    that is one beautiful quilt. I love the colors. the charity quilt group in the guild i used to belong to used the d9p for most of their quilts. Even though i no longer attend that guild the lady in charge has reassured me that I can continue to make tops for them and to continue going when i am able to the workshops. To be honest I got a little burnt out on the d9p after making about 10 tops for it. They all seemed to look the same to me after a while. but I may just have to go in and try this design. Thanks for posting it.

    This is just precious. I love the fabrics. It is always so interesting to see how patterns look so different depedning on color choices and arrangement. Thanks for sharing.

    I have done the d9p with only 2 colors. Her quilt is lovely and I found it interesting that all the blocks were turned the same direction except the last two in the bottom row. I also think it would be a different design to alternate the direction of the blocks on alternating rows. Thanks for sharing!

    Yes, she made a mistake on the last row but noticed it too late and it would have been too much to unpick, so she left it. But you're right, I was also thinking about alternating or even alternating each block in the row, could look quite interesting too.

    Oh no, I believe there is no such thing as a mistake in a quilt, only a new design opportunity. You see, I found it made the quilt interesting and it did not take away from the beauty of the quilt. I thought perhaps she had intended that to be the part that covered the pillow to distinguish it from the remainder of the quilt. In any case the quilt is lovely and she should never consider it to be a mistake. I'm sure her quilt has inspired many, it made me want to make one, maybe alternate direction in each row or even every other block. Please extend our thanks to her for sharing.

    Yes, in our group we tend not to "overquilt" the quilts. Don't understand me wrong, the quilting on most of the quilts I'm looking at on the board is just absolutly awesome, it looks great but we don't have any quilting machines and if we give it away to quilt it just costs a fortune and most of us ladies really want to make the quilts we make "our own" all the way through. I for myself haven't even got a machine with programs for embroidery, fancy stitching, etc. so I mainly do the stitch in the ditch or something easy like that and I haven't had the courage to try free-hand but probably will get to it step by step one day .... and I personally feel if there is lots and lots of quilting on a quilt, it tends to get stiffer and probably heavier too. I have won one in a raffle some years ago and this is more quilted than I would do it and this is just the feeling I got about it but I still love the quilt I won
