Rick Rack Nines

I am so happy to have this very large quilt finished.  It's called Rick Rack Nines and is from Bonnie Hunter's book Leaders and Enders.
Bonnie says it is a Big quilt and she was right but it was quite easy to make using the leader ender method.
The quilt used 2,670 - 2" squares to make the nine patch blocks.  I finished it with a machine sewn binding shown here  because I knew I would never get the binding sewn down by hand.


This is the border finish I have chosen for my Rose of Sharon quilt.  After searching the universe I found some of the inner border fabric.  I can't seem to really love this quilt. I think it's because I am more of a primitive person but I stuck with it and soon it will be finished.

Happy stitching,
Nancy

I think it's beautiful, maybe this is one of those quilts that need to be put away for a while to really be appreciated.

I am fond of both quilts! You can send the Rose of Sharon my way if you still don't like it after it's quilted!! The new border selection is nice - glad you found the original fabric!
