I did it! Instead of starting something new, I finished the last quilt top I had in my boxes to complete.
It’s mostly because I’m not sure what I want to start next… but whatever, I’ll take it as a win.
So here’s the Scrappage Patch quilt top all wrapped up. There’s just something wonderfully classic about a simple sashed nine-patch quilt. The very first quilt Mom made me when I was about six or seven was a nine-patch sashed with pale yellow. I literally loved that blanket to death.
For this one, I chose a pale blue sashing (and I’m happy to say I have more than enough leftover to border the Rainbow quilt). I didn’t want to go with white sashing because a few of the squares have white backgrounds – same with black. Light blue seemed like a good compromise that wouldn’t clash with any of the other fabrics.
This one is intended as a Christmas present for Dave’s Mom … but for Christmas NEXT year! (Yes, I’m seriously working on presents for next year.) I already have some knitted things for her this year, and Mom’s got enough on her plate without having to whip out another of my quilts by Christmas.
So now… I guess I better decided on some new patterns to start…
