Linda brought me this fun and funky quilt that I think is a Split Nine Patch. The best quilting for a busy quilt is usually an edge to edge design. I looked for a pattern that would be whimsical and funky just like this quilt!

Isn’t this quilt fun and funky? I think it is called a split nine patch.

This is Linda’s quilt and I love how whimsical it looks.  It was fun to check out all the different fabrics she used, many of which are in my own stash!

Split Nine Patch Quilt with Spin PantographThis quilt is a smallish twin and uses one of my favorite combo colors – blue and yellow!  She has dots, swirls and other whimsical fabrics in her top.  I’m told this pattern is very easy to make but I’ve never tried it.

I believe you sew a nine patch in the traditional method then cut it apart on a diagonal and sew it back together in all its funky glory.  Very effective and fun!

On quilts with this many different fabrics, an edge-to-edge pattern is really the best choice.  I used the pattern “Spin” on her top which is whimsical and funky – perfect for this quilt!
