I am working on a quilt for a friend. I think I will make it lap/throw size, so maybe about 55" x 65".
I am using a couple of charm packs of precut 5" squares. There are about 20 different fabrics all from the same fabric line. I bought online. Great quality fabric (Moda) but not necessarily the colours I thought were in the package. I was aiming for yellows and greens but there seems to be quite a few reds, pinks and even some of the yellows are leaning more to orange.
Regardless I am going to use the fabric I bought for this project.
(My fabric collection/stash is worthy of a whole other post and perhaps even some therapy.
I could use all prints but I thought it would be too busy so I am using some white squares -- really nice creamy white. I think it might be Kona by Kaufman.
If I use the disappearing 9-patch it might be set on point (so it looks like a diamond rather than the straight edges parallel to the top and sides. I am also thinking about alternating the disappearing 9-patch blocks with a solid block -- probably a pale green of some sort since many of the prints seem to have a spot of green. I think the charm pack is called Bumble Berry or something similar.
I have made a couple blocks trying to decide which pattern to use.
I am looking for opinions/advice.
Which block do you like?
Here is the first block. It is a Disappearing 9 - Patch.
