I must be crazy…

I have always wanted to do a “Blooming 9 Patch” Quilt.

I was messing around on eq7 tonight and came up with this:


Wouldn’t this look lovely in hand-dyes?

I showed it to my husband.  He said – “yep.  it would look lovely in about 5 years when you are finished…”

he is so true.

Did I mention it will be king size.  with 3” finished blocks?

Maybe I will buy the PFD for myself for Christmas and start on it in the new year.

    Yep, you have gone off the deep end!! LOL I like the style of the blooming 9 patch, but never seen one that really looks “good”. Now this would be striking done in hand dyes…but the 1 1/2″ blocks to make 3″ patches would be a bit batty :) Good luck!

    Yes, that would be wonderful in hand dyes!! But I think that I would be much like your husband states. It would definitely take me that long especially if I was dying my own fabric.

    Wow! That would take me eons, but it would be gorgeous! I wish I had the time to take on something like that, good luck if you do;)

      Jenni – I think I will give myself a deadline to have it done and quilted before we move from Hawaii in just under three years.

    Batiks would look good as well… what a lovely design,

    • Kim says:

      Barbara – yes, batik would look nice as well. But since I am fascinated with hand-dyes lately, I want to use hand-dyes that I do myself.
