Nine patch

This nine-patch quilt was an ebay find. As far as I can tell, it’s from the 1800’s. I am carefully hand quilting it, and it is really a beauty.

I think I might be able to enter it into a quilt contest, since I’m the quilter and I only purchased the top. Not sure if I’ll ever finish it, since it’s HUGE – larger than a king? – but it helps me warm up into the stitch pattern of quilting again when I’ve been out of practice. So calming.

Have you ever heard of this Nine Patch Studio?
It’s very cute, some of the quilts here are so tiny!
