found a local group (I haven’t looked real hard) so I send them back to my Alabama group.

    Our group made a D9P a while back. It was so much fun. Really hard to cut up the sewn blocks, but so worth it. Ours had the very narrow white sashing strips which set off our colors perfectly – bright yellows & pinks similar to yours. I passed the tutorial on to my mother’s group and they made several. Your colors are great and it is for such a good cause. The little girl will be in our prayers.

    Judy…..I have a question to ask you privately. Ohhhhhh…..secrets!

    It is about using one of your patterns for a project, just so you won’t think I am a nut or something…………

    glen: I am, but that is beside the point!

    Judy,

    My DD and I just made a quilt top using Eleanor Burns pattern Tossed Nine Patch which is a disappering nine patch. I just love that pattern because it gives the sizes from wallhanging to king. The pattern was an easy one but the completed quilt looks more complicated.

    I always love the fabric choices you come up with.

    Adding prayers for the little girl you are making the quilt for and may you receive many blessing for the good deeds you do.

    I have made two DNP quilts. One was a lap quilt, the other was a quilt for a soldier. It’s such an easy pattern and the results are terrific.
