Default Blooming 9 Patch

This is a blooming 9 patch, from the book Tradition with a Twist by Blanche Young. I only altered the pattern by making it bigger, so my quilt is 103.5x114.5. The top was amazingly quick to make, but quilting it was another matter. I started quilting swirls with black thread, did about 24" of the quilting across the entire quilt top (about 103"x24") and didn't like either the design or the thread color. I then took it off the frame and used the seam ripper extensively over a span of several days. Then I decided on a silvery grey thread and quilted feathers looping around all over the quilt. The quilting doesn't show much on such busy fabrics, but the silvery grey looks much better than the black. I pieced the back from leftovers.
