Antique Nine Patch Blocks are lovely, I think.
I decided to make a baby quilt for a new baby girl. I have to say that I love the simplicity of antique nine patch quilts and that was my major inspiration to make this style of quilt. Of course I wanted it to be scrappy with lots of block variation.
Nine Patch set on point look terrific because the quilt appears so balanced. So that’s what I decided to do. Every Nine Patch block is a unique combination of fabrics, with two fabrics in each block. I used a light pink puppy novelty print for the background.
For something different, I machine quilted it in Sashiko style around the blocks which gives it the ruffled look between each block to make it just a little bit different! I don’t like baby quilts too heavily quilted as they become stiffer. This quilt is lovely and soft and very drapable.
This quilt is now residing in Switzerland.
