Here is a neat quilt made for Emily’s new baby. Grandma, who also happens to be a math teacher, made this counting quilt. It starts with 1 small block in the upper left hand corner block and adds one small block to each successive larger block.
The border, made of little pieces of fabric from the blocks, give a festive confetti type look to the quilt. Some of the fabrics used in this quilt were also used in a memory quilt made for Emily when she was in high school.
If you ever wondered why this pattern is called a 9 patch, wonder no more, just count along with the blocks.
