9-Patch UFO

I was going to keep up with the one-a-day quilt-along that was going around this summer, but I got distracted. Sometimes I’m just not that good at keeping up with the crowd!

pile of 9-patch blocksI liked the quilt on the cover of this magazine and decided that would be a great project for the Darla fabrics I had in my stash.

Quilts & Gifts magazineHere’s what the finished top looks like, which measures 50 inches all the way around. I think it turned out cute and sweet with two sugar cubes on top!

I finally made time a couple Sundays ago to quilt it, sewing diagonal lines in both directions through each square and nine-patch block. (hard to see in the photo but each square and 9-patch has an X sewn through it)

I pieced the back together like this.

  1. Two sugar cubes is right! I like the diagonal quilting and will have to try that. I really like the pieced back, too.
    Good luck with your UFOs!

  2. Wouldn’t it be a blast to decorate a large bedroom all in Darla? And budget be darned!! I know it’s been done, but . . .I’m just sayin’ ! That sweet quilt would look perfect draped across the foot of the bed!

  3. I am also one of those that get distracted easily! And i adore Darla range of fabrics and your quilt is sooo amazingly beautiful! Love it lots! Have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!
