Uneven Nine Patch Quilts
I enjoyed making these simple baby quilts. They are just a large uneven nine patch block made with two coordinating fabrics which were 1.5 yards. The inner section is 24 by 34 inches and the borders are 8 inches wide.
I bought the fabrics when a quilt shop nearby was closing earlier this year. They are all Riley Blake/Penny Rose fabrics.
I quilted the first one on my Tiara.
I quilted the second one on the Bernina Q24.
I found it easier to quilt this design on the sit down quilting machine because I could keep the borders more continuous. I chose a simpler border design on the second one to make up for that.
The first one has wild quilting in the center, feathers in the border, and flowers in the corners.
It has a cute red with daisy stripe binding.
The same red daisy is on the back.
The second one has a heart/swirl combo in the center, circular loops in the border, and flowers in the corners.
It has the same red daisy stripe binding.
The backing is the cute strawberry print from the top.
They both finish about 40 by 50 inches and will be donated somewhere soon. (I might take them to the local Project Linus.)
I love simple baby quilts!
P.S. I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar. Check them out to see what other quilters have been up to.
