This is my spare bedroom......the kind of bedroom I would have loved to have when I was little..
....so I have it now. I just keep adding the pretty things I make.. I love that dancing dollies quilt on the bed. It's all hand quilted.
Now I'm making this Dancing Nine Patch, but a nice border that you will see later.
I love this pattern by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville.....I don't usually make more than one of a design, but this one is my third ....
It really is so quick and easy to chain piece....can be done in a day with strips....or great for using up little pieces of scraps...
Look at that gorgeous face on my Sleepy Sally doll....
I think she looks happy there on the new quilt top....this quilt is not for me, well, I'll see if I can part with it when the time comes.
Sewing away on the nine patches here, I was thinking of my first ever quilting lesson.
I was so excited, packed all my stuff, hurried off to class, only to find I had left my sewing machine foot pedal at home.
The teacher wanted us to start with nine patches....."really" I thought, just sewing little squares into a nine patch"....couldn't argue with the teacher, so nine patches it had to be.
I wanted to make a "REAL" quilt, like with Flying Geese, Ohio stars, and Pinwheels....and now, Nine Patches is one of my favourite blocks to do.
Have a lovely New Year...I don't think I can stay up that late!.....♥
