Primary D9P

Hot off Mr. Juki and into the DONE! column is Primary D9P... the light is fading fast so I had to be really quick with the camera on these! This UFO was started in 2009 when I kept seeing tutorials online for making Double 9 Patch blocks. I had just been in a swap for 5" charms in primary colors and next thing I knew another UFO was in the making.
When I picked up this UFO again in the fall I decided to make it bigger (it's 53" x 53") so out came my charm bins and I added some different shades of red and blue to the mix.
I used a red, white and blue variegated King Tut thread for the quilting to add a little interest.
The backing fabric is a fun print I bought years ago at the Walmart in Kauai. No joke! I have no idea what I had in mind at the time (maybe board shorts for the kids when they were small?) but it sure makes me smile today. I spliced in the strip of blue to make it wide enough.

Since I liked how the yellows catch my eye across the top I used a yellow print for binding too.
This quilt will be donated to Project Linus.

  2. I've made a couple double 9-patch quilts, but they were not as bold and bright and exciting as this one. Great fabric choices! A child is going to love this one. Your backing is going to make some big smiles too. Good job, Deb.

  5. Everything abut this one worked out great. The backing is especially fun and I'm betting some kid is going to love this one. That yellow really is what makes the top come together.
