|9-patch Series #4|
The black background makes for a very bold, striking quilt and I love how the penny rug type border makes the black bleed into the border just a bit as well. So very glad I dreamed up this border as the main part of this quilt is a copy (same blocks, different colors) of a sampler quilt I found in 'Great Sets' by Sharyn Craig. I wish I could get a better picture of this quilt, but my house is not well suited to display quilts of this size and I remain a very camera challenged quilter.
The thought of hand quilting this particular quilt makes me feel quite terrified because of all the 'empty' spaces to fill, but for now it's going into a drawer. There are many quilts in line before I get to this one, so I'll have lots of time to contemplate what needs to be done with it. Somehow I always come to terms with the vast gulf between what I think should happen with a quilt and where my experience and skills lie.*wink
