July OMG 2019 and Aunt Bea’s Parlor Update

My July OMG was to make a Disappearing Nine Patch (D9P) quilt.  Julie Cefalu’s quilt along was a fun motivator and Julie has great instructions!

I am happy to say that I completed my version of the D9P and posted about it here!  

Disappearing Nine Patch

I began working on the pattern called Aunt Bea’s Parlor sometime before January 2017 , and decided to move this project along by participating in the OMG (One Monthly Goal)  and Patchwork Times challenges.  Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching also motivated me to get stitching!

In May of 2017, I posted 12 completed embroidered blocks in a slide show here.

In October of 2017, I had all 20 of the blocks completed.  I had also begun to piece the top. I never created a slide show with the rest of the blocks, but I did show the blocks in various blog posts as I completed them.  If you want to see what they look like, simply do a search by typing ‘Aunt Bea’s Parlor’ in my search bar.  All of the posts will come up.

The partially finished top fermented in the closet until May of 2019.  Do your projects ever need this special time?  Mine often do.

Last month, I had the top completely pieced and basted into a quilt sandwich.

Since then, I have been free motion quilting on it at every opportunity that I could.

The Supervisor… She put a stop to the machine quilting until she could thoroughly inspect it.

Disappearing Nine Patch Update

I joined Julie Cefalu’s Disappearing Nine Patch Quilt Along, and have really enjoyed the process.

I have completed turning my 20 nine patch blocks into disappearing nine patch blocks. Fun!

I have also sewn all of these blocks into a flimsy!  It was windy, but I did manage to get a couple of photos.

July OMG Goal 2019

I have never made a Disappearing Nine Patch (D9P) quilt.  Don’t ask me why this has been on my bucket list; it just has.

So when I saw that Julie Cefalu was hosting a D9P quilt along, I decided that now was the time to make one.

Julie’s instructions, diagrams, tips and even a size chart (for 5″ charm squares) is making an easy project just that much easier.  I really appreciate her efforts!

I have fabric that I want to use up (and thread, too), so I am making blocks with choices that I would definitely not normally choose.  That’s okay…someone somewhere will like it, and I am learning about value and design.

I have sewn 20 nine patch blocks.

I have even ‘spun’ the intersecting seams!

My goal for July is to cut these blocks up and sew them back together into a flimsy.

Thank you, Julie, for the diversion and the fun!
