Square Dance

This is a disappearing 9-patch pattern, from a magazine--this pattern uses 1/2 of a jelly roll (2 1/2" strips). 

This quilt belongs will be a wall hanging in the office of the church.  It was fun, because in addition to using some jelly roll strips, we used scraps from the comfort quilts we make for people in the congregation, and from the Stoles made for the ministers last year.  There were many hands involved in making this quilt.

And I guess it was fun, as many of the quilters went on to make their own.  Some of the ladies made theirs entirely from scraps.  I enjoy seeing the same quilt in different's another Disappearing 9 patch if you want to see a comparison.

Gold Magnifico thread, wool batting.  Line dancing for the quilting.  It will be bound in the same dark navy as the tiny cornerstone squares.

And this time I had a picture of the quilt 'pre-quilting'.  It's a neat comparison.  So often I wish afterwards that I had one,  but by then its too late ;)
