Design Wall-Week 18

Week 18 brings a baby quilt to my design wall. I'm cheating and posting on Sunday evening instead of Monday. I want to be ready for my Quilt For An Hour.

My niece's baby is due to arrive any day now. And guess who is late with the baby quilt. Yeah, that would be me. The worst part is, this baby's sister is over 2 and is still waiting for her quilt. I have that one ready to quilt and this one will be ready to quilt soon.

My friend gave me a stack of 6" squares, so I paired them up and made magic 9 patches with them, put them into a baggie and put them away. One day, while searching for something else, I ran across them. I've had this plan in my head since that day. Today I got them out, trimmed them up and here we are. I'm still thinking about the border fabric. I have others to audition before my final decision. The backing is a bright yellow flannel with green, pink and purple splotches on it. Soft and cuddly.

Here are instructions for the nine patches using 2 squares of fabric. I can't remember on who's site I learned to do this. It was years ago and I want to say it was Billie Lauder but I can't find it on the www anymore.

Go visit Judy L at Patchwork Times and see what other quilters have on their design wall. I love Mondays. Again, thanks Judy for keeping this going.

The colors are really nice together. The wait will be worth it for these little ones.
