I finished this I spy that I started at my recent retreat (after the llama's were pieced).  It is one of the kits I put together.  I really wanted to use some of my white novelties, but it doesn't have as much contrast as the pattern needed.  It is another one from Kim Brackett.  It was very fast to put the kit together since I had already precut a bunch of 2.5" strips.  But if I do this pattern again, I'll use a TOT instead of the white novelties.  I like how the pattern creates it's own sashing.


Here is what the individual blocks look like.  but when you put them together it creates the star in the middle and and interesting pieced sashing.  Pretty clever.

Looks great.

I got the binding machine sewn to my queen sized quilt I just took off the longarm on Friday. I will hand sew it on my next trip to New Mexico in a couple of weeks.

I also loaded up another really old UFO. Another blockswap the 3" nine patch. Still trying to figure out a quilting design but getting close to what I think I will do.

It is pretty busy. It all has to do with the material that you use to make it interest cause the pattern is plain and simple.

Finally getting going on the 3" nine patch.

Thank you. It took a bit to come up with it. I think this is going to take a large chunk of time to finish but I am happy with the design. What is not to love about feathers.

Wow .. that's awesome.  I never would have thought of doing that inside a 9-patch!  I love the innovative ways you think outside the box. :-)

Well I made this top about 20 years ago and it has taken me this long to come up with a plan.

I am imagining those nine-patches giggling with delight about finally getting to come out after years  of waiting for their chance to show off their beauty. This is going to be a magnificent quilt.
