I have to admit that I fell completely out of love with this quilt as it went along. I love the fabrics, like the idea, but those 9 patches took all the fun out of it for me, even though each one was different. It's a lesson for me: I'm just not cut out for too much repetition - I made myself do it, but it's not a road I will be walking along again in a hurry!
But enough whingeing, it's done for now and I quite like it, but no more than that. Maybe by the time I come to quilt it I will have warmed to it a bit more.
At least, to finish on a cheerful note, I tried something new with my fabric choices: I have definitely enjoyed this quieter palette and think I will consider turning to these tones again at some point.
