Something old...Some thing new..

Starting the 350 block count for 2017.  I picked up a pack of 9 patches at a state meeting. The fabrics were very very traditional ie I believe the 70's with that dusty rose pink.  Forgive me if you love that color but I certainly dont.  I tried a disapearing  nine patch. That looking pretty bad to me.  Mind you the blocks did not have contrasting
value. Than I got the idea to miss two blocks together. The result was chaos.  And I WASTED alot of time trying to improve it.  Finally it was give up or ... It is a small swiss dot and it does lie flat
I hadn't ironed enough before the photo. It  is a lap quilt now... Hopefully some one will love it.(Donation scrappy quilt one 17 blocks.
