We are up to our ear’s in fabric here with the UPS truck making daily deliveries.
So, I thought I’d take a little coffee break and show you a little treasure I purchased in an ebay auction.
I just love a good scrappy project, now granted – this one is a little on the bright side for me, but it’s still neat. It’s scrappy! The fabrics and various pieces that came with this unfinished quilt top are just a treasure to look at and enjoy. When I saw this quilt up for auction on Ebay – I immediately thought of my Aunt who is making one of these quilts right now out of 1″ squares of scrap fabrics!
Here’s a picture of one of the quilt blocks included in the auction.
And a few completed nine patches:
This quilt pattern is called Jack’s Chain or Rosalia Flower Garden. It’s block #430 in Barbara Brackman’s encyclopedia of pieced quilt patterns or in BlockBase if you have that program for Electric Quilt (love those 2 programs!)
I also found this pattern in the book called “The Romance Of Double Wedding Ring Quilts” by Robert Bishop (which by the way you can pick up a copy really cheap on amazon.com right now!) In his book it’s called Amish Nine Patch Wedding Ring.
Below is the quilt shown in the book.
Well, that’s all for today. I have to get back to work. Bonnie Blue Basics III and The Cocheco Mills II collections arrived today and we need to get the bundles cut!
Have a good one!
