First Friday Finish of 2014

This is a quilt of firsts.  My first disappearing 9 patch.  It was my first quilt done completely free hand on my longarm.  It was my first time using Poly Quilter which is a #30 poly 3 ply thread on the top with Bottom Line in the bobbin.  It was an experiment of sorts with low volume and color.   I used 2 charm packs of Eat Your Fruits and Veggies with 8 low volume fat quarters.   Not so sure I love the end result but I think it will make a great picnic quilt.  Really enjoyed the process but totally obsessed with the block placement until I drove myself crazy!  I finally just stopped myself and got it sewn together.

Not completely done as it needs to be trimmed with binding sewn on but getting close!

Linking up now with Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.


  1. I'm not that in love with disappearing ninepatch blocks, but this one was so cute. I think it's the way you use the colours. I have to give it another try soon.

  2. I like the use of the brights with the low volume prints. It will be a fun picnic quilt.
