    Working my disappearing 9 Patch!

    I was nervous to start this, 1. Because my son requested all bright colors, and 2. A friend said she had done one and got bored with it. Well, I started this 24 hours ago, and I just finished laying my cut blocks out and am ready to start sewing them into rows or large blocks.

    I'm excited too. My son came in and saw it and says he loves it, it's exactly what he wanted. He is turning 21 this year and he got my first quilt I ever made. A scrappy log cabin. He was 3.

    I think it's been easy due to my already having tons of 5 inch charms I had collected the past 10 years. So, I just started making the nine patches, zip, zip, zip. It will be a full size when it's done with borders and all. Thanks for looking. I'm so excited!

    You've done a great job. So glad you're enjoying yourself and it's just what you son wanted. I like all the bright colors and the scappiness. (Is that even a word - scrappiness?)

    It will be beautiful and bright, glad your Son will love it. I find men enjoy, use and like quilts the most. My Son has lots of them and is always willing to take more.

    Every time I see a great DP9 I want to make one! Please post when you finish.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I love your bright quilt and can see why a 21 year old would love it too. I have made a few D9P quilts and found them lots of fun to do. It is amazing how the placement of squares changes the design. Thanks for sharing.

    How very fun! You are ahead of the game when they like it before it is even finished piecing the top! That is one lucky boy.

    I have not been a huge fan of D9P but this one has changed my mind, I love it too. The colors are fabulous and I have a ton of 5" squares also. You did a great job and I guess I need to make one too. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm glad to hear that. My friend had told me she got bored doing hers so I was worried. But, maybe she had to cut all of her charms, I didn't. Only my dark batik that was the center of my 9 patch. I'd been saving charms for a long time for a Buckeye Beauty... but I had plenty. So I repurposed enough for this. Although, now I decided to make it bigger, and ordered a charm pack today.

    I think the secret to it being so fast and liking it is having the charms all cut long in advance. LOL Thank you for your lovely compliment.
