I Love Bright!

And tonight I decided to go for broke and stitch a little fun!    Six big nine patches made from nine 6" squares, then cut them into disappearing nine patches and sew them back together.  Love working with these fun colours.  Next decision is to choose border fabric.  I need about 6 inches on all sides.

This quilt is only small - so far 29" by 42".  Add a 6" border and it will be about 41" by 54" and that will make it a nice lap size quilt for a child.  I am off to audition border fabrics and maybe even find a backing!
I have to sew borders and piece a backing for an AHQ project tomorrow so hopefully I can do this one while I am in the bordering mood!

Till next time..............happy stitching!
