Show and tell… Disappearing nine Patch edition

Oh boy, do we have some fun things to show you today!

Today is all about the Disappearing nine patch! This one was sent to us by Judy.  She added embroidery to her blocks and even personalized it with the babies name and birth date!  How neat is that!?

I love this quilt.

The next one is from Traci.  Another DP9 and she also added a little flair.  {isn’t that great about quilting?!  taking a block or pattern and making it your own!} She used a combination of two  different charm packs, ‘Just Wing it‘ and ‘Sugar Pop’ and I just love they way it turned out.

Aren’t those circles ‘too die for?’ I love how fun they are on the border!

The best thing about the disappearing nine patch is that you can ‘set’ it so many ways. {like Judy did with solids, creating the ‘hourglass’ look} It is great to see all the different ways you make them yours.  I bet that whoever you plan on giving these quilts to will be thrilled!

Thank you Traci and Judy for sharing your quilts with us.

If you have a quilt you would like to share with us, please email me.  We would love to show {and tell} everyone about it!

Have a great weekend.  I have lots planned to do at the shop.  We have expanded the shipping room {again} and have lots of shelves to put together and some paint to do.  I’ll try to get some pictures and show you what we’ve been doing Monday!

See you then…

Sugar Pop…

What a week I had last week!  Whew!  Glad it’s over!!  🙂  One thing I can always count on is that life is always interesting around here!!

We are just working like crazy on the website, getting everything updated and added.  I hope you have been able to see the improvements and additions!  Our little family business has just been growing like a weed.  (the good kind of weeds, you know the ones with pretty flowers on them.)

Anyway, here is a peak at the quilt top I put together using  the Sugar Pop line by Liz Scott from Moda. If you haven’t played with this line, you are missing out! It is so bright and colorful!  Just what I needed to keep the winter blahs away!

If you want the pattern for the top, here is Mom’s video tutorial:

Eden Quilt! A Jelly Roll and a Charm pack!

It is really a great, quick and easy top to put together!  All I need now is to pick out the border fabric and have it quilted!!  Don’t you worry, I will show you the finished project when it’s complete!

I hope you all have a GREAT Monday, and get lots done!  I am off to catch up on laundry and house cleaning.  (hoping I get it done fast, then I can work on another quilt idea I had!!)

Have a great day!
