Finished my Black/White Nine-Patches

Here is the third Block Lotto quilt finished. It took a lot of design wall play to figure out how these blocks wanted to live together. The blocks looked better to me when they were “fenced in” with my hand-dyed fabrics. Each one became its own quilt — and the workmanship showed up so nicely. My long-arm quilter, Charlene Koppenol, designed the pattern for the dark blocks. It looks like globes and fits the international flavor of Block Lotto. I showed the quilt at my guild meeting tonight and there were lots of happy sighs and murmurs. Applause, too.

  1. It is a knockout! I wish everyone could see it in person. I love what you did with the sashing and your hand dyes, so creataive. Just beautiful.

  2. The colorful scrappy border really makes those black and white blocks sparkle. Love it!
    FYI, I reduced the size of your other two photos and added them to the post so everyone can get a look at the quilting and the backing you chose for your quilt.

  3. You really brought those squares to life! Well done, again. Thank you, Sophie – it was hard to see any detail in the original picture. We computer challenged folks appreciate your help.

  4. What a great result! Glad you were a winner.

  5. Holy cow! Your sashing idea is truly amazing! Just gorgeous!!!! Thank you so much for posting pictures of it.
