Having the day off, I took some pics of my nine patch quilt top. ...With a black bird's song in my ears.
It was inspired by a quilt shown in one of Roberta Horton's books. Of course I could not resist using a lot of colour, so much unlike the original which was made in muted, beautiful colours.
It was made by a group of ladies.
Oh, well. I tried to find the book, to show the original, but I could't find it.
I started making it in 1998, and I remember sewing one of the blocks while newly engaged to my husband in early January 1999.
Without borders it measures about 80x115 inches (205x240 cm).
Pieced by hand.
A lot of borders to be attatched...
Thank you Lea and Taryn for your kind comments! Take care.
