Progress is being made on my Disappearing 9 Patch quilt.
Update 6: Quilt Top Completed
I finished sewing all 20 disappearing 9 patch squares together and decided I wanted my quilt a little longer. I was lucky to have enough material leftover to add one more row of 4 squares across the bottom. My quilt top now measures 50″ wide x 74″ long. It is 4 squares across by 6 squares down.
I am very pleased with the way my quilt top turned out. How do you like the way I hung it to take a picture? I used skirt hangers and hung them from the top of the linen closet in the hallway. After I took the picture, I took down the quilt top and hung the batting up. I am using Warm & White, a bleached white needled cotton batting. I then hung the quilt top over it. It helped me to get it lined up and the wrinkles out so that I could lay the two layers out on my bed and fold it up. My next step will be to cut my backing. I bought a high quality muslin in white for my backing. Tomorrow I will start the process of adding my backing to my other two layers, pinning and quilting the quilt. This is the hardest process for me and it may take me a while. That’s o.k., I’m in no hurry! Happy sewing.
