Just popping in to share my quilt top "Patriotic Picnic".
I designed this quilt so I could use up the 90 or so nine patch UFO blocks . It's a large quilt, finishing at 90 inch square.
The low volume background was a real challenge since my go-to background is usually plain ole Kona White. It takes a lot more planning and paying attention to detail when working with the many different background prints, but well worth the effort, don't you think?
Well I didn't use up all those nine patches. 48 more on the wall. Another design challenge. Make a quilt that uses exactly 48 nine patches. It took a lot of trial and error but I came up with a plan using exactly 48.
How about a little peak at my design wall. Plenty of white space for applique or quilting, I'm leaning towards applique.
A close up of the border fabrics that were also leftover from the Patriotic Picnic quilt. The navy blue is from my vintage stash and the red is brand spanking new.
Hope to see you in a few with another finished quilt top.
