I'm so proud of myself. I made an entire quilt top in a day! It's not huge, but still - for me, that's a lot of work. A huge shout out to my hubby, who took the girls out in the morning, and by the time they came home, it was nap time. So I had several hours of working in a quiet house with no interruptions!
It's a disappearing nine patch, and can I just say, I love it! I don't even want to give it away, but alas, it's for a friend who just had a baby. The best part about this one is, I didn't have to buy any fabric for it - not even for the back! All of these fabrics I've had for a while, except for the green, which I bought a few months back just to add to my stash. The fabric for the back I've had for years, back when I knew nothing about buying fabric, and I would buy it by the yard(s) for no reason. It's a beautiful piece of fabric and coordinates perfectly with the front. But I'll show more of that later. For now, here's the front.
A before picture, with all the nine patches sewn together.
And after, with just a peak of the backing fabric. I'm not gonna lie, I copied the way to lay out all my squares from this gorgeous quilt. If I had to think about how to lay them all out, I would still be working on it.
I think I might do orange for the binding...thoughts?
