Next Quilt Top

So, quilting fans, I must inform you all that I have started a new quilt top. Currently I am in the planning stages, so my computer has had Microsoft Paint open a lot these past 2 days. Since I enjoyed the last quilt top I made, which was a Blooming 9 Patch, I have decided to do a 9 Patch with a fun and visually stunning twist. Well, at least I think it is visually stunning, or at least hope that it will be. I decided on colors already, but I won’t divulge those until I start the cutting and sewing tomorrow morning.In fact right now, as I am typing this, I’m looking at the pile of fabric I have on my work desk, and I’m already thinking of new substitutions for some of the colors. I wasn’t in love with the color choice of my last Blooming 9 Patch, and I really want to get this one down. I feel like with the last one the center looks like a muddled mess. (Don’t get me wrong I like my last one, but I’m just not in love with it, and after all, I do think of sewing a quilt as a great love affair. I believe the amount of effort you put into sewing something you love should be tantamount to the amount of enjoyment you wish to gain from it being made.) So, as I sit here, staring at my desk, and the piles of fabric sitting upon it, almost leering back at me, I have decided that this will be gorgeous. Now I just need to find and equally gorgeous person to be the recipient.

First Blooming 9 Patch

I just need to let everyone know that a few days ago I completed my first Blooming 9 Patch Quilt Top. I once saw the book, Tradition With A Twist, and I flipped through it and loved the Blooming 9 Patch quilts, so I figured I would have to make one. It took me two days to cut and sew the top and I like the color choices I used, but I feel I could have done better, but oh well. Hindsight is always 20/20.
