DWMonday ~ Grant and Lee

I just love this panel that I recently received as a surprise gift!

As I started thinking about what to do with it, I remembered these 9 patches I had from a swap a few years ago.

These finish at 3 inches, so I trimmed the panel and added borders to get the math to work out evenly.

That border fabric has been in my stash for a VERY long time! I think it was from Fons and Porter’s very first line! I cut some plain blocks from some repro shirting fabrics and then I started playing around with a layout.

I might need to make a few more 9 patches, but I have to try not to go too crazy. I want this to be a wall quilt. Lately, it seems that I want to make everything into a bed quilt!

Have a great day!

    The small nine patches go lovely with the center panel. Just the right color and style of fabric.

    How wonderful to have a wall quilt come together so well. And, the part I like best is that the 9 patches for the most part are already done and your stash gave forth the fabric bordering the panel and the shirtings. I call that a free quilt! Hope to see it finished soon.

  7. So nice and so quick! As far as I can see, all you need now is something darker for the final border to tie in to the center and frame the entire piece! Just lovely!

  8. Yummy! My favorite kind of quilt. You’ve inspired me to dig out my panel!
