WiP Wednesday #16 – Disappearing Nine Patch Has Disappeared
Finally! The disappearing nine patch has left the building! Way back in January for my Sunday Stash #11, I came home with these beauties (insert ironic tone here). At the time, all I could see was floral and pink, and well, that’s pretty much what I see now, too. However, there’s now a scented blend of passion fruit, peony and vanilla orchid, with a dry down of musk, cashmeran and oakmoss* permeating the air around my sewing machine. Lovely.
During Sunday Stash #15, I added to the madness with more things pinks and cream. Sigh.
But you see that Pfaff sewing machine? That’s been on loan from my mother-in-law while I make this quilt for her. I like to call this sewing for my livelihood. I sew what I don’t like, so I have the means to sew what I love. Talk about a sewing dichotomy I live through.
Through all of these first world problems–so, so, tough, I really don’t know how I cope–I managed to make my nine patch blocks. Okay, not as bad as I thought. Still floral, but the stripe and the houndstooth make it a bit more sophisticated, and the cream gives it some breathing room.
On Sunday, I left the completed top, and a pieced back (photo below) in the good hands of Jane Davidson from Want It, Need It, Quilt and her longarm services. I know this D9P will eventually reappear for me to bind, but for now, I’m glad for it to be out of my space. Does anyone know how to get rid of the smell of musk, cashmeran and oakmoss?
While, not entirely my cup of tea, I think this quilt has huge (90″x104″) potential.
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday!
