. . .on a dreary February day.
This is my first attempt at a disappearing nine patch which I worked on over the weekend (in addition to free-motion quilting another blanket and binding a third blanket). I used 36 squares from a Moda Central Park charm pack. It's much busier than anything I've ever made before, but I think it will make an adorable little baby blanket/play mat. Not that I have any need for a girly baby blanket, but I couldn't resist the bright, happy fabrics. I think I'll end up using it as a center panel, and this will be the first square blanket I've made. I've decided when it comes to quilt-making, I really enjoy picking out the fabrics and piecing them together which is why I have 5 quilt tops and 0 quilts. The quilting part I don't enjoy so much--probably because it takes me so long! I don't even mind hand stitching the binding. So what is your favorite/least favorite part of the quilt-making process?
Adorable quilt top! I think I've fallen in love with the disappearing 9-patch of late and it looks fabulous here. :)ReplyDelete
And to answer the question...erm... I probably dislike binding the most. Because getting the corners right gives me fits every single time.
