This quilt is a blending of old and new. There is the old traditional Nine Patch, with the new shading of fabrics and the shaded colors play off of each other. Directions are given for a multi-strip border, as well as two other ways to shade the fabric. This quilt won Best in Machine Quilting in 1994 at the Glendale (CA) Quilt Guild Guild Show and traveled to be in the American Quilter’s Guild Show in Paducah KY, that year. See several other versions in the Gallery.
