WIP wed d9p

Up on the wall today I have been working on some 9 patch blocks to make a d9p. I am trying to follow the 4-5 layout that Kristy Daum describes in her 'modernized' version of this quilt.  You can see her layout idea HERE.

I really like how the 9 patches look so it will be hard to cut them up but it will be fun to see what I end up with.  I am trying to mix up some of the neutral and low volume pieces I have for the 5 patch and stick to the MQG colors they picked for their charity quilt for 2016 in the 4 patch bright spots. I think this will be fun!  

At one of my local quilt guilds, I was involved in a design a 'modern' quilt that would be appropriate for children. We have a local organization here called Lincoln Quilts for Kids that give you all the parts and pieces of the quilt but for the thread and batting. You make the kit up and then give it back so it can go to the local hospitals for sick children.  Our guild did a great job with the designs. Many of the members made the quilts up for us to see and others drew up a design.  I decided they should all be made so I worked the last couple of weeks making up all the designs.  These were my stash fabrics and not necessarily what the designers envisioned.  The top geometric shapes quilt won the challenge. It will be made into kits for others to sew.

I made two quilts that I will be donating also. One I already blogged about HERE. The other one I have not taken a picture of yet apparently?  It has been a busy couple of weeks what can I say?  :)

I'm still amazed that you made up all those quilts! And I like what you've got going for the nine patch. I'm looking forward to having some sewing time this weekend, I may finish my one quilt for your 6 or 7! :)
