This is the quilt for my daughter to have at her house for visiting little ones to use. A simple 9-Patch that went together quickly and was fun to do. I had enough different fabrics that it was easy to build the 9-patches without feeling I was repeating combinations too frequently. The backing is a sweet blue flower . . . same as one of the fabrics on the front.
I took this angled shot hoping the quilting would show up a bit. If you wish, click to enlarge it and you may be able to see it more.
I had a little trouble deciding on what to use for the binding. I liked how the blue flower I used for the backing looked on the front, but then the back of the quilt was kinda plain. (Or you could say, really plain!) The yellow fabric with the blue flower used on the front looked really good with the blue backing but didn't do much for the front. (Oh, the trials and tribulations!) I finally settled on the orange stripe and am truly-duly happy with it. Stripes or polka dots are almost always a winner for bindings. At least in my book.
Can't beat the good, ol' 9-Patch block, can you? I sure do love those old traditional block patterns.
