Nine patches done


The nine patches for my next quilt are done. I don't know why but when I take pictures of the pink it seems to wash out. It is a pretty soft rose pink, much like the color of the RIT dye box I showed in my previous post. I have now to sew on the triangles to make these nine patches on point. I will start that today and complete them through out the week.
I am still working on ripping out the stitching on my other quilt. It is a slow process, I only work on it while watching television, which is only in the evenings. I will get there hopefully this week. I so want to get that quilt done, and out of the way. I will most likely do a pantograph on it instead of custom work. The quilt would be beautiful with custom but I am so done with it I don't think I have it in me to do that anymore. Do any of you quilters out there ever feel that way?
I am done with quilting the July HAD. I have to trim and put the binding on. I am going to cut the binding and sew that on when I am finished with this post. I am going to do the binding with strips of the colored fabric. I think it will be a fun binding to go with the bright quilt. I am also tired of stitching down one continuous color binding and this will be nice for a change.
Have a good week. Dot

I can see the soft pink, but you can tell the pics are washed out looking. I can't wait to see your HAD quilt. Mine is still in the piecing stage. :(

I have the same problem with taking pictures and having the true colors show. It will be a beautiful quilt.

I'm eager to see how this one will turn out. I really like the pale pink with the black!

Love the nine patches you've pieced, they do look soft and pink. The HAD for July is a stunner! Well done!!

I see the pink, but I think when there is high contrast like between your fabrics, the digital camera has a hard time with them. Love the HAD!

The pink is pretty. I can't wait to see the finished quilt. That was a really good idea you had to dye the fabric.
