Here is my entry for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. It is a quilt that I designed to each this summer in Las Vegas. It is a variation of a disappearing nine patch. I used five inch squares to make nine patches and then slashed them, added sashing and sewed them back together. If you look closely, the sashing weaves across the quilt. After quilting, I used leftover strips of the sashing to make a colorful scrappy binding.
I really enjoyed making this quilt. In Las Vegas, I taught a group of 35 people how to make it. I learned a lot from that experience about trying to write a pattern that is understood by a lot of people with different levels of experience. The most difficult part of this quilt is to make sure you follow the pressing directions so that the blocks easily go together and that was the hardest part to communicate.
