Blooming Nine Patch Budding

Worked on it all day yesterday and this am before work. The assembled section:

and the still-to-assemble section on the design wall:

It was going to be so massive that I took out the second color, which called for some unsewing and resewing. And aren't we always relieved when we force ourselves to make those unsewing corrections... I just love it and am really pushing to get it assembled so I can get back to earlier projects :-) .

I'm completely loving the piece. Can't wait to see more progress. Isn't it amazing how the simplicity of a ninepatch block can be turned into this awesome quilt.

Assembling all the big strips is so difficult, esp diagonally. It is wonderful. I want to see the fabric closer. Love it!
