9 Patch: First Border Complete!


The first border has been sewn onto my 9 Patch, hand-pieced quilt.  It was a sunny evening, so it had its picture taken outside from the deck.  Ready to begin border number 2!


Making a 9 Patch quilt all by hand is a very portable project that you can take with you in a small lunch-size zip-lock bag.  Check out the very first post about this project, and consider joining the group of quilters working on theirs!  We also have a Facebook Group for this project, which you can join at any time.

The 9-Patch is GROWING!

I have tried really hard to do a little sewing every day on this quilt, and been fairly successful in doing so. I like how it looks! I finished the 20 blocks and put them together, and when these pictures were taken a few days ago, had added two narrow borders to the sides. Now to begin the border on the top and bottom! There will eventually be more borders than just these narrow 2.5 inch strips… REALLY!
