Bunnies & Bears

This is what I worked on this week along with a few things on my list. It's a Disappearing 9-Patch except I put a full block down the center then half a block on each side. This is for 8 month old great-granddaughter Addison. When I made the first quilt in April for her, I didn't know she was a she and I wanted her to have a soft looking girly one. @:)

That is too cute. I have two blankets I need to make for a friend having twins and have no clue what I am going to do yet. We always did Mickey and Minnie but they love Winnie the Pooh as well so maybe I should look for a print like you have in your other quilt...

RE: Bunnies & Bears

Thank you....I'm in the process of doing the label and hope to get it in the mail next week. I really like how well the colors came together.

It looks very snuggly. Makes me want to curl up with it and take a nap myself.

RE: Bunnies & Bears

Thank you for the nice comments. I see I was so intent on getting the gold squares where I wanted them that I didn't see the fact I could have made it a little more balanced! Live and learn....

Rosa, We had 3 grandsons before we got a girl.....yeah, she's spoiled....but then, so were the boys. lol That's my job!!!!

Another cute quilt, Sharon. It looks so snuggly!! You are zipping right through those goals, short month or not.

Thanks, Bonnie, I had to do something to help me focus. Going month by month is better for me than looking at a long list of UFO's....I would crawl under the covers and hide!

RE: Bunnies & Bears

Sorry to bug you but can you re-explain how you made this one? I can't quite get it and it is a lovely quilt.
Thanks,

RE: Bunnies & Bears yet again

Oh, to clarify, did you make a regular 9 patch first? Or did you do a variation of it?
Thanks again,

RE: Bunnies & Bears

I made the regular D9P, sewing the four squares together after cutting the 9-patch for the center of the quilt. On the sides, I used the 4 squares without sewing them together. Just put them on each side til it looked ok to me. Hope this helps......

RE: Bunnies & Bears

Thanks!
I think I figured out why it looked so different to me.
Is this how you pieced your initial block?

print/green/print
white/yellow/white
print/green/print

I wanna be a D9patch queen (or a princess at the very least).
Thanks again,
Kelly (lots2do)

You got it, Kelly! You'll be on the Royal Court soon! I think part of learning is to look at a quilt and try to figure out the pattern.
