    This is not what I imagined it would turn out to be and I know now what I did wrong. I used way too many prints and I just mixed them all up. Can anyone tell it's a disappearing nine patch? Anyway... It's off to my quilter and she'll preform magic and put a red binding on it. I just made it lap size since I wasn't thrilled with it. Does that happen with anyone else once they start working on a quilt?

    I'm kind of liking the crazyness of it. I don't think it's bad at all.

    I'm sorry you are disappointed with it, but I love it. I knew instantly that it was a D9P. I think its awesome, I love the various black and white fabrics with the pops of red. Great job, can't wait to see it quilted.

    It is beautiful. The work is excellent. Where it might not be our most favorite, there will be those who choose it over others.

    I think quilting it with red thread would really make it pop. I like it.

    Yes, a busy quilt but very nice. Once when I was unhappy with my quilt's patterns, I tore off the outside border and put in a two inch solid black sashing and then pieced more border fabric. It framed the center from the outside border and calmed everything down.

    Yes, It has happened to me. Maybe, someone else will LOVE it and you can give it to them.

    I got rid of mine..After quilting, I still did not like it.

    So, it was my fabric ??? Anyway, someone else is loving it!

    I knew that it was D9P. Leave it a week and then you will love it.

    I think it's beautiful! Wait until it comes back from the quilter and get the binding on. I'm sure it will grow on you.

    I am not one for "wilder" quilts usually but I must say, I REALLY like this! Whatever you did works so well. If you don't like it, someone will! :-D

    Well, "I" like it, even if you don't. Looking at it holds my interest for a long time. And anything with black, white, and red can't be bad!!! It's unique and being a newbie I don't know or care what a D9P is anyway, so non-quilters will be thrilled to own this.

    It is indeed a bit too busy for me... so I know where you are coming from.
    Someone I used to sew with and I started making tree skirts - and had about 4 prints... and put them together and man oh man it is hideous. It is still in the ufo box. I am sure others would love it but it was too countrified for me. I might finish it and put it for sale on Etsy one of these days... I do want to start selling some things other than my crochet patterns on Etsy. It's just a matter of getting started lol.


    Anyhoooo.
    I'm sure that someone will absolutely love that quilt. You will find a home for it :)

    I really like it. I'm also doing a D9P that has the crazy patchwork look to it. I love the look and think it's great!
