Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I used almost the same cut out over 3 years ago for my G-daughter's quilt. She choose bright fabrics and happy prints. She was 13 at the time.
this is such a great idea--i've never seen this pattern or a quilt made this way even though the post is a few years old! They sure are coming up with a lot of new "wonky" ways to cut!Originally Posted by sewgull
that is very different, It would be neat with a different color combination. Penny
Several of the ladies in my church group are making these crazy 9 patch quilts with bright jewel tone tonals and they are turning out beautiful. They are using black for sashing and some in the borders, too. One lady used zebra print in her borders. Another is using a black strip the size of the sashing strips for her 1st black border, then a strip of square blocks from some of the remaining 9 patch fabrics. She will probably have the outside border done when we meet next Tuesday, but I forgot what she said she was putting, but it was not going to be zebra.
i would like to see a picture of those! especially if they used black-it really draws the colors out. i think i may try one of these, i think i may have enough retro fabric to do a small oneOriginally Posted by nlgh
Now those colors sound beautiful. PennyOriginally Posted by nlgh
I made this pattern into a bedspread for my guest room by adding a skirt and leaving out padding. I used florals in pinks and greens and turquoises. I will post a photo when I am back home. Right now I am visiting my daughter in Ohio.
