My place to be creative

Creative Week 14

2 Comments

I have made 2 quilt tops this week completed an awful lot of research and designing, I have even written a pattern for this weeks quilt idea.  I will be saving one of the quilt tops for next week as it is not quite finished yet but this will also be accompanied by written instructions, whoa slow down – am I having a funny turn or what – writing patterns again after such a long while, admittedly the last patterns I wrote were for knitwear, so I hope these are understandable, please let me know.

I have called this one Double 9 Patch

This is the link for the pattern, which includes all fabric requirements and cutting information:- Double 9 Patch Quilt approx 36

I have yet to layer this quilt up as I have run out of my favourite batting – I feel a need to visit the Cotton Patch (www.cottonpatch.co.uk) coming on -shh don’t tell my husband!

  1. Very interesting. Traditionally, a double nine patch has had a smaller nine-patch in the center and four corners. (I recently showed one I made about 30 years ago on my blog: http://doraquilts.blogspot.com/2013/04/what-was-on-bed-again.html) I do like yours but I don’t know an easy memorable name–which it certainly deserves.

    • Thank you for your comment, I was interested to hear your definition of a nine patch, although still not as your traditional description, I was referring to the 9 patch within the 9 patch quilt itself and I agree another name would have been great, sadly I was unable to think of one.
