    Blooming 9-Patch - oopsies!

    I saw a picture of a blooming 9-patch quilt (before I knew what it was called), and decided to make one. So, of course, I made a mistake in figuring out the pattern - AFTER - I had cut all the squares LOL

    I didn't realize that the nine-patches were fabrics 1 and 2, then 2 and 3, then 3 and 4. I sewed them as 1 & 2, then 3 & 4, etc. so I had LOTS of extra solid squares left LOL. BUT, in the end I like it better, because it's not as big!

    I think it looks great. Blanche Young was a very innovated quilter that I was lucky to have meet her numerous time (shopping at M&L fabrics) and taken a DWR class from her. She could pick the ugliest fabric and make them into a stunning quilt. Her book Tradition with a Twist is where this pattern can be found. I am sure she would be pleased with the outcome of this quilt.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
