Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

Completed another one for the first of the month.....

Just took this one off the long arm. 
This is my sister-in-law's alternating 9-patch. 
We belonged to a group eons ago. I think she said 10 years ago, but I hate to think it has been that long that we exchanged these Robyn Pandolph 9-patches.  I have all these blocks plus more that I haven't done anything with yet. (omg!  I just checked and I have over 133 of these blocks!!!)  I have to give her credit....her quilt turned out really great.  I love all her scrappy solid blocks.  This quilt looks so warm in its gold tones.  It is soooo her. 
Anyways, I quilted it in a panto called "ribbons and roses". 
Here's a real close up.
I think Robyn Pandolph fabrics from 10 years ago (sigh), just called for this floral panto. 
Here's a pic of the backing.
I hope she loves it as much as I do.  It may just have inspired me to get to my 9-patches and do something with them. 
I do know that I am going to cut up some shabby chic fabrics soon  so that I can use this panto for myself,  too. 
Well, onto the next quilt.  The next one loaded is the challenge quilt....dual challenge quilt, so I won't be showing it as soon as it is off the long arm, but I do have a couple more smaller quilts that are waiting in line after that and hopefully I will be showing you those very soon. 
Hope you enjoyed the mini show-n-tell. 


  1. Very pretty! Love the softness the yellow fabric adds to the nine patch blocks!

  2. What a pretty quilt!
    The floral design you quilted was a perfect choice for it.
