Blooming Burst of Color

I just put the finishing stitches in this Blooming Nine Patch.
The blocks were sewn into rows
and the rows are now sewn into a quilt top.

And it is one bright, fun quilt!

I, obviously, have not trimmed the edges yet.
I was so excited to have the top sewn together,
I just had to share quickly!


 My husband said if I put this on our bed,
we won't need a night light!
I'm just trying to help him out!  :D

 The backing fabric has not been purchased yet.
A friend suggested polka dots.
You know I LOVE polka dots,
so that's what I will look for to finish this wild quilt.

As I've mentioned in previous posts,
this was a kit.
It's the third blooming nine patch I've made
and, by far, my favorite!

The pattern can be found in the book
"Tradition with a Twist"
by Blanche Young and Dalene Young Stone.

I did alter the pattern, but the idea is the same.

Happy Quilting!

it is very pretty, I think with the colors though that I would have had a hard time with layout - not being able to notice mistakes? but seeing as this was your third you most likely were very familiar with it.
