Crazy 9 Patch for Cassidy

I love those colors in this quilt. And who came up with the idea to combine turquoise with brown. I love them together. I have seen some pink with brown fabrics recently, too.'s the new black.

Mary made this CraZy9Patch quilt for her grand-daughter, Cassidy. I love that embroidered name in the top left corner. I am using PermaCore BlueJay thread top and bobbin and Soft & Bright batting.

Mary was in the Crazy 9 Patch Quilt Shop and saw a quilt on the wall that I did recently using the panto name Wandering Daisies by Jodi Beamish. It looks like dancing hearts and flowers. Very girlie. So that is what Mary wants for this quilt.

I wanted something different for the border so I got out the Circle Lord wavy lines template and made the wavy bumps. I don't know the name for them. But they are so easy to make just by shifting the wave templates over to the right after the first pass. They are so cool. I plan to turn the quilt so Ithat I can get this on all borders.

No comments:

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
