He Sees Green, I See Purple
It's almost as though I woke up one morning and found that this flimsy had grown on my wall overnight. I don't recall planning or starting this quilt. I do know that I was piecing nines when someone dear phone to say she needed inspiration to make a quilt in a hurry and I told her 6" blocks with nines. So this quilt is kind of a mystery. It needed to be made -- why, I don't yet know.
Once I had the blocks all up on the wall the way I wanted them, Joe took a look and said it needed some narrow lattice. I wasn't at all sure about that, but he seldom makes a suggestion, so I went ahead and started cutting. I decided if I were going to do lattice I'd just go ahead and do cornerstones (they finish at 1/2") and that led to arranging said cornerstones in a diagonal pattern going down from left to right. It needs a border, and I'm going to let it rest a bit before making that move. If I were going to do it now, I'd try to track down some of that green-background floral (column 3, row c). Himself thinks its a mostly green quilt. I see purple.
All opinions will be considered.
