    Magic 9 Patch - the next generation

    Saw the tutorial for this a couple days ago and decided to give it a try. I thought all the 7" squares were supposed to be the same fabric (the tan) , but maybe not. ?


    grrr. where's the pic

    What is it you are unhappy with? I think the colors play together very nicely. Here is a link to the directions to one variation.

    The link says "scrappy" but I think you're on to something pretty special.

    I've now realized all those tan pieces were supposed to be different colors. And I used a batik that I bought to make myself a skirt! grr. oh well, it's not too late to either continue with the tans or start changing the 7" sqaures to different colors. I can always use 7" tan batiks in something else..

    Here's another picture. Should I continue with the tan batiks or stop and continue with a mixture of other fabrics.

    Very pretty pattern! And I love the brights next to the tan. It gives my eyes time to breathe.

    I like it with the tans, but I think it would be fine with other colors too. I know - I'm not a big help! I do like this version.

    I like the tans, I would continue in this manner if it were mine. I though happen to like this color of tan as a neutral in quilts.

    I like the tans. It makes the other colors pop.

    I really like the effect of the tan batiks with the brights. However, you have to do it the way that speaks to you.

    I would stay with the tan batiks. It is going to look really nice.

    Ultimately, you have to be happy with your choices. If you like it, then go for it. IMHO, it looks like the tan overpowers the other fabrics instead of acting like a background. Like I said, just my opinion. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Earlier this year we did this quilt at my guild, it was a free pattern at the time. It was fun and interesting to see the different ways people chose their fabrics. Some used all the same colors for the 7" as you have. Some went totally scrappy and everything in between. By the way, all of them were fantastic. With this pattern I don't know how you could go wrong. I like what you have done so far.

    Stick with the tan batik. Looks good. I like it.
    You'll find these are addictive and will get a chance to do another with more colors.
