We've been having problems with out internet connection so I couldn't even go blog hopping while I was laid up. Its finally fixed-I hope-and I'll be around visiting very soon.
I'd been working on the commission quilt-remember those beautiful bright fabrics-lots of oranges-that I showed a while ago. Well here's a peek at what I've done with them.
Yes, it is a disappearing 9 patch-that was the design the customer picked...I played with it a bit and turned the blocks on point and turned some to form double Xs whle others were positioned
to make long "slashing" rectangles. Its now basted and half machine quilted-I hope to finish quilting the center tomorrow and then the border (which you can't see in this pix.) I need to get this finished before allergy season hits...I can see the mango trees are starting to bloom already.
