Nine-Patch Quilt-Along

I have joined Crazy Mom's One a Day Nine-Patch Quilt-Along, and in response to Amanda's Post, here is my progress so far:


I have finished 16 blocks so I am almost up to date. The picture shows some of the blocks laid out on the white fabric that I will be using for the sashing in between the blocks.

I am using fabrics from Amy Butler's Midwest Modern and Daisy Chain collection. Although I really like these fabrics, I have had difficulty using some of these ultra bright pinks, oranges, blues and greens in my quilts. But I think the colors are working well together here!

  1. I love the white centers pulling everything together. It gives it a coherent look even with all the different fabrics.

  10. WOW!!! Again, the center white block is the perfect thing to bring them together. I really have to remeber that for a future quilt. And the colors are great with just a bit of brightness.

  25. I love the white centres. I bought a charm pack to add to the 9 patch but realized after that I can only get 4 squares from each of them. Your quilt would be a terrific solution for charm packs.

  26. Thanks for the great idea! I'm doing the quilt-along too and I'm using fabrics I've had in my stash for over 10 years. But I've been trying to figure out what to do with my midwest modern stash. I might just have to do this same thing. Really I could take any of your ideas, they're totally my style. Thanks!

  27. Beautiful! I love the white centers -- especially on your "all cool" or "all warm" blocks. This is going to be a gorgeous quilt!

    I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to be able to resist this quilt-along. . .
