Love the effect this quilt gives off. :) Fantastic job.
What a gorgeous quilt and an intriguing challenge!

wow - that's one great quilt.
Thanks Claire and Strandkorbtraum! I just hope the quilting of it doesnt drive me mad :)
Awesome- love the pixel quality and the colors are fabtastic!
Mymble Thank you! The colors did really well once I got the purple in there..purple always fixes things LOL
Wow, this is just gorgeous! I love the value in this quilt...and it definitely "blooms!" Wonderful!
Caribousmom Thank you! The bloom is what I was going for. I have seen some that are more Boston Commons like and then some that bloomed too much, I was trying to hit the middle :)
Wow! Just Wow!
Charwirfs, just figured it out..LOL The calendar on my computer got set ahead ..in error...so when I got your comment and Pompoms it said the comment came in 14days ago...LOLOL Glad I figured it out
What an amazing quilt and how exciting that you're almost done.
Carolmarie No its not hard. Its totally made up of 9 patches and plain square pieces, set on point. The "secret" to the bloom or pixel effect is the fabric choices. You start with 3 squares of plain fabric in the center and then make a row of 9 patches using the center fabric and another fabric that picks up one of the colors in the square round. You continue doing that all the way out.
Wow, this is wonderful. I can not wait to see how you quilt it.
Quilt455 Thank you! I will probably do a general all over on the main body of it. The squares in the 9 patches are 1 1/2 inches, so not much else to do there. The outer border, which is not shown in the photos is about 6in wide and I plan on a meandering vine with leaves and scrolls.
Almost there!!!! And what a finish this one will be...beautiful!
Thanks Mary! I wrapped it around me when it came off the machine last night,am so happy it will be done and on my bed soon :) Next quilt will attempt more than scrolly meandering, but this one really called for no more than that.
Applause and a gorgeous finish!!!
Great job! I've wanted to make a blooming 9 patch. Interesting to read your notes.
wow that is amazing
Wow! This quilt looks so intricate.
