A quilty update!

So here it is..... the beginnings of my little quilt for the swap. I went with a variation of the crazy 9-patch pattern. It is an easy block to sew and, in my opinion, visually pleasing. It might be a little "elementary" as far as quilt patterns go but I am still in the baby stages of learning. I hope my swap partner is open to my beginner indulges... What's that you ask??? Yes....that IS two of the same fabrics side by side...UGH! I was hoping no one would notice. I really had to repress the OCD side of myself and not unpick the whole thing to fix this little boo-boo. I am really loving the colors and how they "play" together. It reminds me of strawberry lemonade!!

Yours is sooo pretty!

Mine isn't going so well. I made the entire top (it was a hot air balloon floating in the sky) and now I have to start over due to using orange which my partner hates (I thought she said green LOL).

Oh well, I guess I made a top for Etsy. I did not even notice the two identicle prints together until you pointed it out!
