Number 9 is here! That's baby number 9 for my cousin and his wife! Can you imagine? Anyway, I have been working on Number Nine's quilt for the past few weeks. And now it is finally finished just in time for the baby's arrival this morning! I made this quilt using Vintage Modern Mini Charms from Bonnie and Camille as well as white and red 2 1/2" squares in order to create the Disappearing Nine Patch blocks.
The finished quilt measures 36" X 52." It is squishy perfectness! Well, it's not perfect. Some of my squares didn't match up perfectly, but hey, it's a handmade gift made with love!
I quilted using my free motion foot. This was only the second time I have done this, but I find it kind of relaxing. Once you get into a "groove," it's fun and easy!
Number 9 has been the most intricate and detailed quilt I've completed thus far. It was frustrating at times, but I am proud of myself for designing the quilt and figuring out all the MATH involved in order to calculate how much fabric I needed as well as how to actually construct the blocks. Considering this is literally the NINTH quilt I've made, I think I'm doing alright!
Congratulations to Matt and Stephanie! You are great people and great parents! Best wishes to you and your family, including little Number 9!
