Design Wall Monday

About a year ago I saw this arrangement of nine patches and squares at Laundry Basket Quilts. I love the simplicity of these blocks. Sewing nine patches is mindless, the arranging of the blocks is where my brain perks up to create visual movement.  I was working with fat quarters so even my background fabric was limited. A random scattering of background blocks was messy looking so I grouped them in diagonal rows. The nine patches were sewn from 2 inch strips and the alternating blocks are 5 inches. Linking to Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday and be inspired.--Ann--

Your quilt looks like a meadow.. so soft with pops of color. I love to make 9 patches, too. Mindless yet satisfying. Beautiful quilt!
