Hey - just want to post a couple of pics of the quilt I was making for my friend in Washington State. Jacquemoe did the quilting for me. My friend was VERY surprised. This is a split 9 patch - 4 corners the same material, the 4 middle outside blocks the same material - and the darker fabric was in the middle space. This way, I could make the 1 way material all lie the same direction when pieced.
