D9P QAL


Drool....I just love me some purple!
 And these are my choices for the 

 Disappearing 9 Patch Quilt-A-Long 


It's not too late to get in on the fun!  Freda has some helpful guidelines for quilt sizes and suggestions on block arrangement.


I had decided to make a lap size quilt using 2 of my large charm packs in a safari print, but the neutrals provided weren't enough.  With a plan to locate more, somehow today I did a 180, taking another direction.


I was fortunate enough to get in on some deals several months back, when an online quilt shop was liquidating.  Every week, the discounts were deeper. 




 It didn't take long to cut the 5x5 squares.
 
The fabric line is called "Good Fortune" by Kate Spain for Moda.
What a great way to begin a new year!
It was time to break it free from drawer jail. Yep!  I'll be using fabric only my stash.







You can see I haven't sewn the block together...that's why the disappearing magic didn't work yet.
