    Make sure you have different values... light med and dark. I myself tend to navigate towards med dark all the time, so I have to push myself a little. It's a fun quilt to make! Post photos when you get it done!

    MTS, you may hold the record for the most Blooming Nine Patch. Each has its own distinct personality. Thanks for showing them here.

    MTS - thank you all the examples! I had no idea what a Blooming 9 Patch was. I really love the star.

What you think would never work - does. Lots of small florals light to dark work great. Her book has been a top seller for years. She is the "inventor" of strip piecing and was honored at Houston for her innovative ideas in quilting.
    I have 2 copies of her Traditions with a Twist ( out of print so got 2 to make sure I will always have one ) and have made two of the JAMAICA quilts - one with wine country colors in all batiks, going to Amish black for the darkest (quilt calls for 13 different colors/shades for strip piecing).....I absolutely LOVE her quilts....If you have the option of visiting with her, please let her know I am one of her biggest fans........

    This book is still being printed. Has been a best seller and remains a best seller. My favorite book. I have never found an error in any of the many quilts I have made from this book.
