Some refer to them as "squirrels." Sandra at mmm quilts came up with the acronym "DrEAMi" which stands for "Drop Everything And Make It." Whichever name you like, it refers to a totally unplanned project that completely takes over your time and your brain, leaving you unable to focus on anything else. That's what happened with my recent squirrel, the Volcano 9-Patch quilt. I shared the beginning of this quilt two weeks ago in this post, and now I have a finished quilt top to share!
Volcano 9-Patch, 42.75" x 54"
This quilt was made from the leftovers of a Blooming 9-Patch quilt that I made in 2000-2001. I had run across a Zip-loc bag of scraps, strips and strip sets, and couldn't resist playing with them again. I was lucky to have extra of most of the same fabrics and added in a couple of others to complete the flow of colors. Instead of the Blooming 9-Patch layout that alternates 9P blocks with larger squares, this quilt is made up entirely of 9-patches, 111 of them total. Here's a closer look at the fabrics and some of the piecing.
I decided to use this crazy tie-dye style flannel for the quilt backing. It only needed one seam to make it big enough. I'm hoping to get this little quilt finished sooner rather than later.
