3" Nine Patches
My 3" nine patch cuties have a home! I finished piecing the quilt top late this afternoon and it feels good to have another one done. Actually it feels good to have another fat quarter bundle/tower out of the cupboard and into a quilt. :-) That makes me extremely happy! LOL This is was a quick and fun pattern from Moda University.
Thanks to Evelyn I've been doing quite a bit of thinking about my pile of quilt tops that are waiting to be quilted. I've been trying to decide whether or not my quilt tops are UFO's and everyone has been kind and told me that they're my quilt tops so I can call them whatever I want. LOL I appreciate that very much. However, Evelyn left a comment regarding her definition of UFO's and the following profound statement really touched my heart. Evelyn said " You can't USE a top, even if the top is technically done. I don't want my "tops" to end up in a yard sale some day - BUT finished QUILTS are cherished for years!!!" Evelyn, you are absolutely right - you can't use a quilt top and while I don't necessarily make heirlooms I do want to leave my quilting legacy to my daughter. (although she and my DH tease me that if I go first they are going to set up on a corner and hang my quilts on a clothesline and sell them - LOL) So, I've decided that over the next couple of days I'm going to organize all my quilt tops with backings and such and prepare to quilt them. Evelyn, thank you very much!
