Disappearing 9patch

After having a weekend with some terrible headache (migraine) and no sewing, finally I could have some time with my sewing machine again yesterday :-)
I have seen several of the disappearing 9patch quilts on the web, and I have wanted to do one for so long. And I also wanted to make something not so big, to practice quilting on. I think I'll to try to make a babyquilt or something of the blocks, but we'll see. I have no idea yet, how this is going to be quilted, but maybe with some light pink thread?
I have only pieced the purple blocks in rows till now, for the advent table runners, but I will try to do some more with them today. This is a picture of the fabrics I've used. I really love them!







Just a picture of the quilt in red and neutrals. I have to buy more neutrals before I can do more with this. I have used almost all of my light prints on this and the "My blue heaven", so it's staying in the UFO-bin for so long...




On Saturday I received a message on my blog from Gail Pan, and I was thrilled!!! I went to her blog, like she asked me to, and I feel so lucky!! She did draw my name among the three lucky winners for her new pattern "Poppy's sewing set". You can see it here. I look so forward to get the pattern from her, because I really love it, especially the pincushion. It is sooo beautiful!
Cannot wait to get started on it! So this one is for you Gail:-)
