All the blocks for the Double Nine Patch quilt are finished. In fact there are enough blocks leftover to make another half a quilt because I took out all the dark brown fabrics. This involved a lot of ripping, but I decided I just didn't like the look of the dark brown nine patches. Now I am left with just dark blue nine patches in the quilt top.
This is my discard pile of dozens and dozens of dark brown nine patches. The reason for this OCD compulsion to remove them was due to an idea that without the dark brown, the quilt would be "lightened up" some what. I am not at all sure I achieved that, especially when viewed from a distance. However, I did find some border fabric that plays much better with the dark blue fabrics.
Isn't that pretty? It is even from the same collection as many of the dark blue fabrics I used. I found it in the tub that held the kit I originally purchased a few years ago and never got around to making. Evidently the border fabric was included in the kit, lucky me.
I plan to sew the blocks together today and with any luck, get the borders on.
Hope you all had a great weekend. I spent mine sewing and unsewing in nearly equal amounts. Sigh.
