Latest quilt completion

I finally completed the "disappearing 9 patch". I wanted to make it larger than what was declared in the class I took from a friend so had to use a couple of other lighter fabrics in the blocks but I put them in the corners and scattered a couple more throughout. I quilted it myself on my Grace with the Elna. Not my very best work but I am happy enough with it. I did not have to pay someone to quilt it at least. It is a large quilt and fits on a king size bed. The backing is a hoot and something I picked up at a quilt store for $4 a yd. This is a fun project but I had to drag it out. I just finished the binding tack down on 6-18. I placed it on our bed but need to take the leftover fabrics and try to concoct a bed skirt with them to match. How long can I drag that out--a few more months probably but there are other priorities calling.

That looks great! I like the subtle variation those lighter blocks give the whole quilt.

Fran, I am looking at your quilt again. I have to tell you it is really very pretty, I love the look of it very much. Great job.

That is so beautiful. I just found your site, I love it! On your disappearing 9-patch you have only two colors is that correct? I am 77 and not the best at figuring out things. I have seen it on internet but nothing as wonderful as yours. Is there a pattern that you used. I am a Texan I am supposed to be smarter, ha ha.
