A secret quilt, 01

I am working on a new quilt, I am very excited about this one. It took me a while to decide which direction to take this quilt and I finally figured it out. Thank you to my cousin Robin and to Bill, from The Quilt Store, for staring at a huge stack of bolts with me for close to an hour. Here are the twelve fabrics that will be featured. Many of them are from the collections of Kaffe Fassett, Philip Jacobs, and Brandon Mably.

Here is an example of the nine patch that completes the first step of these blocks.
I cut the nine patch block down the middle horizontally and vertically.
This is an example of the disappearing nine patch block that will be created. But I will be using a more random approach in my piecing. The four pieces that come together to create the finished block will not all come from the same nine patch block that is cut apart.
Stay tuned for an update on this quilt. It is not technically at the top of my to do list when I consider deadlines, but it is so much fun to work on that it is hard to leave it alone. I have a feeling it will be finished soon.
