Finished Split Nine Patch Quilt

Another Friday, another finish :)  This is the Split Nine Patch I have been working on for a few weeks.  It was based on this one from a do. good Stitches circle.  It has already been gifted and is in use at its new home!

This is the second quilt I have made with this color scheme (first was the Squirrely Triangles quilt) and I am starting to run low on these colors.  I still haven't grown tired of it, though.

This quilt includes one of my favorite prints of all time, this one from Tula Pink's Saltwater collection, along with a lot of scraps from Hawthorne Threads scrap packs.  Happily, all the white in this quilt was gathered from scraps!

I quilted it with what is rapidly becoming one of my favorite FMQ designs, the square spiral from Angela Walter's book.  It makes a good alternative to stippling for equally dense and quick quilting.

The quilt finished at a little over 65" square.  I had initially intended to make it bigger but thought better of it, so the last 3 nine patches ended up on the back. I think I like the back almost as well as the front!

It's bound with a yellow solid, washed, dried and ready for use.

Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it Friday.


  1. It's so bright and happy! The quilting is so balanced with the top! I love it!
    And you had all the needed white from scraps! Lucky girl!

  2. I love these colors too. Lovely quilt.

  3. Lol! Love the pattern, I think Carla linked to mine for the original. Great use of colours!

  4. I haven't seen this pattern before, I really like how it breaks up the 9 patch. Also, a big fan of your color scheme!

  5. Loved your squirrely triangles...LOVE this one too! Scrap pack, of course! MUST try one!!!

  6. Great twist on the 9-patch. Love the wonky window pane look the white creates. I think the back looks pretty cool, too. It's like having 2 quilts in one. Great finish!

  7. It looks great. The colours are very summery - sand and water. And I really like it when the back of a quilt looks equally as good as a quilt top.

  8. I love how a simple cut and restitch freshens up the 9-patch. Did you come up with this? Kudos to you!!! I am so tempted to stop everything I am doing right now to try this out. I am your newest fan!!!
