Blooming Nine Patch

Oh for heaven's sake, and it was about the best seam I ever sewed:

Ah, that's better, Dear Jane M13:

Bought a devil toy for a little devil:

At work at the LQS last Saturday, I saw the most gorgeous Blooming Nine Patch done all in creams. I must be the last person on Quilting-Earth to hear about this pattern. Here is my version so far; am waiting on reinforcements to do more:

I decided to put a Whig Rose in the center of the Pennsylvania Stars Around the Garden, since it's supposed to be a garden after all and I've always wanted to make a big Whig Rose. This one will be 21" square. Finished the final star block for that one, so those are finally all done. Still don't know what to put in the center of the blue-brown version, and am working on the last two star blocks for it.

You might be the last for that one... (Even I have one of those in my "to be bound" pile.)

All creams - I bet that was lovely!

We love those 'weiner dog babies' here. They come equipped with such a nice squeaker. *squeak-squeak-squeak* It's relentless!

Oh no! You must have screamed when you saw your perfect seam on the wrong side! I forgot what a blooming 9-patch was, but I love it!(Now that you reminded me). Yours will be sensational!

Actually, I had not heard of the Blooming Nine Patch either, so thank you for sharing it with us. It's lovely.

Hmmm, you're not the last person, as I haven't heard of a Blooming Nine Patch either. And I see by your comments that we're in good company!

Rembrandt is doing a good job helping (and getting bigger!) Love your blooming 9-patch. Someday I'll get around to making one of those...
