F9P Baby Quilt

Updated 3/28/16: This quilt is my OMG for March so I'm linking up with Heidi at Red Letter Quilts for. Check out everyone else's successful goals & finishes over there.

We're supposed to get a lot of rain over the next few days. A lot - maybe some flash flooding in low-lying areas.

I hurried to finish this small baby quilt so I could take some outdoor photos, but the wind didn't cooperate yesterday and the sun was bright. For what they're worth, here are the pics:

The wind was just too much so I gave up. This morning I thought I'd try again. It's not actually raining, but it's very damp, so I put down plastic to protect the quilt from dampness and dirt on my deck. It's grey and cloudy today so it makes the colors in the quilt look more pastel.

This was a UFO from a few years ago, but it became a priority to finish. My hairstylist is expecting a baby girl and she's decorating the baby's room in coral and peach, including Kona Salmon. The prints in this F9P coordinate with Kona Salmon, particularly the one I used on the back.

So now I just have to get a card and a small baby trinket, and gift wrap it all so I can give it to the mom-to-be at my next appointment.

I did not take in-process photos because this was a UFO that was started before I began blogging. If anyone is interested in a tutorial for the Framed Nine Patch process, leave a comment. It uses nine fat quarters plus backing and binding and finishes at 36".


  1. So pretty and I love the backing!

  2. This is so sweet. I'm glad you found a reason to finish it. I love the backing, too--paisley is one of my favorite fabric designs. And of course, the striped binding is perfect with all those other fabrics.

  3. It is a fantastic finish and I am sure it will be well appreciated and loved. I think the photos turned out quite nice and I like how differently things can look in slightly different light levels and conditions.

  4. This is such a perfect baby quilt! The colors are lovely and that binding! I would be very interested in a tutorial; the design is what instantly attracted me to this quilt.

  5. I love the quilt! The colors coordinate so well together and the striped binding pulls everything together. I would love to see a tutorial for this pattern. Great job!

  6. Beautiful quilt and I know what you mean about photographing in sunlight - nightmare. I can just imagine how pretty the colours are though - they're beautiful in the pictures but I suspect a little less pastel in real life??? I'd love to see the tutorial too. BTW, I think the backing fabric is exquisite - lucky baby!

  7. Lovely quilt, a tutorial would be great.

  8. What a gorgeous quilt and gift. The colours blend so beautifully and pop where they should. I'd appreciate seeing a tutorial for a lovely twist on a usual nine patch.

  9. Congrats on the finish! It turned out beautifully.

  10. I'm intrigued by this pattern - the Framed Nine Patch. Have you published it anywhere?

  11. I would be interested in the tutorial. This quilt is beautiful.
    Thank you,

  12. This is adorable! Love the colors, and yes the Framed Nine Patch looks like a fun block!
