What are you most proud of? The way the colors work together and that the quilt tells a story. In the center of the quilt there are 3 dragonflies. I call the quilt "Into the Night" because it tells the story of the colors in the dragonflies' day was they start out in the pink of the morning and move on into the dark purple of night. This is the second quilt I made. I had it professionally quilted by Judy Hall of Rockwall, TX. It is a king size.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? You need to keep up with which fabric goes where. I was taught that the secret to a good blooming nine patch was the removal and the return of colors throughout the sections of the quilt. The colors bloom. Stay organized and you will have a lot of fun.

Other than to say I believe if you google Blooming Nine Patch there may be a tutorial, or a free pattern I don't know where you could get the patern. I took this as a class and the instructor wrote out the pattern for us.
