In For a Penny

I think that’s what I’ll call this quilt! Anyway, I pieced the 9 patches back together.

And I arranged them as closely as possible like they were originally. I did make it one row shorter so I could leave out some dodgy bits.

Now it is back together, basted, and ready for hand quilting.

I’m going to use crochet thread and big stitch quilting to do Baptist Fans. In theory, it shouldn’t take long since the top is now smaller.

Have a great day!

  1. I love that pink! What a fun quilt this will be and you really rescued the blocks!

    When you first posted about this quilted, I thought Oh Dear! But I am a believer in what you can do with an old and poorly sewn project – it looks fantastic now and will look even better after you hand quilt it. Good Work! Dorothy

    Those old fabric nine patches; you treated them well!
    Succes with the handquiting you suggested.
    Why do you live and work so far away!?
    I want to touch the fabric….
    Have a nice day. Anneke

  5. Your parenthetical “in theory” made me laugh. I wonder if the original maker would recognize the finish?

  6. You finished that up quickly! Love that bubblegum pink. Sure would like to know the maker’s story behind this quilt – why she made it, who was it for, etc.
