Bit of a digression

I have a dozen or so art quilts that are uncompleted, but I can't get motivated to finish them. You know how it is.

So I decided to do something completely different. And what could be more different from art quilts than a quilt made up of plain and nine patch blocks? But I confess that I have a sneaky love for nine patches. This is just laid out to see if I like the arrangement. The fabric is almost all from South Africa, and either brought back from when my daughter and her boyfriend visited there (Erlo is from SA) - that's the animal prints- or given to me by a SA friend - the black and grey designs.

Wow Shirley you have been working hard with that - 9 patches are one of my weaknesses too - they are so simple and so versatile. I love the african theme that you have used. What a great present it could be when you need to make a quilt in a hurry.

I love it, such a simple idea and so effective. It highlights the KISS theory yet again. I can see one of these in my future.DF
