WIP Wednesday: Splitting the Difference

I am typing this out frantically between calls for work because DAGNABBIT I’m going to get it posted on a Wednesday. I also officially have a Pile Up - three tops to be quilted!  I think this one is going to be first finished because it’s smallest.  And because it’s on top of the pile!

Split Nine Patch quilt topThis is made with split nine patch blocks- 32 of those and 4 straight-up nine patches.  I used the same yellow with blue/green floral print for the center of all the split nine patches and a yellow for the HSTs on the corners of the blocks.  From there it’s scrap happiness in blues and greens for the rest of the squares.

I cut this out last minute to take to retreat in case I ran out of projects, and I got all the HSTs made and some of the blocks put together on the last day. Thank goodness I did- it’s a super happy quilt, and it’s going to be a Christmas present for our neighbors. Their kids fight over the baby quilts I’ve given them, so I’m trying to reduce the drama for the parents!

  1. totally gorgeous quilt. I haven’t seen one of those either. Wow. Would love to source the pattern. It looks like it could be a great one for using up scraps. I have a draw of 2.5″ squares calling for a project.

  2. Super cute! I love the effect of keeping the HSTs and the center squares consistent. I really had to look at it to see how it all went together - it looks more complex.

    It is a very happy quilt. You have some lucky neighbors!
