I want to thank everyone who commented on my nine patch drama. You all were so inspiring and insightful. I thought about what you all said, slept on it, worried about it and then got a notion.
It was a DUH moment for me.
Here's what I came up with.
Light fabric for the folks who voted that way and dark fabric for the others. LOL..... I titled this post "Duh" because it suddenly dawned on me that I had enough blocks to make both quilt tops. I even managed to do one on the diagonal... a real feat for me.
Thanks again everyone!!!
