It's a Flimsy! Zig Zag Nine Patch

Zig Zag Nine Patch
94 x 94
It's a flimsy! 


 It started with a bin of 3 inch nine patches and a Google search of vintage quilts.  I landed on a picture of an antique Ohio Amish quilt from the Darwin D. Bearley collection and decided I would try to make one like it. 
And now back to searching...I have a lot of nine patches left.

That's a really fun way to set the nine patch blocks! The solids make your eye travel up and down and around. Nice pattern! Have fun choosing your next pattern.

This flimsy is fabulous! Makes me want to dig right back into the scrap bins. One doesn't usually associate this type of design and scrappiness with Amish quilts, this is very special.

Reminds me of flashes of lightning with those solids taking your eye down the quilt. A super way of using those small 9 patches. Another super finish! More of your block stashes depleted.

Wonderful! I'm glad you showed the last closeup because I was driving myself crazy trying to figure out how you assembled it.

Beautiful finish! Are you sure you don't have a design wall?

Love that streak of lightning setting! What a beauty!
Have fun picking the next one - there are an infinite number of ways to set 9-patches, which makes it very hard to choose!

What a great setting! Also, a great way to use those nine patches.

Omigosh - it is HUGE and you still have nine-patches left?!?!?!!!!!

Quilter Kathy said...

That is stunning! I'm trying to figure out how you pieced it!

Awesome scrappy goodness.
Super quilt woman strikes again!

Julie in GA said...

Wow! That's a huge quilt and a ton of nine-patches! Do you have any idea how many are int here? (Maybe it's better not to know.) Nine-patch quilts are one of my favorites.

Oh that is wonderful! You have made a beautiful quilt. So inviting for a snuggle. I am really partial to scrap quilts. There is just something special about them. Good job!

Kat Scribner said...

This is a gorgeous quilt! All that intricate piecing, truly timeless.

Vic in NH said...

What a big beautiful quilt! You are an inspiration to me!

Cynthia Brunz Designs said...

Wow! This turned out to be so much fun. I have a feeling if I attempted this design I would be getting my seam ripper out a LOT. Great job!

Kaja said...

Fantastic - and you have sparked off all sorts of ideas for me. Thanks!

Jayne Jacobson said...

I love this! But am struggling trying to figure out how to finish the sides and ends.
