D9P

I love this quilt.
I love these colors.
This is how it started.
5" squares, sewn together
and then cut in fourths.

It was so fun collecting all these pretty fabrics
that I thought might go together.
I used gold/oranges in all the center blocks.
That, I think, gives those blues a little "POP"!
I also TRIED to use darks in the middle squares that were
cut in half.


You can see here that I used some of the extra fabric
for a 5 1/2" border.
Oooooh! I can't wait to quilt this one!

LOOK!!
I even took the time to cut my scraps into little squares!!!
2", 2 1/2", 3"......
I'm ready to begin another quilt!

  6. I love the fabrics in this quilt - of course blue is my favorite color. But the hint of pink roses and the yellow/orange centers are just a perfect blend. Oh, please show us the end results and then send it to me. LOL

  13. I love this D9P! What great colors, and I like the dark/light organization you did. Scrappy and yet it has a logic that my mind likes.

    Right now I'm doing a D9P for QOV, and it's only 2 fabrics. It's boooorring!
