I love disappearing 9 patch quilts - they are so quick to sew up, and the different ways you can arrange the 9 patches are endless. This time I tried for a much less random pattern, you can see some of the options I tried out. In the end Miss M chose the star one rather than the straight lines, it is for her bed after all as she pointed out to me :)
I have still to sew on a border (or two) and then I'm going to hand quilt it as usual, it takes ages but I do like the look that hand quilting gives a quilt.
I like the colours together, they are not at all girly but then neither is my girl :) At night she cuddles up to 3 fire breathing dragons, one dinosaur, a cow and a pig; most of her games involve dragons and volcanoes erupting and her little brother being eaten by lions. I did get invited to a my little pony party last week but that ended abruptly when dragons gatecrashed and carnage ensued *sigh*.
