Nine Patch One More Time


Here is a picture of the nine patch with the white borders. I have been looking at different border quilting designs. I haven't marked it yet though. The rest of it will probably be quilted along the sewing lines and maybe on some of the diagonals. I also have to find some fabric for the back. I might have enough fabric to make large squares of some of the pieces I used for the nine patches.

Meanwhile, today I washed and ironed all my new fabrics that I bought yesterday and they are sittting there tantalizing me. I have to look through some of my books and decide what to do with them. Maybe it's time to start my green quilt, although those pinks and purples are calling me too.

The nine patch is looking good - the white borders really show up the vibrant colours of the blocks.

I'll vote for the green too... lol

But then again, those warm pinks would brighten up your winter if you started a quilt with them. :)

Great progress. Those new fabrics will wait while you finish your nine patch. Just look and touch and imagine all the possibilities!

This is even better than the last time I saw it. That white, wide border makes it spectacular -- and it's just a regular nine-patch. Goes to show you, incredible quilts can be made from simple patterns.

That quilt looks so good with the borders.
I can understand you wanting to get onto the pinks- they look lovely.
