Nine Patches and Pink Stripes=Tablemanners

Well, I told you it would go together correctly. I got started and couldn't stop. Here is my little Nine Patch with Pink Stripes. I love this little quilt. I already have the backing for this and want to quilt it soon...after the fairy quilt though. I hope you had a good Saturday. The name of this quilt in the magazine was Tablemanners...

I keep thinking I might be able to piece quick enough to do a quilt top in a day, but I don't think it will be any time soon, lol. I'll just look at yours and dream, it must be lovely to walk past your wall and see it all together

I love this quilt! It is absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to see it quilted.

Linda said...

This is an awesome quilt! Perfect use of the fabrics. May I ask where you found the pattern?

Those nine patches look great with the hourglass blocks. You sure did get it together quickly. Isn't it fun when inspiration strikes?

Amy (lilme2_99) said...

Oh, YOU! NOW you have me COMPLETELY practicing my patience and discipline! All I want to do is run downstairs, raid my scraps and make 9-paches! I LOVE the light pink hourglass connectors!!!!
What size are your 9-patches? 6" finished?
GOSH, that is a fun quilt! What is it about 9-patches? They will NEVER be out of style.

Very pretty! I'm not much of a pink person, but I could fall in love with this one!

Linda said...

Wow, thanks girls. I love this one too and I'm glad all of you like it...I fell in love with this one too.

Linda, I'll get back with you where I found this. I found it in a magazine and I'll let you know which one when I find it again.

This was not a Quilt top in a day...I worked on the 9 patches for awhile so I was just in the mood to put it all together. I am enjoying this one and yes, I have looked at it all day. I'm anxious to get it quilted but it will be awhile. I'll show you again when it's quilted. Thanks for the quilty love, Hugs, Linda

Your quilt is just gorgeous - I'm inspired! I have a lot of 9-patches from a swap - seeing the pink you have used really makes the patches pop our - love it!

Fantastic! A beautiful job!

Thim3 said...

I love this quilt...I have a lot of nine patches...please tell us where you got this pattern.

Linda said...

For the ladies that asked where I got this pattern:

This was in an old magazine. It was called Table Manners and it was in the August 1998 issue of McCall's Quilting.

Thim3, you have your settings set to no reply so I could not respond directly...thanks, Linda
