    Radiant Sunshine and Shadow Nine Patch

    I started this quilt the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I'd been thinking about making it for my son for Christmas since April but procrastinated for a long time. We went to see my son and his family on December 9th, so I really put myself on a tight deadline, but I gotter done. This is the first quilt I've made from this pattern, it was very simple to make and the top goes together like a dream because the only seams you have to match are for the rows of blocks and those in the nine patch blocks.
    The pattern is from the book titled Radiant Sunshine and Shadow by Helen Frost and Catherine Skow. It's a really good concept for making a simple quilt, with as few a 3 fabrics, that has an interesting look to it.
    I'm happy with the way it turned out and my son loves it!

    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    Beautiful quilt. Your son seems so pleased and you did a wonderful job. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    What a lovely quilt!

    It looks like the pattern is the same concept as the Blooming Nine Patch ... would I be correct?
    Thanks!
