If you’re lucky, you may have more than one woman in your life who deserves to be honored for the way she’s nurtured and cared for you.

Despite its ultra simplicity, designer Christine Barnes’ Module Quilt packs quite a punch with vibrant hues set against a neutral background fabric. Christine designed the 52″ square wall or lap quilt with low-volume prints and charming plaids that highlight the beauty of the basic grid pattern and underscore why the Nine Patch has remained popular for generations. Not only is it a great block for new quilters, but it is also incredibly versatile.
Quilts often tell a story about the era in which they were made and the women who created them. Over the years, countless quilt block patterns have been designed, but the humble Nine Patch has remained a constant. Through size, color and fabric choices, Nine Patch quilts like this one by Liz Evans and Elizabeth Evans continue to not only provide warmth, but also a history of the time in which they were created.
