    I need to make (not need I want to) a queen size quilt for a bed in my summer house in the Hamptons. So I started out with 6 1/2 inch square and ended up with an 18 inch block, which I love. You have to understand I am not a pastel person this was very hard for me......will post when done. thanks for looking

    I did a dp9 and thought it was ALOT of sewing; but liked the result. yous is a very pretty color. I then tried a split rail; now that was easy but if it had not been for the chain piecing I would've gotten board and quit. I really love the blue.

    Pretty! I've never thought of doing a D9P with just two colors. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

    Beautiful - but if you used batiks all the time, you would LOVE pastels!

    This will be wonderful. Very well suited for a summer in the Hamptons. A great name for the quilt.
    peace :D

    Quietly spectacular!
    Love your combination of fabrics. That aqua batik is beautiful and the pastel sets it off so nicely.
    As a nine patch it is ho-hum, but as a D9P it is perfect.

    I think that will make a very suitable quilt for the Hamptons. Pastels and lighter colors would not suit my homestead, nor my lifestyle. My kitty thinks she is a human and she makes room for me in my bed so I can go to sleep.
