Long Arm Quilting – Disappearing 9 Patch

When I first got Spike, a very good family friend sent me a quilt top she made for charity, complete with backing and batting. She said it was something I could practice on. I was so grateful for her trusting me with something that she made. It was the first quilt I loaded after getting my new and awesome Red Snappers installed. Speaking of which, I will NEVER pin again!

Close up - disappearing 9 patch - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comI love this quilting design, it is so much fun and versatile for the different sizes and shapes that are in this quilt pattern and the yellow thread popped just enough in some places and receded perfectly in other places.

Back - disappearing 9 patch - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comI love how the quilting stands out on the back and makes all kinds of interesting patterns!

I will likely be accepting customer quilts this summer! Just working on the business end of things! Can’t wait to get started!

Have a lovely Monday!

    That looks great, Melissa! I’m so glad you liked the RS, as I figured I would like them, and I hated the pinning process. =) I’m so excited to see you launching your business soon. As soon as I have any money, I’m sure I’ll have quilts. LOL

    That was a great practice quilt! A win-win all the way around! I really like the red snappers, too. If I were doing a juried quilt, I’d pin. But otherwise, they work great!
