Handmade Patchwork Quilt

Handmade Patchwork Quilt

This is another of my own designs for a patchwork quilt.  After selecting my cotton fabrics, I basically started with the squares in the middle and just kept going, surrounding them with borders until it fit perfectly on the bed. A few different patch-working techniques were used for the borders, such as; Flying geese borders, Pin-wheel squares inter spaced with simple quilted squares and nine patch turned diagonally within a larger square. It would seem however, whatever method of pattern I decide on for a quilt, they always seem to take 5oo hours of hand sewing to complete. A simple little quilt I was really pleased with!
