Its always a struggle to pick fabrics and a pattern for the next quilt so in the decision making progress I pulled out some bags of scraps and leftovers and thought I don't have any boyish baby quilts in any of my stacks. Low and behold here is a stack of 50 9 patches! Not only 9 patches but also half square triangles were in the bag. A quilt kit in a bag! Just for me! The top pic shows how many pieces were in my kit. I needed to sew a few more. Then to do some arranging, I like to line things up, is it an obsessive compulsive thing or just me imagining a little boy with his toy trucks or horses following my lines, roads to him, around the quilt.
This is the original quilt with 9 patches and half square triangles and how completely different the same components can look. Back to the sewing room to decide on the next quilt --Ann--
