    I think sewing the remaining 9 patches in a vertical strip setting, with solid vertical strips in between the 9 patch strips is authentic. Does that make sense? Not sure how to describe it, but I can picture it in my head... sorry, Im tired... Wonderful quilt, by the way.

    How many is a bunch of leftover 9P blocks?

    Not enough for another full quilt, but a good start on one. Have you thought of using them in the backing? The could be borders, sashing, etc., you can use to divide up different fabrics if you piece a scrappy backing.
    Beautiful quilt, BTW. The colors are just wonderful. That was quite a gift you received.

    Love it! I am working on a scrappy quilt right now too....It is so freeing after sticking to strict patterns for a while.

    I would use the extra 9 patches and do another simple one with plain middle blocks (like this: http://www.ttfabrics.com/patterns/do...rt-Pattern.pdf but scrappy)

    eta: even 30-35 could make a good start for an inside with borders!

    It's going to have a thin border of the off white used in the snowball blocks and a Purple border (All the corners of the snowballs are purple.)

    With your extras can you do the DP9 (Disappearing 9 patch).

    Love it!!

    Coming along nicely. When we see a WIP it makes us realize all the love and work that goes into the making of a quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    WOW LOVE LOVE IT!!!! Simply stunning thank you for sharing. With the leftovers can you do something similar to an Irish Chain Variation?
