    Blooming Cherry Blossom Ninepatch - top done!

    The color of the photo is a bit off; it's not so orangey. More pinky.

    It's so huge it goes beyond my design wall.

    I'm somewhat happy with it. In the future, I would definitely NOT use any fabric that conveyed "solid" or "blender" such as the celery green here. I fully understand why you use busy prints now for this pattern. The celery jumps out too much because it's too similar to a solid.

    I'm already collecting fabrics for the next one. Like the OBW, it's an addictive pattern because you're never quite sure what you're going to come up with. The design "emerges" (or in this case, "blooms") into existence.

    It is a blooming nine patch. It's a very easy design, actually. The most difficult part is identifying the best fabrics. Took me many months to collect the fabrics I wanted. The cutting and piecing is very easy.

    The celery is a little bit bright, but seems to blend well with the pink and green floral round closest to the center. It's beautiful! Nice job.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    A great quilt. I kind of like the way the celery green frames the middle. Will have to give this a try.

    I like the celery area. To me, it represents a calm area in the midst of a violent storm. it is a place for the eye to rest.

    I agree, it makes it not look as busy.

    I really like the celery green as it acts as a frame and separates the busyness of the other fabrics. Nice quilt!
