Double 9 Patch Quilt Along

It is time for another fun quilt along from the Fat Quarter Shop. This one is the Double 9 Patch.

I chose Kona solids for this project. I had quite a few in my stash. I only needed to buy more Kona White for the background and a backing fabric.

Here is a single block. I used a dark gray (can't remember the correct color name) for the feature fabric in the center of each block.

They went together pretty quickly.

The top was assembled in a couple afternoons of sewing.

Progress on the long arm:


  1. Amazing. I saw the photo of your flimsy Karen and thought 'I love this,might need to make one', then I scrolled down and saw the quilting. OMG it is magnificent and brings this quilt to life. Looove it.

  2. Wow, your machine quilting adds so much dimension! So special.

  3. I agree, you quilting just makes this quilt so amazing! I've seen some of the others, but this one is super special!

  4. So BEAUTIFUL! Love the colors, the quilting, everything. Well done!

  5. Oooh - lots of room for your amazing quilting!! - ;))

  6. hmmm I looked and thought I have 16 double nine patch blocks that I found the other day this looks interesting. But then, then, I scrolled down and said OMG I have to do that!! Well something not quite as spectacular as yours, but you've given me inspiration. I have an Old Friends BOM on the frame know and it uses double nine patch blocks. The first time I made the sixteen blocks, well I kinda made them a bit too small. That would be why I have sixteen blocks laying around. Now they have a purpose. Wow!!!

  7. Thanks for all your efforts that you have put in this, It's very interesting Blog...
    I believe there are many who feel the same satisfaction as I read this article!
    I hope you will continue to have such articles to share with everyone!

  8. I was in a 9-patch exchange resulting in my possession of over 100 blocks. What is the size of your 9 patches, and the double 9 patch blocks, and finally the size of your finished quilt? Your quilting is magnificent. Thanks for sharing.
