    Blooming Cherry Blossom Ninepatch - in progress

    Some of you may remember that I've been wanting to make a quilt that represents that yummy feeling I get in early spring when the cherry blossoms bloom. At least a year ago, I started collecting fabrics that conveyed that sense of color and light that I absolutely love. You can read the starting challenges here:

    Blooming Nine Patch not as square?

    For the time being, I've settled on the Blooming Nine Patch pattern. The cutting and piecing is very simple; the most difficult part is selecting the 8 required fabrics to make it work. I have 7 -- only six of which are in the photo below. I'm still seeking a mid-tone green/rose combo for the next row out.

    Thought I'd share my progress.

    Very nice! The color blend is nice.

    you might consider a medium grey - pehaps with a touch of pink or green for the last row. The green that is in the print is going to be too dark. Grey might be a nice blend.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    This is going to be a gorgeous quilt. I think working toward that dark green is exactly the right plan since it appears in row six and will be combined with a rose in seven. I hope you will soon find exactly the right fabric for the missing row. Can't wait to see the finished quilt!

    It is fabulous.. if you need to add a row .. use one of the fabrics you have used the pink or green would work well. Nothing says you can't use a fabric more then once in this pattern.

    Or a blue grey color for the sky with the same flowers in the row before. It would give the sense of trees against the sky! Lovely! Luann
