Finished top


Yesterday I finished my nine patch quilt top.
The quilt has a spring feeling to it. I didn't have to buy any fabrics for this top. It is made from fabrics I had in my fabric closet.

I loved to dig through my stash for the soft and light colors. The border is begging for a feather quilt pattern don't you think?
I am looking forward to hand quilting this quilt.

Lucy, this is beautiful! How wonderful that you were able to use your stash for this project. The triangles in the border really add to the charm.

Lucy,
Love the way you pieced the border. It really enhances the nine-patch blocks.

Bunty said...

It's really beautiful, very fresh and delicate looking. I love nine patch blocks. I would love to try this on a smaller scale sometime.

Lovely quilt, such a soft look. I think feathers would be a great way to quilt the borders. Congrats on using your stash for this one.

Leuke quilt. En lapjes gebruiken uit voorraad geeft altijd zo'n goed gevoel.

So pretty Lucy - the simplest designs are often the most effective and i love the fabric you've used for the large squares

Leeanne said...

There is something really nice about nine patch quilts, but this tops the list, yes to the feather border!

Ann said...

Beautiful Lucy, I just love the simple fresh colours and the red check/blue border/background is stunning! Just Gorgeous!!

The stitchery on my header is Rose Quaker by Stickideen von der Wiehenberg . I am using Vintage Mocha linen 32ct and the recommended DMC threads, it is a very nice pattern and thank you for your compliment. Ann

Wat een mooie toch maar weer. Vind je border met die drie hoekjes gewoon te gek. Ben heel benieuwd hoe je de blauwe tussen blokken gaat quilten, de nine blokjes vast diagonaal {vind ik persoonlijk altijd het mooist}
Fijne zondag en veel fietsplezier met dit mooie weer.

Groetjes,
Marga♥

Very fresh and pretty. I really like your choice of red gingham points around the border!

I happened upon your blog through the "view next blog" button tonight and your photographs took my breath away! You not only do lovely work but you have an eye for beauty!! Just wanted to say, lovely blog!

The triangles on the border turn a simple quilt into something very special.

Hen said...

This is really beautiful. Enjoy your hand quilting.

There's nothing like a great nine patch quilt. I LOVE yours. It is so different. I recognize the plain block fabric. I sold bolts and bolts of it at my shoppe by Minnick and Simpson. I never would have put it with this and yet...it is what makes the quilt. I love how we learn from others and grow in our own quilting process! Awesome job!

David said...

All your quilts have a special charm in them... A bitlike what you feel when you see an antique quilt. I agree with you... it needs to be hand-quilted. The choice of the sawtooth border makes it very unique. As always, it is very inspiring.

Sandra said...

Your quilt is lovely! I love the soft print fabric you chose for the alternating blocks and the triangles in the border. Beautiful job!

Valentina said...

Just beautiful, Lucy: Timeless! There is nothing like a nine-patch, :) I just finished a 36-patch and totally recognize that yearning for hand-quilting it! Enjoy en veel geluk! :)

Marisa said...

9 patch: Simple but perfect. Nice job here. Very pretty.

Nyla said...

Lucy, I absolutely love your nine patch quilt! Very inspirational. Thanks for sharing it! It will be lovely hand quilted.

I don't know what it is about this quilt that keeps me coming back to look at it. It is quite simple in construction and I normally like much more complicated things but it speaks to my heart. It is just so peaceful and feminine. Thanks for sharing.
