Sea of Pink

Remember that little tiny pile of cut up 9-patches I showed you a couple of days ago? I couldn't believe it, but all those patches covered a huge area on my floor.

I must have spent a good hour sorting them and laying them out the way I wanted.

Crispy's prediction that my missing three 9 patches would re-appear kind of came true... Three 9-patches make 12 little squares, which turns out to be one row of the quilt, so, the quilt is now one row shorter, 15 instead of 16 rows. The size still works out, since it's a double sized quilt and I can always play with the borders a bit. So no extra piecing for me!

Then I spent an intense time pinning rows, running out of pins, sewing rows, pinning some more rows etc. I'm about 2/3 done, with all but one row pinned, and if I get home at a decent time tonight, at least all the rows if not the whole top will be finished - very exciting!

Wow very pretty!!! Your color placement makes the eye rove all over the quilt. Well Done!!

I love it. This looks great! I'm hoping to do a disappearing 9 patch as my next quilt. I can't wait to find the time!
