Ruthie’s Quilt


About this Quilt


Tilted Nine-Patch blocks are quickly whipped up when you begin with 2½” strips sewn into strip sets.

The inspiration for this throw quilt came from designer Bev Getschel’s friend, Ruthie, who told her about a quilt she saw in a magazine called “Romantic Country” way back in the eighties. Bev carefully sketched out the block using only Ruthie’s description. But when she saw the actual design, it was completely different.

This colorful twist on a traditional Nine-Patch design is timeless!

Bev Getschel has been sewing since she was a small child–just big enough to hold a large needle with double thread. Now she is a prolific quilt designer who loves to make quilts for magazines.
