For this special blog hop I decided to use only the double nine patch blocks from the Omigosh pattern. These blocks are made from 1" squares, which finish at .5" when sewn into the quilt.
Here it is laying on the floor in the kitchen...
Quilt statistics: there are 1,845 tiny 1" squares in this quilt and it measures 49.5" square.
I learned that it is hard to photograph a quilt with so much white in it and still be able to see the quilting. I quilted a diagonal grid using coloured threads in the double nine patch blocks and white thread through the white alternate squares.
I eyeballed the double 9 patch stitching, but marked the line to stitch across the open white squares using a hera marker. It doesn't leave any residue on the quilt but just makes a slight indentation in the fabric to follow. I marked each line as I came to it... mark, quilt, mark, quilt, etc.
Here is the fun label that I made for the back corner using up a few more 1" squares. My quilty friends decided it should be called "Scrap Rescue 911".
