Happy Little Nine Patch

Hello all! Happy New year! Hope you are all off to a wonderful start to 2015. I have a new quilt to share...

This one is off to The Night of Hope to raise money for Breast Cancer research in their silent auction. They have a secondary fundraising event called 'Harness the Hope' held at a local horse race venue, my nine patch will be auctioned there.

I enjoyed the process of digging through my scraps to make these little nine patches - it was like a trip down memory lane.



 Am still enthralled with these strawberries...I wonder how many more quilts I can sneak them into. (Note to self - must buy more!)


Finished it off with a stripy Denyse Schmidt print (and a flannel on the back - super cozy!)...

And a label of course! Nothing leaves the sewing room without one of these babies...

Have I ever told you that I glue my binding? And then I machine sew it on - works like a charm. It's a great trick - have you tried it?!


Take care all! Linking up with 'Finish it up Friday' at Crazy Mom Quilts.

  4. I love this quilt. I think 9 patches are one of my favorite blocks and the polka dot fabric is so fun! I just bought the fine line quilt glue tip and haven't finished a quilt to use it on a binding but can't wait to try! I really need to order labels! Hope your quilt raises lots of money!

  5. I've done the glue thing, but I'm a mess! I'll stick with lots of pressing and wonder clips. This quilt is absolutely darling, and I LOVE your photography skills. Beautiful job, and I hope it does well at the auction.

  11. A lovely finish Lisa. I've never even thought of gluing a binding. I guess if you're planning to machine stitch both sides it would hold it securely for easier stitching.

  12. This quilt is beautiful! The blocks with tiny corners are a lovely idea and I really like the effect the background fabric for the nine patches gives.
