Mod Girl

I had to keep this one under wraps until I could deliver it to it's new home.  I made this disappearing 9 patch baby quilt for a good friend of mine who is due any day now.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do when I saw her purple nursery but then I found this fabulous Mod Girl print hidden in my massive Sis Boom  collection.

Since I was only using 3 fabrics for the disappearing 9 Patch I could strip piece my blocks so they went super fast.  Cut the fabric into 5" strips.  You need 6 strips of the Paisley Print, 7 strips of the Coral Pink and 2 strips of the Brown.  Assemble Strip Set A:  Paisley, Pink, Paisley and Strip Set B: Pink, Brown, Pink.  Subcut these into 5" strips and assemble in to blocks of ABA.  Cut the blocks in both directions through the center and reassemble.

For the quilting I went with my go to fave heart paisleys.  I may have discovered the reason for my frequent thread emergencies...  this pattern eats thread.  I was on my 6th spool of Aurifil when I finished this!  I'm going to start buying it buy the box when I'm quilting with it:-)

For the back and binding I threw in some Sherbet Pips from my stash.  The pinks work perfectly together:-)

Can't wait to meet you Baby L!!!
