I went to work on the back of the 10 Little Things Disappearing 9-Patch today and actually finished it! It’s a big accomplishment because I decided to use a panel in the back (remind me to NEVER do that again!). The rest of the back became an exercise in geometry and piecing. Thank goodness my husband was a math major in college – I enlisted his help to draw out the pattern I’d need to complete the back of the quilt. I also had a limited amount of the blue fabric and wanted to make the most of what I had instead of taking the easy way out and going to buy 3 more yards.
Here’s the finished quilt, in reverse order (because I’m a dork like that)…
Finished back (a bit on the blurry side…sorry!)
Cut apart 9-patch block (It’s a little scary sewing them together, then cutting them apart right away!)
And here’s the pattern that hubby created for me (geometry was never my strong subject):
What’s this about ‘Ben, Bunny & Me’??
Ben Folds was my companion today while I completed the back for the quilt, and now as I type this. I love me some Ben Folds.
And Bunny? Well, that’s the name that I recently gave my sewing machine. I’ve had her for close to 10 years, so I thought I’d better get to naming her! She’s a Bernina, so I named her after my aunt, Bernice, whose nickname was Bunny or Bun.
Great quilt! I have the disappearing 9-patch on my to-do list but haven’t made it yet. Love your color choices! LOL on figuring the math for the back! I hate when a ‘good idea’ ends up that way!
Thanks for stopping by! The blocks came together so quickly. It all stalled out when it came to piecing the back! Very good idea gone bad!
