Red and Aqua Quilt #1
November 9, 2009 Leave a comment
This is block #1 and post #1 on this super fun quilt (I decided that the previous post, my inspiration pictures, didn’t really count as the first post in this quilt update since it wasn’t about my particular quilt.)
The following pictures suck for two reasons. One, I took them at 12:30 in the morning, and there is no natural light to be found in my kitchen at any time, let alone in the middle of the night, since I live in California and not Alaska. Two, I am too tired to open Photoshop and touch them up, so this is what ya get for the moment. I’m so proud of actually finishing an entire block that I couldn’t wait another second to post!
One other note – I am not done choosing or cutting fabric for this quilt. If you count carefully, you can see five different fabrics; for a true Disappearing Nine Patch pattern you need nine separate patterns. I know one of the remaining four will be white flannel. And that I need more red, and a little more contrast in print size. Other than that, I have no idea which fabrics I’ll be buying, but I just couldn’t wait one more day to piece part of this and get a start on it. I am seriously having dreams about this baby, lol.
Okay, enough rambling…here we go!
