Thanks for the quick quilt ideas. I had never tried a disappearing nine patch so I used the internet as a tutor...(why do I have a library full of quilt books???)...and had a go.
I started as the players ran onto the field for the traditional ANZAC day football game between my Australian Football team Essendon, and the more hotly fancied Collingwood. I don't know how I managed to sew so much as it was a great game, we kicked the winning goal with about 7 seconds to go.

The DNP is about a metre and a half square.
This is about a metre square.
I worked until about 2 am that6 night after a bit of a break, and sewed the bindings down the next day so works out I completed both quilts in around 11 hours...while happily watching good TV at the same time. The DNP will be first place at our market and the denim and post will be second prize...so that is one job box ticked!
If only there weren't another 100 to go before I finally wake up in a week and a half with both big commitments over.
Hope you are having a great day, Tracey
