Disappearing Nine-patch...it looks like a tricky design, but I see how the pieces are joined--your photos always have such clear detail. You know, your project was never meant to be limited to a chair seat--your cushion cover never would have done the pattern, or your handiwork, justice. I love the pieced back and the tiny-dotted binding, and the summery flavor it brings to the room! Thank you for sharing!


Tracy I love your quilt! It is so pretty. I got some fabrics to make a quilt just before I moved down here. I have not decided just what I am going to do with them yet. I have a few plans mulling around in my mind. Not long now before your trip. You must be getting very excited! I hope we can talk before you leave. If we don't, I hope you have a lovely ,safe, and uneventful trip filled with lots of wonderful meetings and experiences and joy!! I love you loads and loads!! xxoo


What an ultra yummy quilt! Congrats on a crafty job well done.


Love the cheery colors here, Tracy. And that polka-dot binding is just so sweet. The perfect touch.


Oh Tracy this is really really beautiful, I only dream of ever making something like this!
This morning I got up very early & have been making James' birthday cake as I didn't have time yesterday! So that is what I've been doing & making, we are planning on a day out today & I'm dreaming that my Mummy will be fine today as it is her first chemo session.
Have a lovely day


Hi dear Tracy,
It looks absolutely gorgeous!! So sweet and comfy!
I am planing a crochet granny square blanket, but this time I truly mean to finish it! LOL
Lots of love and hugs,


Well done Tracy- it looks gorgeous! You must be so pleased with it. So snuggly on a cold evening too.

I've got birthday present makings still on the go and physio today.


it's gorgeous, I love it xxx

hi tracy
another inspiring blog entry - how clever you are and everything is so carefully done.

Very pretty. I like that pink and white polkadot trim too. It is fun.

I am not very creative at the moment. Too many busy things to keep up with...graduation, trips to the Dr with my MIL, and the end of our school year with two more evaluations to go.

I will enjoy creativity by way of watching your many projects.

Have a great day!

Oh my, this is one georgeous quilt, Tracy. It has a summer time feel and look with the pastelle colors.Almost like a painting. Is it going to be used on your bed or as a wallhang?


Your quilt is beautiful!
I'm about to start working on my first quilt and am having a look around for ideas.

oooo it is SO pretty Tracy! Love the colour combinations and that polka dot binding is adorable. You are so clever, I've never tried quilting but it makes me want to give it a go! But I must concentrate, too many ideas too little time ... and energy! Hugs, Catherine xx


Beautiful job Tracy. That will be a perfect throw for cozying up by the fires or cool summer nights. I am not a huge quilt maker. I think the largest I have made is a bit bigger than that. I am thinking that eventually a twin or queen size is in order with some bright fun fabrics. Enjoy the warmth of your cozy quilt.

I love 9 patch! The quilt on my bed is the same pattern, made by Amanda some years ago as a Christmas gift, with kimono fabrics.


Tracy, your quilt is beautiful. I love the colors. I am just about ready to add the binding to a quilt I've been working on. It's just the best feeling when a quilt is finished, don't you think?


I love the colors! That quilt is so cute! I think it's a happy quilt.


This is a gorgeous quilt! I love both the front and the back ... but for completely different reasons. The binding is just perfect for bringing it all together. Lovely!

What a fun quilt. I really like the colors!
Have a wonderful day...


OMG tracy! Your quilt is gorgeous!!! Yipee and hooray on getting it finish just in time for summer! I am soo soo soo loving the gorgeous color and all the little details on your quilt! This reminds me that i need to work hard on my quilt. Thanks for the inspiriational push! Have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!


It's beautiful, Tracy! What an accomplishment. I treasure each and every quilt I own that was made for me by a talented woman in my life because I know how much thought, care, and love goes into every square. The colors you used and the beautiful pattern make this so special. I, too, love the polka-dot border! Just stunning, my friend! xoxo Gigi


Great job, Tracy! You are very multi-talented! I love the bright colors and the cute border. There is just something so comforting about a homemade quilt, isn't there? We just took about 40 homemade tied quilts with us to Nicaragua and gave them to poor families. (I didn't make any of them, but some ladies in my neighborhood did!) I wondered why we were taking quilts to a country that is 90 degrees F. year-round. But there's just something about a quilt that brings comfort and love--and everybody needs one right?!!

WOW! Such joyful color, perfection and artistry! This is a happy photo to my spirit!


Tracy it turned out wonderfully! I'm thinking about a quilt myself right now. I've been saving all the pieces of fabric that are too big to throw away and not big enough to really use for anything else. Thinking about cutting them into 2 or 3 sizes of squares and rectangles and seeing what I end up with after a while.
