A Blooming 9-Patch Kit
Don't you feel as if you're standing on a beach looking out into the ocean with these fabric color combos?! When we look at them we just see the waves moving back and forth, to and fro. In fact we decided to place Ocean View in two spots within the quilt. We even think if you wish to fussy cut it for those 4 1/4" squares. well we added a bit more fabric to the kit so that you can. Most of these fabrics come from McKenna Ryan's Sand in My Shoes collection for Robert Kaufman. We think this would make a lovely Blooming 9-Patch. |
The colors are blues, cream with a touch of brown. The center of the quilt starts with the fabric on the left and blooms outward towards the right.
About the Fabric Kit: Total yardage for this particular kit is 10 3/4 yards to allow you to fussy cut the 2 rows using Ocean View, as well as including the binding. We give you an extra 1/8 yard of each fabric so you will have plenty! Why not add the perfect thread to sew it together: Aurifil Thread - 1422 yards. If you haven't tried this thread yet, it is the perfect opportunity. The fabric on the far right is the center of the quilt or fabric #1 if you are looking at the pattern in the book.
Enlarge to a Queen Sized Bedspread, you will want to add a 4” to 6” border before adding the binding. It will require an additional 1 1/2 yards for the border.
Fabric Kit does NOT include the Pattern! The pattern is in the book Traditions With a Twist, so if you don't have the book you will have to buy it.
By the way, this pattern takes advantage of rotary cutting and strip piecing for template free quiltmaking and we highly recommend the Cutting Edge Tool for error free strip cutting. With them, make every cut perfectly the same without thinking!!!
