Christmas Disappearring Nine Patch

Last Christmas I started (and didn't finish the quilting) on this blanket. I used this tutorial which I absolutely love! I was able to use almost only scraps on it and then I just bought a few random fat quarters to add a little more variety. It's totally scrappy & for some reason that really is my favorite kind of quilt. And I kept this green reindeer fabric as the center square thru the whole blanket. It's so nice to be getting all these blankets & projects out of the closet!!! It's going as a Christmas present to a very sweet family that we all absolutely love. In fact, I just quickly took the photos right after washing it on our way to rush over in the nick of time & deliver it. Nothing like waiting to the last SECOND. Final finished size though was a LOT smaller because of all the cutting & re-sewing, 45x59. Hope they enjoy it! :)
The next project that I've been eyeing is the star quilt along ... maybe I should get to work finishing that now??? Think I'm far enough behind the gang??? LOL.


  1. It's beautiful!! You are soooo inspiring. I love seeing all your projects, except it just makes my "to do" list longer :)

  2. What a beautiful quilt. I, too, love the random patchwork look. It reminds me of days gone by. What a lucky family that you are giving it to.


I love comments! Thanks for sharing! :)
