Disappearing 9 Patch
This was one of my 3 goals for the Charming Girls' Quilt Club this month. I made it for my friend's new baby girl, Bradlie. I am proud to say that I completed the top particularly because I errored in my cutting the sashing. I only discovered the problem after all of the sashing was sewn on and things were not lining up correctly. I felt like someone had punched me. I just felt ill that I was going to have to take it all apart when I was so close to the finish line I could see it. I persevered. I ripped all of it off. Re-cut. Re-sewed. And this is what you get when you do that, a beautiful quilt.
Having a bad day yesterday made me want to have a giveaway. Keep checking in the rest of the month because one of these days, I am going to post the giveaway goodies and you don't want to miss out on signing up for the drawing. Makes me smile just thinking about it.
I am off to clean my much neglected house. Seems there are millions of specs of threads floating about.
