Name of website or photo Nine patch block
What materials did you use? Vintage top from an antique shop. Had a Polished cotton backing to match. Hand quilted around floral pattern in blue e-floss. Binding is in the same fabric. Measures about 70" by 90". Queen topper.
What are you most proud of? Finishing this was a big challenge and many times I anted to just put it in a pillow case and forget it but I was in love with the yellow cotton nine patch blocks and knew I HAD to finish it. I would quilt into the night often not even going to bed. I love it and plan to hand it down to one of my many adult children and grandkids.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Buy antique tops is an addicting thing. At one time I had 20 tops. I only finished 3. I donated the rest to a quilting group to finish up. I would bid on them on eBay and win. I won the DWR that is pictured here on craftsy at an auction for $38.00. It is valued now at around $2,000.00. Check it out!
