Here it is...my last post on the disappearing 9 patch quilt because it is finished!! Not a bad turnaround time since I just started playing with the fabric and making some experimental blocks at the beginning of August! The finished quilt turned out to be 54" x 76".
Here is a photo of the back of one of the corners.
I had a very fun time quilting it, especially the borders. I used the hooked feathers that Sally Terry describes in her book Hooked on Feathers. As always, I practised with my pencil and old computer paper first, and when I felt comfortable, jumped right in to the quilting.
And I did not have one single problem with thread breakage, even at top speeds, because I used Aurofil on the top and in the bobbin....have I mentioned how much I love that thread?!?
