Finished just in time for Christmas by Abbey for her poodle Stella.
It's looking a bit wavy in photo but hadn't been pressed. The last stitch in binding had just been sewn down and we didn't really spread it out before the photo. I can't take another one as it is all wrapped up
Scrappy nine patch blocks
white for centre then scrappy pink and red all cut 2.5 inches
(each block finished 6 inches)
White sashing 2 inches wide
polka dot border 2 .5 inches
polka dot binding cut 2.5 inches
I'm a real fan of nine patches and by putting a white centre gives the traditional 9 patch a different look.
Abbey loves using white as her background in quilts and it is terribly hard to find white on white quilt fabric. (I use cream) but white does give a lovely fresh look.
The red, white and pink colour scheme suits Stella just perfect.
She is one loved poodle.
A rolly polly of approval.
stencils she brought I think she said this one was called fairy wings. It was the first time she tried free motion quilting - and she taught herself. A poodle quilt was just the right size to learn on. Isn't she a clever girl!
Linking up to Finish it up Friday
