Blooming nine patch

My next quilt on my 'to-do' list (after I finish a couple other WIP's) is a blooming nine-patch.  I picked my fabrics yesterday and today I fiddled with EQ6 a bit - I couldn't come up with exactly the color choices in the program as I chose, but this is close to what it should look like I guess!

If the quilt turns out anything like the EQ6 picture, I will be ecstatic!  I think it's just lovely!  Here are the fabrics I chose the other day - I decided to leave out the pinky/red one that just to the left of the gold one.

With 4'' finished blocks, EQ6 says it will finish about 90 1/2 x 102.  Sounds about right!  Now I just need to figure out how to make EQ6 tell me how much fabric of each color I need to make sure I have enough of each fabric before I start cutting..........

  1. Oh Wow! If the quilt turns out like the EQ picture...I'd say you have a winner here! I love the center that just GLOWS, and the fading to dark is very striking! Can't wait to see the finished product!
