Design Wall Nine Patches

 First I thought I wanted diagonal row of 9 patches.  Then I glanced at it without turning the lights on in my sewing room and I saw a partial ring of dark around some light fabrics so I made more rings.
I grouped 9 patches by color and value and the alternating blocks also by color and value.
 
 The blues gravitated to the outside of the quilt.
 A few more fabric changes and the outside border of blue 9 patches moved to the odd double 9 patch blocks making the blues zig zag around the quilt.
I will look at this for a couple days before I sew it together and probably move a few more blocks.  Linking to Patchworktimes Design Wall Monday  
Another great day to quilt here on the prairie. --Ann--

OH, I love your design! Isn't it fun to see how the fabrics arrange themselves sometimes? It's going to be beautiful.
