Oh how sweet it is .... two UFO's from June, 2010 .... finished! It seems like I havent been here, but I've really been busy sewing.
A little history: I was cleaning out some EQ files and came across one that showed more potential. I played in the file, until I came up with this pattern. Originally, it was a design which graduated with steps; hence the name. Then I added 9-patches and titled my pattern "Steppin to the Nines". You know how these things evolve. LOL I shared this pattern with my Cbees group and we had an on-line workshop weekend. It was lots of fun and lots of STT9 tops were created.
This first STT9 quilt is finished with a diagonal quilting grid. My sheltie, Kody, managed to squeeze into the photo, in the bottom left corner. Isn't he a doll! The quilt is about 54" square.
The 2nd STT9 quilt is just a bit smaller because of the different border treatment. It is quilted in a straight grid. It is about 46" square.
Still, these are two finishes, all washed and cuddly and ready for children. How sweet it is!
