    I love the fabrics you have picked. So pretty. Looks like you are doing great. Let us see when it's finished as well.

    Nice job. Your chosen fabrics are giving it a soft, gentle look.

    ...somebody really likes roses. Is it going to be strips of blocks/sashes?

    The rose fabrics have very delicate colouring. I wonder what it would look like if you alternated the 9 patch and plain block in each row so that the plain blocks do not form stripes. The fabric reminds me of spring.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    Well, I think you are off to a wonderful start. Remember to press, press, press. IMHO, the sashing should be more narrow and of a more delicate color. That will be one beautiful quilt when you are finished.

    Thank you so much for your comments. It is going to to be a lap quilt for my aunt since stays cold during the winter time I thought she would really like this to cover up with.

    Love the colors of the fabric you picked. Your aunt will surely love it too.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    You are doing great, and I don't like to be negative about someones work, but if it were me, and using the soft colors you have with tiny roses, I'd be using a pastel in the solid block and stagger the rows.
