I wrote about this quilt in several WIP posts over the summer but never posted the finish. Probably because the second it was finished, my oldest daughter whisked it away and I haven't seen it since! Well, she was the intended recipient.
I hand-quilted it using various shades of blue (basically what I had in my stash) BUT I only quilted it to the batting - I really don't know what I was thinking. Well, actually I was thinking that I wouldn't have to bury a bunch of knots but I obviously didn't think it through to the next step.
I ultimately decided to hand-tie the quilt using perle cotton and so it all worked out in the end.
This was a fun quilt to make plus it was actually quick and easy but I think if I were to make it again, I would limit my color pattern (like Elizabeth did in hers). I mean, I know it is called crazy nine patch but I think with all these colors it might be a bit too crazy. Luckily, as I have written many times before, the recipient, my oldest daughter, loves it and told me she wouldn't change a thing. Hope those rose-colored glasses she sees all my quilts through don't break anytime soon.
