I love quilts! And by no stretch of the imagination do I consider myself a quilter because all my prior attempts have been, well, duds. They never seemed to work out right for a multitude of reasons. So I just put that in the failed sewing attempts pile and do so enjoy oohing and aahing over others quilty creations.

Then I read this tutorial by MareMare on the Disappearing 9 Patch (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422253.0#axzz2dgUNUHtM) and thought what the heck! Why not give it another go. MareMares directions were so easy to follow!!!

Im super, duper excited about this Disappearing 9 Patch lap quilt!!! Some of my seams dont match and the back and binding are a little off but I love it all the same. I am going to keep it for sitting on the sofa watching tv during the winter.
Here it is in all its imperfected glory!



Here is the top finished before backing and binding. I used black polar fleece for the backing and made the binding from 3 strips of plain red fabric from the stash. The fabrics for the topper were fat quarters by Mary Engelbritt and some others from my stash.



I learned so much and am schemingI mean planning, on using this pattern for some baby blankets and my girls each want to make one for their beds.

You did a wonderful job. I know how it is to feel like you are not doing some perfectly, especially when it comes to quilting, but when you and your girls are snuggling under it this winter all anyone is going to notice is a beautiful, warm quilt.
