Using the disappearing 9 patch method as shown here disappearing 9 patch tutorial by p.s. i quilt, I made a gorgeous throw for the winter months. This is the first real quilt I have attempted and thus started my love for patchwork quilting.
I laid out all the squares out. Having 5 light 4 dark, or vice versa
|I sewed 9 squares together|
|Chopped and twisted them around like so|
|A pile of squares after chopping|
|Then the fun began - laying them all out and trying to get the right colours in the right places.|
Sewed them together - voila!
I had to use one extra square of material as there weren't quite enough from the 2 charm packs, but it worked out well and as you'll see below came together as I used it in the border.
|I love the quilting design Dawn used. The flowers and the butterfly suited the design perfectly|
