split 9 patch

This is another quilt to go to northern India. It's to go to a school set up for children who live at the dump. After seeing a picture of the last quilt I made with it's recipient, I knew I wanted to make another. When I heard they were collecting quilts for the rest of the children I got started.
I had some fabric I wanted to use up. I made some 9 patches - split them and sewed them back together again. It was fun arranging them as there were so many options. It is machine quilted very simply.
I hope this quilt will bring a smile to a child's face and keep them warm on cold nights this winter.
Happy Quilting!!

A very worthy thing to do Janet and nice thought that it is going to bring a smile and warmth to these very disadvantaged children.

Bless you... and all who make quilts for those who need a "hug" from those of us who have so much...!
