There were times when I wondered whether I would make it to finishing point.
It took 111 nine patch blocks, so with the border pieces it took over 1,000 pieces to complete.
A lot of pinning and piecing was required to finish and I definitely have to do something quite different for my next project.
That said, I am actually very happy with the outcome of the quilt. I like the way the nine patches are captured within a wide floral border.
I had my doubts about how they might look but they seem to blend in with the whole scheme of things and so I am glad I found a use for them.
The pattern for this is free from Fons and Porter and is called Nine Patch Rings.
