nine patch

Have you ever made a quilt and you can't decide whether you like it or not? It sounds  strange, I know. It's not rocket science to know whether I like something. And I usually do, but with this nine patch quilt I just can't decide.


 I used a lot of Denyse Schmidt fabrics which I like very, very much but I might have mixed too many colors together in this one? What do you think?


But then again, all those many colors together seem to give the quilt this lovely vintage scrappy feel. And I like that. See what I mean?


So, for now I decided I kind of like it and I started my new Comma nine patch blocks using much more controlled and limited range of colors for a change. I'll let you know how that goes once I get more blocks finished.

Thanks for stopping by. Svetlana

  2. I've definitely had projects that I didn't totally love, but most of the time they end up growing on me! I personally like your quilt a lot. It will be interesting to see the difference though between this colourful, busy version and a more limited version.

  4. What's not to like! I'm a big fan of scrappy and lots of colours going together, so I really like it. It can make a quilt more interesting too as there's more lovely prints to look at and admire! Jxo

  5. I like it - I'm not always a fan of a lot of different colors but I think because it's a nine patch it really works nicely - enough places to rest your eyes. Just lovely!

  7. love it!! My first quilt that I ever made was nine-patch quilt. It is easy to follow and finish up! I love so many DS fabric in this quilt! There are so many candy colors I love!

  8. I really like it. I think because you used a nice calming white and the sashing is wide enough, there more than enough calmness to compensate for the busyness of the colours. Very nice.

  13. I love it! I can always help you by relieving you of it and giving it a good home ;)

    I think the white balances the colour well and it is absolutely beautiful.

  16. I really like it! I think the border makes it. Nice finish!

  17. I love it. I think what makes this wirk is the fact that you used a definite pattern (the 9-patch) & the single solid sashing. At least that is how it works for me.

  18. I love the look of this. You have used a very organised structure and this gives the quilt a very cohesive feel. It all goes together just right.

  19. I like it - particularly with the orange inner border. I've had projects that I fell out of love with during the process, but I usually like them in the end. I think I've only had one that I didn't like and that was probably because I was using up fabrics I didn't like! Hope this one 'grows' on you :)

  21. I know just what you mean, I've had that experience of not being quite sure about something I've made. I love the scrappiness of this, but I can see what you're saying about all the colours

  22. I think it is fabulous. We often scrutinize our own work more than that of others. I bet you'd love it if you saw it on someone else's blog :-)

  23. I love it! The colours work well together, the effect is scrappy but not overwhelming.

  25. Wow! I LOVE it a LOT! Maybe put it away for a while,and you'll see it with new eyes when you get it back out?! I think all of the colors together are awesome, but I love the bright and scrappy look. :)

  26. Well, I like it. It is cheerful, modern and traditional all at once. Give it up for the nine patch.

  27. another Love It vote here. Sometimes working on a piece kind of wears it out in my own eyes, but to fresh eyes I promise that this one is mutli-colored in a good kind of way.
