Purple Mountain Majesties
(Split Nine Patch)
60 x 72
Back in 2016 I was one of the August Block Lotto winners of Split Nine Patch blocks in a purple, gray and white colorway.
I knew I wanted a nice sized donation quilt so I made enough blocks to add to my winnings to equal 120 blocks to be set 10 x 12. For the longest time I could not decide on a layout because there are so many different ways to use Split Nine Patches. Actually you can use a Split Nine Patch any way you would use a 6 inch HST (half square triangle).
I quilted it on my DSM.
I used a variegated purple thread and quilted swirls in the purple zigzags.
I used light gray thread and just kind of quilted in some squiggly lines.
The backing is pieced with two completely different fabrics...
...but I think they blend together rather nicely.
Lots of different purple fabrics were used to make the binding.
That's finish #13 for September!
My OMG (One Monthly Goal) is to see how many quilts I can finish in September.
And on to the next!
(How many will I finish in September????)
