This week summer has hit Virginia
with temperatures in the high 80's and 90,
so it's appropriate that my
Blooming Nine Patch is finished this week.
I look at this quilt and I think about the bright,
vibrant colors of summer
and the flowers that just burst forth after the cold winter months.
These are all Kaffe prints... my favorites!
The most difficult part of making these quilts
is picking the fabrics.
This started as a kit, but I changed it up a bit.
I'm trying not to let the unevenness of the ends get me down,
but you can see the wave a bit here.
When it was quilted,
I think the biased ends were pulled too much and there is an
obvious difference in the width of the quilt at both ends.
stay stitch each and every quilt before taking it to the LAQ!
The edges don't show here...
just the beautiful fabrics and quilting design shine through.
This quilt will get washed and dried and I'll see if I can't
make the wave less obvious doing this.
it's finished and I'm happy.
