Goodness you are a quilting machine! I guess this will be all wrapped up in about two days. haha.

Its looks like it's going to be awesome, both of your inspriations are fantastic. :)

Do you ever have trouble matching up fabrics for something scrappy or just go w/the chaos of a lot of different prints/colors? I *tried* to make a scrappy square the other day and used what I had on hand, but don't care much for it - wish I had a better eye for these things! Yours looks great and the inspiration quilts looked good as well - I think I just need to build up my stash more to have more choices!

SewAmy said...

this will be really cute.

Patty said...

I looked up the inspirational quilt and love how it looks; especially the border of blocks. This is going to be one nice quilt!

Sarah said...

Love the start you have and LOVE those inspiration quilts. Can't wait to see the finished quilt!

Anina said...

I love nine-patches! Have fun! Now if I can just get Christmas packed away maybe I can start a new project too...

Louann said...

It's going to be great. I have a nine patch WIP also, but more of a country color quilt. I also wanted to let you know that I am almost finished with a Flea Market Fancy quilt top. I used aqua and brown. I'll let you know when I finish and will post a pic on my blog. I love the simplicity of it!

A red and aqua quilt is on my list too this year. Can't wait to see yours finished.

Those are too cute. I do love the quilt you're going after. May have to do this myself! Happy Monday!

Carrie P. said...

Great fabrics. It is going to be a very cute quilt when you get done.

Mama Urchin said...

I love it already, so is it going to be bed sized?

amandajean said...

CAB,

i've found that for scrap quilts it helps to edit your color scheme. any aqua and red prints will go in here, as long as they aren't large scale prints. i had some yellow and green 9 patches that i made, but they looked horrid with these, so i edited them out already. adding the white sashing should tie these remaining blocks together nicely. i hope that helps!!

Such beautiful inspiration quilts! I can see why you were drawn to create your own version. It looks as if it is going to be a wonderful quilt. :)

Julianna said...

Oh, please send out the dimensions of your 9 patch scraps and the sashing? I really love that quilt!

Jenifer said...

oooo, I love that scrappy nine-patch inspiration quilt... thanks for sharing. I'm feeling scrappy this year!!

juliana,

the small squares are cut 2.5" and will finish at 2". the sashing will be the same, 2" finished, i think.

This is looking great! I like this idea. It's got me thinking... hmmmm... just got some fat quarters... hmmm.

Nanci said...

I love the color combination but frankly don't remember seeing alot of aqua fabrics but it looks great. I can't wait to see the final results. To think I'm still working on the quilt a block from 2007 or so, you are a quilting machine!

I love the color scheme. Very pretty!

Renee said...

Lovely!!

Nanci said...

So, Amandajean, you said you were going to take it easy in the New Year. You know, sore back, sore fingers and your compulsion to quilt quilt quilt. I see you are taking your own advice.
Other than loving the blocks, I just don't know what to say....

jacquie said...

oooooh...there's that fab color combo again. i know i'm going to love this!

Linda said...

They look lovely! I'm sure it will be really pretty when you are finished with it. I hope you are taking some time to let your arms rest, though. I'm itching to start something new. Something like this one might be good for my scraps, too.

Renee said...

It's going to be so pretty! Can't wait to see the final product.

Thimbleanna said...

Oh. My. Gosh.

This is going to be another of your fabulous quilts!

I. Can't. Wait

Qubie said...

The start of the quilt looks great. I am like you I love both of the quilts. I want to make both these quilts. They look like so much fun.

WoolenSails said...

Great design and love the colors you are going to use. Can't wait to see it finished.

pratima said...

Very pretty! The cherry print are so sweet!!

Loving your blog, always something new to see and so much helpful information. I understand why you'd need to give your arms a rest! What I was wondering is how you feel about giving stuff away. Do you know when you start that it's for charity or a friend, or do you just start something and figure out afterwards what to do?
I ask because I find it hard to give away something that I've spent so long on.

amandajean said...

kathleen,

i am the same way....some quilts are hard to give away. for some, i start with a recipient in mind. for some i finish and then i decide to give them away-it all depends. i also find it hard to use my best fabrics if i know i'm going to give it away....but i'm getting better at that. :)

MichelleB said...

It's looking just wonderful. I love the inspiration quilts, too. There are just so many quilts out there that need to be to made.

Diane said...

Happy, happy blocks!

Amanda said...

I love the inspiration quilt, too. It just goes to show that simple is gorgeous. You're quilt is going to be beautiful. I love the color combination.

Beth said...

Ashley said...

Very cute, and great colors too! I can't wait to see the finished quilt!

denitza said...

Beautiful! I'm in love with this color combo right now! I'll be waiting to see the end result!

Tine said...

The nine-patch you have linked to is one of my Flickr-favs :) And I think it will be absolutely stunning in your colorscheme...and probably very different from the multi-colored version :)

Katherine said...

This is a colour combo fave of mine and I'm certain it will be a knockout quilt.

Kerri said...

love the colors!! can't wait to see it put together! it's going to be stunning. :)

Marcia said...

I love both those quilts. Can't wait to see this one completed. I hope you are keeping this one. It will be a beauty.

Chara Michele said...

That is going to make a lovely quilt! :)
