2009 Projects ~ #40 Fig & Plum Sofa Quilt

I have to say that I love (really I LOVE) this quilt! I know, you are thinking, she always says that when she finishes a project...ah well, that is true too.

This pattern came to me by searching blogs one day. I came across this great post for an easy peasy pattern, the disappearing 9 patch.
For my quilt, I took it one more step & I didn't put the 4 patches back together with their original mates. It gave this a much more scrappy look, I think.
Here is another variation of the pattern I like too. It has hearts in the squares. You could piece that, or even applique for extra fun!
I quilted this quilt in the teeny stipple that I hope you can see in the closeup. I LOVE this fabric line, Fig & Plum by Joanna Figeroa for Moda; actually the color palate of Fig Tree & Co is usually right up my alley. The outside border & backing (same paisley print) is from an older Fig Tree & Co collection, Folklorique. I quilted it with a varigated pastel thread, top & bottom.
These pics are pre-wash, because I just couldn't wait to show you :)
Off to the laundry room!

OH MY, that is a beautiful quilt!! I really love how you split up your d9p blocks. The colors are just so pretty, I'm almost speechless! I just want to reach through my screen and touch it. :-)

Shannon, you did SUCH a fabulous job on this one! It is simply beautiful!
I didn't know that you were supposed to put the 4 patsches back together in the quilt. I thought you just made the 9 patch cut it up and threw the quilt together however you saw fit. Hum, maybe I didn't really read the insructions! ;)
