Nine Patch with Applique' Finish

This is my Nine Patch and Applique' quilt finished.  This one was a long time in the making, but it is one of my favorites.   The borders are hand appliqued'.





I machine quilted it in a diagonal grid and echo quilted around the applique'.




The quilt is approximately 60 inches square, and I really like using it on my dining room table.




The pattern for this quilt is in Quick and Easy Scrap Quilts by Leisure Arts (1996).  I didn't start the quilt the year the book was published, but it has been a UFO for a long time.

 

I'm linking up with Link A Finish Friday over at Richard and Tanya Quilts blog.

I hope you are taking a little time out to stitch today.

Thanks for stopping by!
