split 9-patch

I joined in on Bonnie Hunter's split 9-patch project of 2013. It is made with 2 1/2 inch cut squares and half-square triangles. I used up many of my pre-cut squares, but there are many more in the bin.

The block finishes 6 inches. The border is 9-patches with just dark fabrics.
I love streak of lightning sets and it works well for this quilt.
Machine quilted by Suzette Fisher.

The back uses up large blue pieces, many with special meanings to me.
