100% Cotton fabric from my children's old duvets and clothes
What was your inspiration?
I have began to teach 2 ladies from my church how to quilt and thought the disappearing 9 patch would be a fun and easy block to start with... therefore I had to make a quilt using this technique myself!
I hope to fmq it sometime but I will wait until I feel more confident to use my darning foot on a whole quilt!
What are you most proud of?
Using some of my two daughter's unwanted clothes and duvets from their childhood and as I cut and pieced them together it brought back lovely memories. I am so pleased with how the fabrics have come together.
This quilt will be used for the spare room for my little grand-daughter when she comes to stay:)
I am also pleased with how my mitered corners on the border turned out.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just look through your wardrobes and see what cotton items you are not using and just cut them up! Nothing is safe in my house anymore ;-)
