9-patch finished...

This is my quilt from the 9-patch quilt-along that I participated in earlier this year and I'm so happy with it. I LOVE how it turned out. This quilt is for my husband and he's thrilled with it too, which makes me very happy.


I used a cheetah fabric on the back...which I love.





This is only a quarter of the entire quilt. It's big and took me a number of hours yesterday to sew on the binding.


It's done. It's really, really done!

Wow Terri that is just gorgeous AND so manly. Your choice for the border/sashing fabric is just perfect and something I never would have thought of. LOVE the backing fabric.

The backing and binding are a wonderful compliment to the front of the quilt. I can see why you both love it.

It really is a man's quilt, with lovely woman's touches -- what a great juxtaposition of fabrics, Terri!

And it's really, really fabulous! I love it. I bought some of that sashing fabric and I intend to blatantly copy you and make one for my husband, too.

I recognize that binding fabric! Obviously I didn't see it's full potential and didn't buy enough! LOL!

The quilt turned out great and I LOVE the backing!

I just love the contrast the sashing provides. You always have just the right combination for the quilts you make. and the backing is just gorgeous! It's one of those fabrics I would say I really like but 'what do you use it for...' You just answered that question and it looks smashing!! Anybody would be thrilled to get a quilt like that!

Beautiful Terri, Love the black/ brown sashing on the front with the bright colors. And of course I always love those animal prints. Done is good!!

The backing, binding and sashing are a wonderful complement to the blocks. Love it!
