And then there were 9


The blocks are done! I enjoyed mixing and matching the fabric for each block.  Picking the centers was probably the hardest part.



I plan to add some sashing and a border of some sorts, but so far I'm very happy with how this project is coming together.  I think it's an interesting quilt.   I've made prettier quilts, but given how unusual this fabric is, especially for me, I'm pleasantly surprised how much I like it.

  1. I like it a lot, Thelma. I've been making blocks with lots of points in their borders lately, too, and find it to be much fun. Bravo1

  7. I saw Cotton and Steel in a quilt shop last Saturday and immediately thought of you.

    You've worked wonders with that fabric and this is going to be a fun quilt for sure, Thelma.
