Classic and Vintage Quilt for Fat Quarter Shop – Double Nine Patch

Today is the big reveal for the Fat Quarter Shop‘s Classic and Vintage Quilt Along on their blog Jolly Jabber, and I was delighted to be able to participate as a quilting blogger.  Just click on the Fat Quarter Shop link, and select ‘blog’ on the right side of the blue bar at the top to see it.  Now I can finally show you the quilt I have been secretly working on.

Did you guess that these strips became nine patch blocks?

I made a bunch all at once.

Did you peek at the tags to see it is a double nine patch?

For the Fat Quarter Shop’s Classic and Vintage setting, solid white blocks were set between the double nine patches.

Then the rows were placed with alternating setting.

More rows make a flimsy.

A white border to set the nine patches apart from the outer border, then red was added.

I wanted it just a bit bigger for a QOV, so I added a third blue border.

I loaded it on the longarm to quilt, with Warm and Natural batting.

I used a light blue thread to quilt it with a simple, cloud-like pantograph.

Quilting completed, it was trimmed up for binding.

Then, bound in the same color as the border.

    Good morning Carole,
    Caught the double blocking right off very unique. The red border really sets of the smaller red squares. Lots of great planning went into this , you are a winner in by book. Great thinking on the light blue thread and the design to quilt it in. It is still so cold here, still in the teens but its probably just as cold where you are. Staying inside as much as possible working on my projects.

    I’m thinking about joining the UFO challenges on several sites, Craftsy has it as well. You go through projects so quickly! I have 2 quilts in progress, just got a great coupon from my long arm quilter that I hope to use soon, but the 3 are waiting for small things: squaring up the blocks on my fussy cut log cabin so I can add the corner stars; finishing the flips on the edges of a picket fence quilt that will have stars in the corners, and the third is just in cutting so far. I feel like that dog in “Up”: Squirrel! I get distracted by other pretty and intriguing projects!

    Your QOV is simple but gorgeous. You almost get the Irish Chain with this setting, eh? I thought you might put on one more navy or red border, but you surprised and delighted with the sky blue, makes everything else pop out more. I have to learn to be less rigid with my colors. I love scrappy quilts but have yet to commit entirely to one, I still get anal and “coordinate” to death. Okay, along with UFO’s, I think maybe another resolution should be, less rigid/more spontaneity!

    Big hug from warm CO… you all are taking our needed winter moisture! But I don’t envy you the power outages. Denver area (1/3 of CO just about, including surrounding counties/suburbs) has outlawed fireplaces and woodstoves, even pellet stoves, so what do WE do when power goes out mid winter? hopefully I won’t find out. Wonder if we can get kerosene stoves as we had in the 80’s in Maryland…. hmmm

  3. I’ve seen a few of these quilts this morning and yours is one of my favorites. I noticed last summer that I only have two red, white & blue quilts…not acceptable for a Navy Mom! I may copy your idea 🙂

    Niceeeeeeeeeee! I will be saving alot of of ideas this year as i’m going to work on what i have on hand, a few UFO’s and of course new -QUICK projects for seasonal decorating. I will still enjoy reading all your projects and ideas..during my lunch half hour… :). Thanks and Happy New Year!

    Hello Carole; This is a spectacular quilt! The strong vivid fabrics you chose for the nine patch are so perfect for this quilt. They just make the whole quilt (I know this will sound weird, but you know me) “POP” and that will make everyone go ohhhh and ahhh…isn’t that so beautiful!!!!! Of course, throw into that the lovely cloud quilting that takes your “POP” quilt go onto “OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS GORGEOUS”! Can you tell, you have me hooked to try and make one that even trickles a raindrop in comparison to yours, but it is going to be so much fun! Thank you for sharing! Have a fantastic day!!

  6. I do love the double nine patch, and it is a great way to use up some of those smaller scraps. Yours is just beautiful, and that was a quick turn from start to finish. I finished the top of my bed runner this morning (from your Christmas quilt block), I’ll send you a photo!

    Hi Carole,
    Your quilt is beautiful! I think I’ll make one in a similar color scheme. Can you please tell us the pantograph used in this one? I really like the look!
