This is actually the 2nd of two 9-patches that I made at the same time. The first one was also my first attempt at straight line quilting on a lap quilt (I had only done pillows up to that point). The first one turned out OK ... there were definitely some learnings in it; I am much happier with how this one came out!
The washed quilt meausures ~50" x 61". My inspiration was their ocean-side wedding ... with greens, browns, sand and even a little light blue to represent the ocean. The finished squares are 2" for the smaller squares and 6" for the larger off-white squares.
The straight line quilting went about twice as fast this time. In part because I just got better and in part because I used my cabin machine with the built-in walking foot instead of the add-on. I am really happy with how the 'grid' came out on the back.
I used Kona Sweet pea for the piecing on the back and for the binding.
All the best
