Eighth Quilt Finish for 2011

A quick post today to show my latest quilting adventures -- one finish and significant progress on another.

I'm so glad to have this quilt finished -- since this one's for me!  I knew I had to make it when I saw the pattern name ("Nancy's Nine Patch").

But it was the colors, use of black (which I love in quilts) and the simple, yet gorgeous borders that won me over.  And not only do I love 9-patch blocks, I love to sew square-in-square blocks -- and this design was the best of both worlds.

And here's what I've been working on over the past week. I received the pattern and fabrics as a block of the month last year -- but had only worked on one block.

I've now finished the main blocks -- but now need to do the borders and applique. Here's a link to the original design from Primitive Pieces by Lynda.

It continues to rain in Utah -- and I thought I lived in the desert!  I hope everyone has a great day. Thanks for stopping by.

I do love your quilt!! Congrats on such a great finish. I think that black in a quilt adds so much to it. Makes the other colors pop. Love your basket quilt too.

The nine patch is so cute. I love the basket quilt. Can't wait to see it finished. I really the like the color choices in both. My kids told me it snowed on them at the Bountiful Temple the other day. We are just watching the river (Mississippi) here in Baton Rouge.

Your basket quilt is delightful! I absolutely LOVE everything that Lynda Hall has ever designed!
