I get the pleasure of speaking with the Johnson County Quilt Guild on the 27th. I am working on a fun precut demonstration for them, but just had to share with everyone! Here’s a new and fun take on a disappearing 9-patch using 3.5″ squares.
The line is an older one by Riley Blake Designs called A Beautiful Thing by Zoe Pearn. I don’t think you can get it anymore, but I think we can all agree it’s simply adorable!
Today we’re going to go over how to make your backing, spray the batting to the front and back as well as pin for quilting. I’m going to be honest here…this is my LEAST favorite part of the quilt making process. I think it’s because now we’re dealing with yards of fabric and not small blocks. It can become a circus to try to tackle it all. Likewise, I have a dog and a cat who have sixth sense about quilts and always need to get in the middle of the process. I’ll add a cute ‘outtake’ below so you can see what I’m talking about. Okay enough babbling…as I said least favorite, but with these techniques it should be fairly painless. What do ya say? Let’s get started!
