    Origins Blooming Nine Patch WIP

    I loved this fabric when I came across it on Etsy, but didn't have a project in mind (bought it anyway). After googling images, I really wasn't finding a pattern that lent itself well to the fabric, but I think this one might be doing it for me. Gotta pick it all up before the cat gets on it.

    Great choice for that fabric, it turned out great. Would you mind sharing the pattern name and where you got it?

    @sandraa: The pattern name is "Blooming Nine Patch" and it can be found in the book "Tradition with a Twist" by Blanche Young and Darlene Young Stone. I found the book in digital form at I believe OnlineBookPlace.com for just over $11, but many other places have the hard copy for sale.

    That is beautiful, and I have wanted to do one like that, but at the moment don't have the patience.

    June, you wouldn't believe how simple this is! Granted, there is a LOT of cutting, then piecing the 9s was monotonous, but I've only been working on this since last weekend. I work FT, and go to school nights, so that tells you what kind of time I DON'T have...but it's very nearly a 'mindless' pattern so far. The part I'm dreading actually, is this next part: making sure I sew it up correctly:

    I saw a grid, iron on type of interfacing that you put the squares on and iron to attach, then you sew the seams. It all stays in one piece. That way it is less confusing with all those squares. I think you can get it at Joann's.

    It's so beautiful! I love these and would love to have one but don't think I have the patience to do it! I googled images and they're amazing, as is yours! What size will it be finished?

    I love Blooming Nine Patch Quilts! Simple construction and wonderful results. I made a king-sized for my DS and DDIL for their wedding gift and enjoyed every minute working on it. With your fabrics, there is good color flow from one fabric to the next. It's going to be gorgeous! Please share a photo when finished.

    @ yngldy- I TOTALLY forgot about that method! I had seen it here recently (link below) and wanted to try it; I wonder how well it would have worked with some of my 9 patches that weren't entirely square...

    I must try that method!

    Yes, hurry and get it before your kitty decides to rearrange it. Your pattern and fabric is too pretty to mess up now.
