These nine patches were from a swap I participated in over a year ago (two?). The pattern is Carefree Romance, from Quilt Sampler magazine, Spring/Summer 2010. I like how the hourglass blocks frame the nine patches and am happy with my color and fabric choices pulling the blocks together.
The pattern calls for two plain borders, one narrow and one wide. These are my selections left to right for inner border, outer border, backing, and binding. I will have to do some creative cutting of the yardage to get my outer borders all going the same way with the stripe, and will be piecing leftovers for the backing. I've already done all the MATH for a cutting list and just hope my calculations are good! What's not on my design floor is the Jewel Box quilt--I finally got all the blocks made (see yesterday's post) and the rows stacked up for assembly. See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.
