Norene's Fancy 9-Patch

Fancy quilting alert!  Norene made this lovely 9-patch quilt with scraps and a whole lot of white.  I love it.

And here's what I did to it.  It took a little searching to find the perfect design to fit all the nooks and crannies of the negative space, but I think I found a winner.

For each pass, I would quilt half of the design- the bottom- then once I got across to the end, I came back and did the top half.  Then I would do the same thing for the C2C colored 9-patches.  So there are very few starts and stops.  

For the border I did a feather.  The borders were a bit wavy, so the echoing helped out with that quite a bit.

I used white Glide thread throughout the whole quilt.

Can you tell I really like this one??  Makes me want to buy a bolt of white fabric and make a few of my own.  Because I've got enough scraps to do it :)
