I found the blog Fairies & Fibres hosted by Karen H several years ago. She is an EPP extraordinaire but she also has some interesting quilt patterns for pieced quilts. Click on quilts by Karen H. in the heading of her blog and scroll down.
Several years ago I made her pattern, Cherry Blossoms. Of course I made the quilt larger than her pattern and added the pieced border.
I've always wanted to make her 9-Patches & Baskets pattern. I can't believe I did this during the summer, but I actually started the quilt last week. Many years ago I sewed strips and pieces and made a large quantity of 3" finished 9-patch blocks. I used some of them in my double 9-patch quilt but I still had a large basket of the blocks left, perfect for Karen's quilt. I've run out of 9-patches that have neutral corners so I'll finish the quilt another day. This was a fun and quick piecing project since I had most of the 9-patches already pieced.
Of course I modified the pattern to suit me. My quilt is going to be king sized. Also all of Karen's 9-patches had dark corners. I pieced my quilt with alternating 9-patches so they would interlock with each other.
I'm going go through the small pieces of fabrics around here and make more 9-patches. Hopefully I'll have enough pieced to finish piecing this quilt sometime this winter.
I need to add 3 more rows with the blue squares (already pieced) and 4 more rows of 9-patches.
I'll worry about piecing the basket border after the center is completed.
Now I need to return to Nearly Insane.
I'm including a picture of these heifers in the pasture south of our house. They are enjoying the treat of corn husks left after husking sweet corn.
