I got an idea to make 9 patches with three light squares in a line and darker fabrics for the other squares. As I had lots of light’s in my 2.5″ square box I decided to make all the fabrics scrappy (though I mostly stuck to brights) including the whites. The box of squares was starting to muffin top so it definitely needed taming.
Here is an initial look at the first 16 blocks that were made:
I wasn’t loving it but I thought maybe it wil look better when it’s all sewn together. At least I hoped it would.
48 nine patch blocks in total were made. They then were sewn into 12 four patches. Here is the quilt top centre put together.
The further you are away from the quilt the better the pattern shows as shown in this thumbnail picture:
At 36″ x 48″ it’s a bit smaller than I would like it to be. However, I’m done making these 9 patch blocks. I may add a small white border and large in one of the fabrics that is in the quilt – maybe a medium blue or a medium reddish purple.
While I’m not in love with this 9 patch quilt (at least so far) it will make small charity quilt that someone hopefully will appreciate.

Such a fun idea and you are right, the pattern shows better from farther away!
It’s all a matter of perspective! (And that could be its name.)
I think it’s a lovely quilt! Someone is going to simply love this. Such a pretty charity quilt. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.
