What are you most proud of? I'm most proud that I finished the quilt even though the teacher lost interest in assisting myself and a friend when taking a basic learn to quilt class because we bought our materials from a large crafts & fabric store instead of a speciality quilting store. The Basic 9 Patch was the class project.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? A basic 9 patch is extremely simple so if you want more of a challenge, add some of your own design and embellishment to it. Most of all, HAVE FUN.

I never could stick to a pattern so decided to add the lilac frame around each of my 9 patch squares and then embellish with some red lace to blend in with the red border which was also used as the backing fabric for my basic 9 patch quilt.
