WIPs Be Gone Week 17

Another WIP done!  This one is #9.
 I started this when our Darling Lily was 2 in the hopes of having it done when she got a youth bed. Well, that didn't happen. Now she has a twin bed and she's just turned 5 April 16th, and I finally finished it.
 Here's the busy back I used for it. The machine worked beautifully for me and it used about 10 bobbins worth of So Fine thread.
I tried different motifs in the sashing strips that formed on two sides when I cut up the disappearing Nine-Patch blocks.  I'm really liking this pattern - it's so easy but seems complicated.  It's about 54" by 68".

Have to go back now and work on #3, 5, 6 and 7.  Not as far along as that #9 makes it look like I am.   How are you doing on your wips?Would love to see - doesn't have to be a finish, but we'll admire those, too.  Linky below - remember it doesn't have to be a new post, just one that shows a WIP.  Ends Monday, midnight.  I'm linking to Sarah's Can I get a Whoop, Whoop?, Amanda's for Finish it Up Fridays, and Richard's Link a finish Friday. And for the FMQ,  linking to Lizzie's fun party FMQ Mavericks.   and Julie for her Pet Project ShowLots of eye candy on the NET.  Bye for now. 


What a cute and happy color/fabric quilt. Congratulations on the finish.

Your checky, stripey quilt has 'tude! It reminds me of a cross between Anne of Green Gables, and a patchwork dress I wore in the 70's. Love it!

It's a cute quilt for a 2 year-old, a 5 year-old or a teenager. I'll bet she treasures it and uses it for a long time.

Hello Angie,

Such a sweet quilt, and now Lily is a big girl of 5 she will appreciate it all the more. The fabrics give it a really traditional timeless look, and I can imagine her running her finger round and round the spirals.

Thank you for linking up with Free Motion Mavericks!

Love, Muv
