Red & Aqua Disappearing Nine Patch Variation Quilt

How’s that for a long blog post title?

My red and aqua quilt is all finished and I thought you’d like to see.

I think this was my longest lived WIP.  I blogged about it here and here.  2009 – 2012.  Oooh it feels good to get this stack of blocks off of my WIP shelf.  Yes, I have a whole shelf.  It’s a SMALL shelf though!

The finished quilt measures 56” x 69”

The disappearing nine patch variation that I chose to use was this one:

I used a Riley Blake print for the binding.  It’s from the Sugar and Spice line and I believe the print is called Blue Argyle.  There is a bit out there for sale online.  My local quilt shop had about a 1/4 of a bolt left, so check your local shop and see if they still have some.  It worked perfectly as a binding for this quilt!

I enjoyed doing this red/aqua swap.  I’d do one again.  I’d even consider hosting one.  I think maybe a gray/yellow swap? 

My red/aqua quilt is listed in the shop

I’m linking up:

  6. I love the variation on the disappearing nine-patch! I've done a few, but never that layout. Looks great! Nice color combo, too!

  7. The bright colors that comprise this quilt makes it so comfy to sleep at. I think you wouldn't need natural sleep aids just to get sleep with these quilts.
