I started my grandbaby's nine-patch in brights and lights (and a few darks the photograph tells me). Grand-baby-girl is due early in January and I want to finish a quilt for her before she comes.
Above and below is my progress so far and it's possible that after a few more blocks I'll change my mind and make a completely different quilt. Possibilities for this nine-patch are 2" sashing and corner blocks or snowballs alternating with the nine-patches. If I do snowballs I think I would choose fabric in a medium tone so I could add light triangles on the corners. I've also thought about appliqueing flowers around a border. We'll see how manage with the time I have.
A few more blocks in progress. I need more yellow blocks, for sure. None sewn yet.
I've already cut some strips to sew but have to pair them up with light/dark fabrics as needed.
When I go scrappy it just seems to get crazy. I can't limit my colors and fabrics. On the other hand, when I make more than enough blocks it makes it easier to eliminate some that don't seem to work well, so I guess there is some control.
I'm linking this post to Quarter 4 Finish-A-Long at She Can Quilt with the intention of having it sewn (whatever baby quilt it turns out to be), layered, quilted, and bound by the end of December.
