Grey Posies Nine Patch
So far I am holding up to my goal to Finish Up! I've been busy, and I've got this whole stack to show you. (before you get too amazed, these four quilts were all small lap or baby size, and they mostly needed quilting and binding) Right now my laptop is very sluggish so it's taking a long time to upload and edit photos, so I'll start with the top quilt.
About a year ago, I made a set of nine patch blocks just for the fun of it. I used some pretty random fabrics! I loved these little blocks, and always planned to sash them and make a little quilt, but I could never decide what fabric to use as sashing.
I kinda figured I'd go with a solid cream. Very safe, and it would have looked nice. I know I would have liked it. Then for some reason I spied this grey posies print (from Flea Market Fancy by Denyse Schmidt) It was sitting modestly on the shelf so I pulled it out as an option. Hmmm.... I really liked it but worried that it would be too busy.
So I let these blocks sit for a few more months, and then one day I just decided to go for it! I think I like it! I probably wouldn't do this every day, but it works here.
And then I used this chevron fabric by Moda. I'm so sad this one is no longer available! I know that Riley Blake has a similiar fabric, but I don't like it quite as well. The only reason for this is that I love the deeper golden shade of this one, compared to the lighter yellow of the Riley Blake fabric.
