Blue Split 9 Patch Quilt

One of my 100 day challenges was to sew together the blocks for blue split 9 patch. Split 9 patch was Bonnie Hunter's 2013 Leader and Ender Challenge. The pattern is here under Bonnie's free patterns listing.


The blocks have been sewn together into the main body of the quilt and measures 85" by 96". I'm going to stop for now. There will be a border added sometime but I'm planning on this quilt being a wedding gift. I need to find out what size bed to finish the flimsy for. This quilt will definitely be long arm quilted.

Looking at the picture, I see I have two blocks in the same row turned wrong. I'll get those corrected before I add the border. This pattern is a definite challenge to orient the blocks!

So lovely! Good thing you caught those two blocks when you did!

I see the two blocks are on the outside edges so should not be too too difficult to correct. This is really beautiful.

Pretty colors. I've made a quilt with that pattern before and I replaced the split nine rail blocks with a 9-patch in the corners.

Wow, this is a stunning quilt, and a lovely wedding gift! I love the small pink, red and yellow patches inside the blues. The 2 blocks turned wrong could have been layed this way on a purpose ;)
