    Move the bottom left block over to the bottom right, and all you'll have to do is make the large setting triangles. If you make them in the cream it will give a modern look and if you make them in black it will look very masculine. I do like your prints - very nice!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Seems like good advice, and you provided a beautiful sample to study.

    You can move in here with me since my brain is the same Faye. I read it over and over and nothing seems to get through the thickness I call my head.

    I must have been daydreaming through some of the DP9 quilts that were on point or they just didn't catch my eye until this post. I just purchased the Socky layer cake and some yardage to make a DP9 for a sock monkey lover and will now redo my layout plan. Thanks so much for starting this post.

    This may be the dumbest comment you get...but I don't see the problem. I really love the work that you have done it, it looks beautiful! I would just continue doing what ever you are doing. However, I also realize I am not a "traditional" quilter, so if you are going for a different look, then good luck!

    It's a disappearing 9 patch. I have no idea how much fabric it took, I cut up a bunch of stuff from my stash. I believe I made (25) 9 patch blocks. Probably 4-1/2" or 5" originally. sashing I believe was 2-1/2." the triangle blocks were just regular blocks cut in half diagonally. You do lose some points but can't really notice.
