NINE MONTHS OF LOVE
Designed and quilted by: Tove Leggett
This quilt was inspired by finding the already cut 3.5 inch squares, left overs from another quilt or two. I must have really liked this 1930/40 reproduction fabric that I purchased almost 7 years ago. This is the third quilt I have made out of the original purchased batch of fabric. I love the colors and the kitties, good thing being that I bought two much for one quilt.
This is the idea I came up with using the 3.5 inch squares, a 9 patch how original! I mixed in a couple other scrap fabrics from my stash to come up with my square. I decided to do a white center and found some minke! The center square is so soft, I love it. I love designing quilts; I am not as productive as some of you out there, but I seem to always be busy. This quilt posed its' own challenges as every quilt does. My big challenge that I would love to know, the correct answer to was my set triangles. How to figure the correct size. I ended up with triangles that were too big, thank goodness. So I will be looking up the correct way to do those before tackling set triangles again. I love learning as I go.
I decide that the quilt top was to small and added the outer border. To my surprise it was the finishing touch, that I love. I can not imagine the quilt finished up without it.
