Chevron Nines

This was a good weekend to sew, rained most of the time. These are Bonnie Hunter's Rick Rack Nines from Leaders and Enders, probably my favorite book. I am thinking they will make a cute baby quilt. I am really liking these smaller projects.

I got this done and think when I add borders it will be just right for a special baby. Not sure what color border yet but am leaning towards a purple with maybe a yellow or pink inner border. I have all my rows put together just need to add the half blocks and setting triangles. What do you think?

Happy Sewing


  1. What nice, jelly-bean colors!
    I've made RR9s twice -- once with 2.5" squares which turned out to be a HUGE quilt. (I got carried away with leaders-and-enders.) The second time I used 1.5" squares which was much more manageable. Suggestion: try horizontal rows rather than vertical.

  2. Looking bright and pretty! I made a huge one too with bigger nines. Your plan sounds good.

  3. I think it will make a happy quilt. I have become a Bonnie fan and this is one of the quilts I want to do too.

  4. What do I think? I think its wonderful! Your plan for the border sounds like a good idea.

  5. Nifty use of scraps. I'd make the inner border yellow to keep the quilt gender neutral since you don't know who will get it. And I think yellow fits better with the bright palette.

  6. thanks all for your comments and I really like the idea of running the rows horizontal.

  7. Love this scrappy colorful quilt. Great job. BTW, I've become a "FOLLOWER" of your blog!!
    Take care and have a great rest of the week.

    1. thank you so much, I don't get to blog as much as I used to but am trying to do better about sharing.

  8. Oh this quilt is on my to do list.
