I'm working on the Blooming Nine Patch in the upstairs studio, since it needs to stay up on the wall This way I can take the pieces off the wall and sew them in the right order. If I were to bring it downstairs, there isn't anywhere to lay it out, and there would be a huge risk that I'd get the pieces out of order. When I first started adding in those black squares, the first reaction was that I didn't like it. But the more of them I put up, the more I began to really like the effect. It turned it from a little girl's pastel quilt, into a more mature look.
I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at The Needles and Thread Network, a link up for Canadian bloggers, and also at Freshly Pieced. Then it's time for supper, and some more underground railway blocks. I wonder if I can get the last seven done tonight?
