American Jane 9 Patch Baby Quilt

Another little baby quilt!  I love doing these little projects to play with some favourite fabrics and practice some skills.

This time, I worked on my hand quilting skills.  Again.  Because it is soooo much fun!

I used several colours of DMC perle cotton in size 8, and an Aurifil in size 12 to hand quilt around all the 9 patches.  I machine quilted first, using Aurifil 50 wt. in the ditch, just to give it some strength, and then sat all comfy-like in my chair, or outside, or where ever I wanted to be, and stitched happily.

The fabrics are all American Jane, from a charm pack of ABC 123, and some yardage of the tossed toys on the back, and the lovely print of flowers on a blue background for the binding.

The batting is Warm & Natural and the dimensions are a little 27" x 32".
