    I have a realtor friend who stopped for tea and brought me this quilt top. Someone was selling her house and fallen on hard times; had to get rid of stuff. This is all finished, king-size, with about 6 yards of fabric for backing, and batting. Not necessarily my colors, but I think it will work (if I can keep the dogs off it). It is beautifully sewed.

    How sad that must have made the owner!! I'll bet she would be glad to know her lovely quilt has found a new home where it'll be loved.

    Well, I already am very fond of it. It actually looks pretty good in my sunny yellow room. I know someone had to be devastated to get rid of it after putting so much work into it. When I get it finished I will give my friend a picture, that maybe she can give to the lady that made it. I understand it is called "Blooming 9-patch".

    It's a Blooming 9 Patch, from Traditions with A Twist, by Blanche DeYoung.

    I've made over a dozen of them, and helped friends pick out fabric for even more. It's a fabulous pattern. Tons of piecing, but you learn a lot. The fabric is really the star in a quilt like this, and the ability to blend them from one to the next.
