When I found out that I had two nieces due within months of each other my brain went into over drive with quilt ideas. Unfortunately I did not have the time to make two different elaborate quilts as I wanted because of teaching and taking university courses.
I had seen Disappearing 9 patch quilts before but did not know what they were called only that they were very eye catching. While looking for quilt patterns for my two nieces I stumbled upon this YouTube video, which changed the course of my summer!
I ended up making the same quilt but different?
All in all these quilts only took about 50 hours each start to finish
Ultimately to make the quilts appear different I chose not to put a border on Lilah's. Everything I tried with it just didn't do it justice.
The two original quilts are backed with flannel baby foot printed fabric. I've started using minky fabric on the back of the more recent ones, its just so soft I cannot say no to using it for babies!
As it turned out this quickly became my favourite baby quilt pattern so I've now made them for a few more?
I even turned it into a nursing cover that could be used as a belly time blaket.
