I jumped on the Charm Pack Cherry bandwagon with this free pattern from Fat Quarter Shop.
My fabrics are 'Sphere' by Zen Chic for Moda, and Bella Solids Platinum.
This came together really quickly, even though I had to cut my solids into 5" squares because I didn't find this color in precuts. I don't know exactly how long it took, because I only got to work on it in small increments of time, due to the 'day job' and the five-year old. But if I say it was quick and easy, an experienced quilter could knock it out in a snap.
All my 9-patches before slicing.
Indoor pic last night after I finished. I really love how the colors came together. I made no effort at any time as I was piecing to do anything other than make sure two identical fabrics were not touching. Other than that, the placement is totally random (in accordance with pattern placement/layout of course).
This morning I was able to get a pic in some natural light. Not outside, but right by the door. (In fact hanging on the door!)
Aren't those colors fabulous together?!! I'm going to call this one 'Night Sky'.
I am really anxious to get some backing and binding and get this baby quilted. I love it!
I already want to make another one by this pattern. The only thing I might change is I think I might make a few more blocks and add another row (or two). This one comes out 'square' (52 x 54) and I'm not a big fan of square (except in baby quilts).
Linking up today with Marelize for Anything Goes Mondays.
