Nine Patch Signature Quilt

This wonderful quilt belongs to Doreen.  Many of the large nine patch squares were made by her quilting friends as part of an exchange and have their signatures somewhere on the block.  Doreen put those squares together in this very pleasing layout.   

What a lot of little nine patch squares Doreen made! Because so many of the pieces in the quilt top were only one inch square we chose a fairly dense pantograph so that there would be squares that were entirely empty of quilting.  "Flying Paisley" was the pantograph that really seemed to do the job.  

Doreen provided a lofty polyester batting, and a solid backing  so the quilting stands out really well.
