Disappearing-Nine-Patch Quilt for Liz

Over the last few days I have completed a quilt top, and co-ordinated backing for a very special person, my twin-brother’s partner, Liz.  Liz had a milestone birthday, earlier in the year, and although this is much belated, this quilt is to mark that milestone.  Actually, it is much more than that.  This quilt is to show her how much I love her, and value her place in our family.

Backing of the Quilt

The photos of the quilt top and backing were taken in pretty dodgy light, and so are not true representations, but they are the best I can achieve in the middle of winter.  The predominant colours of the quilt are ruby, coral and chocolate, with the addition on the back of some dusty blue.  Both ruby red, and dusty blue are colours I associate with Liz.

Quilt Particulars – The quilt is another “Disappearing-Nine-Patch” made with 108 x 8 1/2″ squares.  The finished quilt top is approximately 94″ x 71″.

It is a pretty big quilt, but I am going to attempt to quilt it myself, and have purchased some Ruby Red thread to do so.  Now I just have to baste it!  Are you wrangling any large quilts at the moment, or are some hiding in your cupboard because they are so large?

  1. I’ve got a queen-sized quilt that I basted at Craft Camp in March and it’s been sitting on the dining room table next to my machine ever since. I guess I’m just not feeling the love…

    That quilt looks lovely. Your brother’s partner will be rapt.

  2. Funny you should ask, I just finished quilting a queen sized quilt I started last year, it’s been in hiding and now I’m ready to bind… Will be so happy when it’s done. I just did strait line free motion and it was a killer, be prepared for your arms to get a work out, lol. Good luck looks great!
