Disappearing Nine Patch

Judy @ Patchwork Times has inspired me to make a Disappearing Nine Patch. Here are my first few blocks. As a new quilter, this quilt is going to challenge and stretch me to sew and cut precisely. I've got to get in the habit of sewing a scant 1/4". Tomorrow I will check my machine again for the 1/4" line.
The floral print was my inspiration fabric. I think I'll change the lightest blue - it seems too faded for the rest of the patterns and colors. I have no idea how large this is going to be. I'm thinking this is a charity quilt for Quilts for Richmond.

Fat Quarter Stars Quilt Along

Can't wait to begin this quilt through the Fat Quarter Stars Quilt Along. Mom and I bought the Neutral Mediterranean fat quarters this week. Several others are from my stash. These are normally not my colors but I want to stretch myself a bit with color.
