    This one kind of hurts my eyes. :P The story behind this, is I purchased some quilting stash and fabric from the niece of a quilter who passed away. I finished a quilt a week or two ago from her stash. This is another one. She had completed a bunch of the 9 patch blocks. Many aren't perfect. The points don't exactly line up on some etc. But, I didn't want them to go to waste. And the fabric is for sure quilt store quality. There was enough fabric left for me to cut out the middle blocks and the sashing. There's also enough left to bind it in the wild purple fabric. I had some yardage in my stash for the backing that matches. So, I put all the blocks and sashing together and it's ready to quilt. It came out to a large lap or crib size top. I'll probably quilt it in off-white thread to somewhat calm down the brightness of it. This quilter was much more into the bright florals than I am. LOL. But, it will be a good utility quilt of some kind:>

    Great job - I think you will like it more once it's quilted.

    Well I personally like it, very pretty :thumbup:
    I can understand it's not to everyones liking but I think it turned out very nice. I am glad you "saved" the blocks and I think you will like it more once it is quilted. Thanks for sharing.

    Hopefully, I'll be fonder of it when it's quilted.

    Great woman's quilt, makes me feel like a summer garden. Would be absolutely beautiful on a table in a garden for a luncheon.

    Once it's quilted it will be perfect. I love the colors. I don't think that anyone...but you would notice if some of the blocks aren't perfect. Looks great to me.
