disappearing 9-patch


I decided to finally try a disappearing 9-patch. I loved Allison's instructions on her blog Cluck Cluck Sew.

This fabric is David Walker's Painted Robot fabric. An on-line purchase that I thought would be cute for a variety of items for lots of friends and family who have little guys. I've even got enough left to do a pillowcase for another friend's son. (Thanks for the brainstorm, Dad.)

The back is a sheet from Better Homes and Garden. I thought it was 100% cotton, but it wasn't, so I was a bit concerned that it might not shrink as much as the top. It worked out just fine and because
I bought a twin size, I've got enough left to back at least one more baby quilt.

This one goes out in the mail today to my husband's former assistant coach, who had a baby in February (yes, I know that was a long time ago). And, with the heat we've had lately, I'm not sure they'll use a quilt for covering up, more likely for laying on top of!

Still doing the give-a-way, comment before today at 9 p.m. to be eligible.

Hoping for some rain or at least a cold front to blow through today. We turned off the air because we just can't take it any more ... what do you do to beat the heat?
