Baby Mystery Quilt

Back last year I took the plunge and joined my local Modern Quilt Guild. Well not exactly my local but near enough and its on a day that suits me. To be honest I wasn't sure if the all sew together environment would suit me and my anxieties but I'm fallen lucky in that the whole group is made of very welcoming ladies and I feel completely at home. I really look forward to my Sunday of sewing each month. 

Anyway I digress. Last month we did a mystery quilt based on the disappearing nine patch block. I'm afraid I didn't take many pictures but we made 9 nine patch blocks ( using 5" charms)  and using a further 18 neutral charm squares came up with this. I used brights and scrappy low volume for my neutral.

 I managed to finish the top in group and as I didn't have too much else to do ( who am I kidding) I pinned and quilted in the week or so that followed.

I did straight lines across the top following the corners and centres of the small squares. I then did a motif in the centre of the square on point. I also did half the motif in the edge neutral triangles. All in a pale grey.

I found an alphabet print in my stash for the backing

and used a spotty print for the binding. 

I now need to find a child/baby to gift this one too. 

Hopefully in this month's meeting in a week or so's time there will be a parade of these. I'll try and remember to get a picture of them all. 


  1. What a sweet quilt Gina! I love that motif you did in the centre squares, and the backing is perfect!

  2. Great job! I love it! The binding is fantastic!

  3. I'm glad the guild is working out for you . I recently went along to ours too and I intend joining. Lovely quilt too

  4. Gina my local modern guild is a really lovely inviting group as well. I'm glad you enjoyed yours and hope you continue to. I love the baby quilt, it reminds me of those wooden building shapes for kids. Do you get the triangles by cuttting the nine patch on the diagonal?

  5. Hi Gina,
    What a cute quilt - I love the pattern and especially the fabrics you chose. Nice and bright and happy, and the binding is sweet. I hope someone enjoys it soon. ~smile~ Roseanne
