The 9 Hour Quilt

I had planned on finishing some projects, but … a 9 Hour Quilt?  I must be crazy??

I grabbed out 6 fabrics that coordinated well together.  I then cut a 13.5 inch square of each.  I then sliced at 5 inches from one side, and then sewed the blocks back together with a different print.  Once pressed, I again sliced, at 6.75 inches, or in half.  Then I again paired up the halves with a different set of prints, and re-sewed.

I then had 6 blocks, which I rearranged and sewed into the top.  A border of lovely green, then a simple stipple had me ready to call it a night.

First thing this morning I did the binding.  It is now ready to gift this afternoon.

So pleased I challenged myself.
