Happy Easter!! I got a finish in before the bunny arrived

Crossroads is done!!  I think I might put it back on the frame and feather the parts of the X that are quilted, it just doesn't look that even to me.  But that's not gonna happen for a while. We'll see if it grows on me

And since I finished one of the quilts on my to-do list, that means I get to start another one.  This is one that will be for Hands 2 Help (did you sign up yet?  see the button on the side).  It's a double nine patch, which I found here.  A couple different layouts, not sure which one I like the most.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter.  Don't eat too many of those peeps or jelly beans :)

  3. Gorgeous quilt!!! Whether or not you decide to add quilting.
    The new one is a "Split Nine Patch," I'm thinking, because a Double Nine-Patch has is a nine-patch in which the corner squares and center square is a much smaller nine-patch. (Maybe the terminology has changed.)

  8. The quilt is gorgeous - I love your quilting and the colours are so nice and fresh! And I like the way you did the border. It looks like you will have fun playing with the 9-patch layout! Hope you had a good Easter!

  9. Sue, Your quilting is getting unbelievable. Oh my gosh! All that fabulous quilting yet it does not overwhelm the design, just enhances the whole.
    On the DD9P, I like the 2nd one best. Did you do a 5 inch and 7 inch to create the blocks? Am hoping to do this one myself but was hesitant to try with good fabric. ggg Anne in Colorado
