Good Folks Disappearing Nine Patch


Finally she is done! I started this quilt waaaaay back in September and just finished the hand binding last Friday. It was originally intended for a friend's wedding gift but I was talked out of that idea. I am actually glad because now I love it and it looks pretty good on our new sofa.

We have been enjoying some beautiful, sunny weather up here in Seattle so I took this quilt down to our neighborhood park for a photo shoot. I love the little crocuses in the background. We usually get a little flirt of spring here this time of year, but by the time March is in full swing the weather turns downright nasty again. So we take full advantage of the sun while we can!



This is the first quilt I have done on my new Bernina QE440. I chose a little swirly design to compliment the squarish angles of the pattern and used a mauvish/wine colored thread by Mettler that looks great with both the cool and warm colors of the Good Folks prints. It was so much fun to use the BSR stitch regulator but I clearly need TONS of practice to get it right. 
The disappearing nine patch is a fun pattern, and if you are looking for a good tutorial, I used the one from P.S. I Quilt, found here .



I just did a simple pieced patchwork out of leftover scraps with the Filigree print in plum for the back.


I think this will make a great picnic blanket!

  13. Thanks so much everyone! Elizabeth - I can't access your profile, but if you get follow up comments, I would tell you this is definitely a great pattern for beginners (which I still consider myself!) although there are corners to match up!
