Finished! Super-Sized 9 Patch

For quite a while, my go-to baby quilt was this free pattern from Quiltmaker called Super-Sized 9-Patch.  It's a great pattern because with 1 yard each of 3 fabrics, you end up with 3 baby quilts.  I'm now expanding my horizons, but I still had one of of my last "set" that was unfinished. 

It is now finished and ready to go to Project Linus!  I'm determined to get better at free motion quilting, so I've been taking Leah Day's Class Free Motion Fillers (Volume 1) on Craftsy.  I read on her website that the best way to get to know a design is to use it on an entire quilt.  So I picked loopy lines as a design I want to conquer, and that is what is used for most of this quilt.  I did something a little different for the corners with the animal print because I didn't want to loop over all those cute animals!

This is a Quarter 2 finish with the Finish-Along hosted by Adrianne at On the Windy Side. You can see my Q2 project list here.  Please note that this listed as "Last Big 9-Patch" on that list.

  1. Using a design over an entire quilt sounds like a great way to master it. Your quilt is darling. Congrats on your finish!

  2. Another lovely Linus quilt - bravo!
