friday finish

Here it is!!
Another friday sew and tell for amy.
A disappearing 9 patch without a turquoise border.

You won't believe this, but I actually went shopping for fabric!
Or maybe you WOULD believe me!
I journeyed to the local fabric shop and couldn't find
ONE
piece of fabric that really WENT with this quilt.
But, YOU all know that I didn't leave that store
empty handed!!


I decided that since most of the fabric was old,
that muslin border fits the quilt MUCH better
than any of the NEW fabric I was seeing at the shop.


A new quilt pose!
Right under the flower garden!
So PRETTY!
Maybe we'll name it cotton candy.
Naming these quilts is not my FAVORITE activity,
so my daughter gave me some help this time. :)

  2. I really like the soft tones of these fabrics! Sort of soft and cuddly. The muslin is perfect for the border. And, I'm beginning to like that Disappearing 9-patch a lot!

  8. A great finish! This is so pretty and I like the name cotton candy. In the last photo you can see a 3 dimentional element to the pattern.

  12. This is so pretty!!! I think you made a great decision to go with the muslin. Love the name. I have a hard time naming quilts as well. I love the disappearing 9 patch pattern. I might need to make one of these myself. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Lovely. The pattern adds so much interest to the quilt. Don't forget to let us see it when you've got it quilted.

  14. When in doubt (which I usually am) white muslin is the answer! Although, I also love the unbleached muslin just as much! Great job!!

  15. How pretty, Beth! The muslin makes a perfect border; I can imagine the soft colours of the vintage fabrics are hard to match.
