Niner

When I was a little girl, I loved to sew but hated following patterns. Instead, I made up my own, and even if I did use a pattern, I always made many changes.
For once in my life, I followed someone else's pattern AND tried my best to make it look as close to the original as possible. Do you recognize this beauty? It's Camille Roskelley's "Niner" pattern using "Scrumptious" and "Happy-Go-Lucky" fabric collections mixed together. I just couldn't fight perfection.
Okay so it would be pretty much impossible for me to duplicate hers but I'd like to think I came close! I even tried to mimic Angela Walters' quilting (ha ha, right?) in some parts. 
I did deviate on the binding--wasn't actually sure what Camille used but I was very set on using a stripe-y binding against a solid mint back fabric.  
Happy to finally enjoy it!

  3. I'm working on setting this one right now! And I totally agreed about the perfection and followed her pattern and color choices as closely as possible. Can't wait to be done with these bias triangles and move on to the quilting!

  4. What a wonderful quilt you have made. I have the pattern but haven't used it. I plan on using it soon after we move. Your quilt is stunning! Camille is great.
