One top nearly done
Quite a while back, I won a fantabulous giveaway from Meredith. I won a Glace layer cake and some groovy yardage, again, yummy glace! I looked at it for a good while, petted it, stroked it and fell in love with it. I finally decided it wasn't going anywhere...except my bed. Meet my new Christmas quilt, just for me! I haven't measured it, but it just fits on my queen mattress top, as is.
If you use a layer cake for the disappearing 9 patch, you need to add 12 extra squares for a bigger top. Mine is 2 squares wide and 3 squares down. I had to fold them in half to cut them, lol, big suckers! Then my friends, the Quilter Sisters, recommended I put a "stop" point on before the border. Great idea! Thanks Sisters! I had another top in mind for quite a while. It didn't turn out at all what I had hoped for. Fine, it's really ugly! I'm going to have to think about it before I can post a pic of it....like I said, it's really ugly!!
