My fellow guild member and quilter, Georganna, finished Rick Rack Nines and I picked it up today. Sneak peak pics of the border had me very pleased and I was eager to see the whole quilt.
I chose Baptist Fans for this very scrappy quilt made of 9" swap blocks I finally put together years after the blocks were made by the Quiltbuddies Yahoo Group I was in.
More of the endless cheddar fabric in the borders. Georganna said the borders demanded special treatment...
I think the cables are a great choice. The green print backing was a Road to California find from Pineapple Fabrics, 108" wide backing. Georganna commented that it had a very nice "hand", and I agree. The quilt just fits on our Cal King bed. The inspiration setting was from Bonnie Hunter's Rick Rack Nines quilt (Adventures with Leaders and Enders book) but my blocks are a lot bigger. Very excited to have this finished top finally become a real quilt that we can use. Hubby Grant likes it too, bonus! I have a lot of binding to make and apply so I'd better get to it :)
