On to the last quilt of my 7 day challenge. This is one that you have probably seen here before, but it's been awhile. It hung in my local quilt shop for a long time (thank the good Lord that I had it back before they had a fire!). This is the quilt that always attracts the most attention in my booth when I'm vending. And it is the quilt that is the hardest to get a good picture of! The 9 patch blocks finish at 1 1/2" and it is super scrappy. I love scrap quilts, but I like controlled scrappy. On this one I just decided that the blocks and colors were going to land where they land - no control - just grab a block and sew! And guess what? I won't do that again - lol! There is a spot in the quilt that just drives me crazy, but I'm not going to tell you what it is - you can guess if you want - and I will tell you if you are correct! It really is square (or close to it) but looks funny hanging there because it's been folded up in my "show stuff".
Here are a few closeups,..
And a little closer...
I know I've mentioned my friend Nancy, who lives in California. We sew together via Skype a lot and she has been here to visit a few times. She is so fun and way too generous, and I was trying to think of what to give her for Christmas, when the idea popped in my head that I should make her a miniature version of this quilt! I don't think that I took a picture of it before I sent it to her, but she posted it on her 7th day of 7 quilts on Instagram - which is why I decided to post mine on my 7th day of quilts.
That's the end of my quilt show for now! I hope to continue to post here more often, but we will see! Thanks for visiting!
