This is my absolute favorite quilt I’ve made to date. It’s an incredibly simple alternating 9-patch design, and it came together so quickly, but I am in love with the finished look.

I chose this simple pattern because I was running out of time, and this was the final quilt I needed to finish before Christmas. I didn’t work from a pattern, but I was inspired by this 9-patch quilt made by Red Pepper Quilts.

This is the largest quilt I’ve made to date at 80 inches by 80 inches. This time, I took care to make sure that the patterns were facing in the same direction to avoid a super crazy random look. I think it made the finished product look much more polished.

I love working with 9-patch blocks so much that I’m working on designing more projects that will go together this quickly and easily and look as polished and intricate without being difficult.

As much as I loved this quilt, I was happy to give it away to my sister-in-law and her husband for Christmas.
