Blogger's Quilt Festival: Something Yellow
The block is a famous one, if only I could remember the name! It is a 9-patch in which each patch of the nine patch is made up of a 4-patch of 1/2 squares triangles, except for three across the center, corner-to-corner in a tic-tac-toe style. Yes, the name of the block would be easier. Soooo I made nine of them (9-patch again) & they make a good sized lap/nap quilt.
The back of the quilt is a surprisingly similar color-way: a goldy brown background with fleur de lis of yellows, oranges & powder blues. I have no idea why I bought it, if you asked me I would have said it was not my thing at all, but apparently it very much IS. As you can see, the quilt back precisely matches my dog.
I do not care so much how not accurate the parts are as the quilt itself turned out just fine. So just fine that I have started another one (not with scraps but with fabric actually chosen for it) & I plan to quilt in the same side-to-side-but-otherwise-no-thoughts pattern.
& this is my submission for the Blogger's Quilt Festival.
