Roxanne Quilt Top Finished

Roxanne Quilt Top

Fabrics for Roxanne quilt
For retiring co-worker Roxanne D., who wears bright, bold colors, black and white, and animal prints.

Strip pieced units (actually twice as long)
With less than a week to make and deliver the quilt, I chose an easy but complicated-looking Disappearing Nine-Patch sort of pattern. I passed up the actual DNP method and constructed the blocks using strip-piecing, which is fast for me.

Cross cuts

One sewn block - all will be sewn this way

Four identical blocks twisted to form pattern

Quilt blocks laid out on design wall

Quilt blocks sewn in rows

All blocks sewn together

Completed quilt top

I started the quilt on Saturday. I have to finish the quilt Wednesday night, as Thursday is Roxanne's last day of work. I'm doing well on time. Tonight my goal is to do a pillowcase finish. Then tomorrow night I'll just have to tie a bunch of knots. I can do it!


  1. this looks great, I first thought it was a disappering nine patch.

  2. Thanks, Bea. Actually it is based on a Disappearing Nine Patch pattern that I found in an image search. But I did strip piecing, because it is faster for me. :) Debbie
