"Afternoon Delight" was one of Sue Garman's favorite patterns. This wonderfully scrappy quilt is truly a delight to make with its combination of simple appliqué and Double Nine-Patch blocks and modified Shoo Fly blocks. Each month you will work on pieced and appliquéd blocks, and in the final month, you will assemble the blocks and add the outer border. The finished quilt measures approximately 86 1/2" inches square.

Let's use this Topic "Afernoon Delight Show and Tell" as a place to show off your beautiful blocks. That way, you know where to come to see what everyone is doing.

The topics that apply to each month are a good place to ask questions or make suggestions for each block.

AND when you post your photos to Social Media, like Instagram, Facebook, etc., use either of these hash tags so everyone there will be able to find our wonderful work:

HelenW. Thank you so much. I was thinking the 9 patch had to be a different size. This really simplifies it!!! I am anxious to see your final quilt top.

Eyestitch, The 9 patch is the same size as the ones in the double nine patch. Unfinished 2 3/4 square. I make it up and lay it in position one of the foundation and just
treat it like a patch of fabric. Worked great. HelenW

Continuing to audition ideas for my border illusions. Since I am going to do Quilt in Sections I figure I would like to have the look
of a border, but included in the size of the blocks in the quilt body. I drafted the 9 patch flying geese in EQ8 from Rickys new book.
Used the idea, and changed the size so two flying geese are the same size as one finished block. To get the narrow dark border
I plan to add a narrow strip to the inside of the geese block. Then that will be treated as horizontal rows of blocks. I plan to quilt
it in quarter sections. Then put the 4 sections together. Still open to change, depending on how things look as I move forward.

Eyestitch, I used the curved ruler set from the Quilted Pineapple, by Linda Hrcka. They are great rulers. Here are photos of the rulers--the longer one was use for the outside curve in the border. I practice on paper first to figure out which ruler will work best. For curved cross hatching you need a ruler that is long enough to cover the entire curve--no moving the ruler once you begin the curve.

Barbara, can you tell us what diameters of circles you used for the diagonal cross hatching. I have never done diagonal cross hatching, but I love it and I know I will want to try it sometime. Knowing how big your circle rulers were will help me tremendously. Thanks.

Tried a layout to see how things are developing. How many more double nine patch I need, and to see if I think I will like the 9 patch flying geese idea.
The idea of making a border of 9 patch flying geese came from Ricky Tims new book. He uses the border, and you can see it on the cover picture.
I bought the book, but thought I would adjust the size to be the same size as the blocks in Afternoon Delight. I drew it up in EQ8 and then redrew the
geese lines so the points float. That way I don't accidentally cut off any points. A few photos of what I am doing. Having fun, and so glad to get my
sewing machine back after not having it for month due to the long line up waiting to have its yearly service and check up. HelenW

Finished the appliqué for September and I have done 43 nine patch blocks. So I have posted a random but more recent selection since I haven't posted for a while. I congratulate those of you who have gotten all those pesky nine patch blocks finished.

Helen asked about the thread colors I used while quilting my smaller version of Afternoon Delight.
The white for Stitch in the Ditch is Microquilter 100 wt by Superior, color #7002 White. This was also used on the pumpkin seed motifs in the white squares and to echo quilt around the applique shapes. .
The diagonal lines through the small red and blue squares is Quilters Select 60 wt, #0198--a deep red.
The curvy swirly spirals in the 1" blue border is Quilters Select 60 wt, #0367, a royal blue.
The bobbin thread is Superior's Bottom Line, #621, a creamy white that disappeared on the back of my quilt.

Since my machine quilting is still "in development", I prefer matching thread to minimize seeing wobbles and ooops. I don't use monofilament, though I should try it again to see if I like it. I have both Superior's Monopoly and Wonderfil on hand.
Here is a link to my blog on this quilt, in case you don't follow me:

bbquiltmaker.blogspot.com/2020/09/ruler-work.html

The December 1 blog will have a lot of ideas for finishing our Afternoon Delight quilts with more photos of this smaller quilt and my original sample made to test the pattern last year.

Barbara Black, I enjoyed the latest blog you wrote about your quilting the red, white and blue Afternoon Delight. It is great advice and examples for those who
choose to do their own quilting. I loved the pumpkin seeds in the off white patches of the the double nine patch. What color thread did you use for the diagonal straight lines
in the little nine patches.I can see the quilting design but not the thread color. Is it dark monofilament? I took my sewing machine in for service and cleaning 3 weeks ago
and I am hoping to get it back next week. The sewing machine tech said every person that owned and old sewing machine has dug them out of the closets and need to
make masks. Most of them need to be serviced and he has been over his head in maintenance and repairs. Guess I should be glad just to get it done. Any chance you
could post your quilting pictures of the red, white and blue Afternoon Delight here on the forum. That way people that are just checking in to see what is recent will see
them. They are great. HelenW
