Amy's Creative Side Blogger's Quilt Festival

My entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side in the Hand quilting category , is a disappearing nine patch quilt I made for my new grand daughter. I had never made a disappearing nine patch before and really liked making it. I chose nine lavender/purple fabrics. I worried it would be too purple, but now I like it. I went for a traditional look and quilted around each square. I decided on a flower border which was a bit of a challenge, but turned out well.
