My niece Leah’s quilt top

I had to lay it out on the bed to get a feel for the dimensions. This portion of the top has been done for years. I am adding blocks to the sides so it has more drape.

The nine-patches are complete but not all of them are set in the black or white background. These blocks will alternate in sets of three. It looks really great when I lay them  out on the floor. I have to trim the blocks a little so they fit properly.  It’s all in the math but I am going to eyeball it and tweak it until it looks right. Ah, I may do a little division in the process to center everything.

About three weeks ago I worked on the pieced back to this quilt. I tried something new.  I have been working in strips of ninepatches between solid red fabric.  It looks good but I want to personalize it. More to come.
