Blooming Nine Patch Complete

(I will definitely post a better picture when I can. It’s been cloudy and hard to photograph.)

I picked up the blooming nine patch from the machine quilter last Sunday. So exciting. The pantograph Cathy used is called ‘popcorn’ and it has soft cloudy lines. I really think it brings it all together.

I felt the quilt really needed a blue binding to bring the colors full circle. I settled on the Kaffe Fassett “Wood Ear” fabric for the backing and binding. I used to hate to hand sew the binding but since I learned this cool (and nearly invisible) blind stitch, I find it very relaxing and missed not having it to work on the next day. Maybe I should really learn to knit, it might give me the same effect.

Next up, I’m nearly finished with the Urban Couture top and will begin sashing the completed blocks for my sister-in-law’s quilt.
