Design Wall #21 - Split Nine Patch

My UFO for June is on my design wall today. I wrote about this quilt last April (yes...2011!) in this blog post.
The pattern is called Nine Patch Split, and is from Bonnie Hunter's page of free patterns - click here.
Each block was made from fabric kits I cut out and distributed to volunteers in my quilt guild. I had to track down 2 of the missing blocks, and fix a couple of mistakes before I could continue to work on this project. I finally got the blocks sewed together, which went fairly well considering that these blocks were made by 12 different quilters, and everyone has their own version of a 1/4" seam.
My next step is to pick out and sew on some borders to increase the size for a comfort quilt. 
Check out the other design wall posting over at Patchwork Times.

Such a fun pattern, I can see why it became a UFO though, with all the challenges you have worked through. Are you going to do a nice cheddar border to match the HST triangles or a beautiful blue to calm it all down?

What a great group project. Isn't it amazing how these things turn into UFOs so fast! Can't wait to see what you do next.

Looks like you used up some shirtings to make the block kits. Very cute pattern, from Bonnie how could it not be cute?

Very nice. The dash of orange really makes the quilt shine.

The colors are fabulous in this quilt. Love the arrangement of the lights and the darks and the accent tangerine/orange/cheddar. Wonderful!

Great fabric choices. They make a very pleasing quilt and one that is suited for either a boy or girl. Good Job.
