Vintage Nine Patch | Sharon Keightley Quilts

Its been a while since I have written a blog post, we are currently locked down and you would think there would be time to write, sew and do all the things you wish you had time for, but I find I am busier than ever. (and dare I say, enjoying some time out at home)

This week I finally go around to working on some patterns that have been waiting to be published for quite some time now. The Vintage Nine Patch quilt has been a real favourite of mine, I loved every step of making this one. It was published in Todays quilter magazine a while back, so if you have been collecting their wonderful magazines you may already have the pattern.

The inspiration for this quilt came from a small picture of part of an antique quilt, made with the nine patch block. I think what inspired me was the use of colour and of course the wonderful use of the flying geese blocks in the border.

I found some wonderful large scale floral prints to use for the alternate blocks and setting triangles in the border. (I just love large scale floral prints, mixed into my quilts) A scrappy mixture of fabrics from my stash for the nine patch blocks, I had so much fun choosing the mix of fabrics for these simple but stunning blocks. It's hard to resist that wonderful selection of gold, yellows and chrome coloured fabrics for the flying geese border to finish off this quilt. Using a large mixture of fabrics that are of the same colour or tone give a fabulous impact, and you never need to worry about running short of a specific fabric. You just add more. That's a win win for me....

I hope you enjoy my pictures of this quilt and are inspired to make your own Vintage Nine Patch quilt. You can find the pattern here.

Thread choices for invisible machine applique
Thread choices for invisible machine applique

Invisible machine applique seems to be mostly associated with either smoke or clear monopoly or nylon threads. When starting my journey with invisible machine applique these are the threads I used too. Now of course there are so many wonderful threads available, many of them suitable. The only thing that may be of concern is that you need a variety of colours, with monopoly smoke and clear threads there are only two colour choices, therefore limiting how many colours you need. Read more about my thread choices.
