This is what was left
after making thirteen of these
When I finished adding the sides and tops to the blocks, I couldn't wait to lay them out as they will be in the quilt with some of the nine patch blocks I made probably a year ago *blushing*
I am a terrible procrastinator.
If you looked at the pattern shown in yesterday's post (here), you will notice that I omitted the red from the nine patch block centers. Instead, I chose this adorable print for the centers. I also used only green batik prints for the other eight patches in the blocks. I think not adding other colors into the mix makes them more appealing.
In my opinion, having red centers for the nine patch blocks competes with the red in the ladybugs. I like this fabric a lot better. Now there is nothing competing with the ladybugs as the focus of the quilt.
On a totally different subject, Alsley will be fourteen this Thursday...Fourteen! Where has the time gone? It seems to have evaporated. He is the best dog ever and I tell him so everyday when I give him his breakfast.
