Design Wall Monday

I am still dreaming of scrap quilts from the class I took with Bonnie Hunter last week. In her book "Adventures with Leaders and Enders," the quilt Rick Rack Nines is calling to me.

My version of Bonnie's quilt:

The changes:
  • I used 2 1/2" strips instead of 2" strips.  My blocks are 6" finished instead of 4 1/2" finished
  • I am not making half-nine-patches.  I am replacing them with background triangles
  • I am not planning on borders
  • My quilt will be 102" x 102"
I think Bonnie will be OK with these changes.

Check out Judy's blog to see what everyone else is doing.

I like the fact that you don't stick to the pattern. It makes your quilt unique! You have a lot done already, can't wait to see the rest! :)

This is going to be lovely, I'm sure Bonnie will be fine with what you have come up with. You will have some nice open quilting spaces :-)

looks great and I like the changes too. I am so into borderless quilts and this is perfect for that. Nice job.
