Here is a beautiful blooming nine patch made by Jeannie. She was in a class I taught earlier this year.
She used a Two Sisters fabric line from Moda. It is unusual to be able to do a whole blooming nine patch from one line but this one was perfect. It starts as very light in the center and ends up green in the borders. I did a freehand swirl allover on it and it gives it the texture that allows the fabric to shine. It is a very large quilt!
