Erin's Flower Power Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm always proud to make something my grand girls love! What advice would you give someone starting this project? if you do this pattern by cutting a large 9 patch into smaller blocks, be very precise when you cut, it's not a forgiving block if you are off! it can be pieced the more traditional way, which is a bit easier...

What you will need

  • cotton fabric
  • polyester batting

Beautiful hand quilting! I have just made a quilt using the same technique on the 9 patch blocks - I love it - looks so much more complicated than it really is! thank you for sharing your beautiful quilt
qulady answered:
thank you! i agree its easy to do and looks more complicated than it is, which is fine by me, since i'd rather do the quilting than the piecing!
Pamillia asked:
This one is also a Treasure. I really enjoy your quilting & the designs that you decide to put on your quilts. One of the girls in our quilting group has her daughter making one. It is turning out wonderfully. Thanks again for sharing.
qulady answered:
i like quick and easy piecing, since my favorite part of making quilts is the hand quilting!

I've been looking at quilts on this site for two hours and I think this is my favorite pattern. Not only are your colors among my favorite, but I am always drawn to works that cut up and larger piece and reassemble it. Thanks for sharing:)
qulady answered:
Thank you! disappearing 9 patch is a favorite of mine, it can look very different depending on the fabric combos, i love the colors in this one too, so cheerful!
