    I also think it looks bright and springy. Nine patch are great, been around a long time. Do what pleases you.

    Beautiful bright colors and not at all boring, especially now that I know how hard it can be to get all those rows perfectly aligned!

    There is no such thing as a boring quilt! If it's made with love it's special. I agree with everyone else though, I love 9 Patch quilts.

    Terrific, not bored in the slightest. The colors are very springy and will look great on your bed, I'm sure. Very pretty.

    I like it, I like it, I like it! I like the placement of the 4 white squares in each block. It is a wonderful quilt.

    If you are happy with it (it sounds like you are) then that is all that matters. Whom ever is just jealous that she didn't do it first. Sew in peace! You did a great job with it and I'm gonna copy it (if you don't mind!).
