More 9 Patch Crib Quilts

I actually used a pattern for the next group of 9 patch crib quilts, at least 2 out of the 3. The pattern is County Fair and is from Lissa Alexander's book, Scrap School.

This first quilt I made a smaller version of Country Fair. But when I sewed it together, the triangle pieces didn't fit! I had glanced over the pattern and thought I knew what I was doing. The sashing was a different size than I thought.  I did NOT take it apart, just cut new triangles and sewed it together. 

I just straight line quilted 1/2" from the seam lines. After I attached the binding, I realized I missed a line of quilting. I'm just leaving it like it is. This little quilt measures 35.5" by 46".

I made sure I followed the pattern for the next quilt but then I forgot what I was doing and sewed sashing onto the corner 9 patches. That correction was easily made. This little cutie measures 43" by 53".


For the 3rd quilt, I decided to just make it simple and used a straight set. I used curvy line quilting stitching all the seams vertically but just quilted the horizontal sashing seams. This quilt measures 44" by 52"


Here are all three of them hanging on the clothes line.

  2. They are all adorable! I think the middle one, multi color on pointe, is my favorite. Have a great day!

  3. I like the on point versions the best - something about on point quilts that stand out more to me

  8. I absolutely love the first one, the quilting really ties it all together. If you hadn't mentioned it I would not have noticed the missed line. Thank you so much for linking up to Put your foot down.
