Blooming Finale

My Blooming 9-Patch is finally finished. 
(Well, if you don't count the label.) 

When I took her outside for her photo shoot she proved to be very photogenic.

So, I think she really needs to be named. 

Since she starts with the purple in the center and blooms out to the vibrant oranges and yellows, her name will be 
"Blooming Sunshine."

As you can see, she is the perfect backdrop for the orange flowers.

I have documented each step of this quilt. 

 Just click here and you can see the entire process of this quilt coming together, even from my selecting the fabric from my stash. (My only purchase was for the binding.)

In this picture you can see my house. Do you notice that the front door is orange. That would not be a surprise to any of my quilting friends. Also, last fall we had the house resided and last week my daughter and I painted the garage doors to match. They look so much better now. I would really like the carriage style garage doors, but painted will have to do for now.

Wow I love your Blooming Nine patch. I'm amazed everything came from your stash. I love the colors.
About 7 years ago I did a Blooming
Nine Patch. The hardest part of doing this quilt for me was cutting
it out. Thanks for sharing. Oh you
Lilies are so pretty.
