Blooming 9-Patch

I finished Jeri's Blooming 9-Patch quilt this afternoon. I used an overall pantograph on the quilt with Iced Blue Signature cotton thread and Hobbs 80/20 batting. The binding was applied to the front of the quilt after quilting while it was still on the quilting machine. This is an easy way to handle binding. You don't have to mess with shoving the large quilt through your domestic sewing machine to apply the binding. It's much quicker and easier. I used my straight edge ruler to maintain a 1/4 inch seam allowance. The binding will be turned to the back and hand stitched in place.
The photo of the backing shows the quilting better than the front of the quilt. This is a medium density panto that gives good coverage and yet it isn't too busy looking.
I think it turned out nicely.
