Two Nine-Patches Completed

I have completed the 2 nine-patches I was working on and have decided they will be the beginnings of a moon quilt. I love working with the blues and have started accumulating some indigo fabric. One very kind and generous blogging friend even sent me some indigo dyed thread and 2 moon squares. They will definitely be included in this quilt. Here are some photos of the 2 nine-patches and I've included a piece of the brown velvet fabric used in one of the blocks. It was just a scrap that I found at the last Houston quilt show. Hoping to come home with lots of great finds this year as well. Click on photos for close-ups.

Jude's cloth to cloth class was simply fabulous and is highly recommended. She is planning another one so if you are interested, be sure to follow along for more news on her blog.

The beginnings of a moon quilt - that´s good - "jedem Anfang wohnt ein Zauber inne", as Goethe put it - in every beginning, there´s MAGIC, ha...

these blocks are fantabulous. as exciting and inspiring as the class was I believe the after-effects, as people get progressively more involved in working their learnings into their personal style(s) will be downright mind-blowing.

thanks, acey. i'm feeling more confident with the techniques we've learned from jude and don't spend as much time trying to figure out what to do next.

lovely deanna, i like the idea of a moon quilt. indigo and brown always looks together like jeans and brown leather sandals.
love the new pop-up comments window, cheers, k.

Beautiful...but then again, your work always is. You have an eye. You have style. These two pieces are proof thereof written.

Gorgeous, gorgeous! Love the indigo moon and weaving. In the first pic. did you weave right onto the cloth? Love them. I started weaving too and it's a bit addictive already - have a great weekend - Hugs Nat

These are lovely. I especially like the one with the bright orange/pink weaving in the corner squares -- and the offset diagonal one in particular.

Patty said...

These are great! You really took a leap in that class...like a whole
new way of seeing happened to you!
