Quilt #13 - Split Nines

Without even realizing, I quilted one of my quilts in the unlucky #13 spot. I did have an issue with the placement of the panto in the second full row that overlapped a very small portion of the first full row. When the quilting for the entire quilt was completed, I ripped out the first row and the partial row and re-quilted and everything is good.

The pattern is a split nine patch in blacks and grays with the center offset a tad. I quilted it using the Dazzle panto and it was the first time I had used this panto and it is fantastic! I got the panto at Digitech where you can have them print the pantos at different sizes which is a great way to get ones that will be wide to fit your machine.

I quilted it with a medium gray So Fine and Bottom Line. It's a great combination!

On a side note - I am so thrilled that the grass and all the plants have greened up and I am happy to see that some of my plants are already thriving in the warmer weather!

I've done this pattern before with half squares but the split nines looks awesome. Great job. You may have inspired me to make another one this time with the split nines.
