The other disappearing Nine Patch

As I mentioned in my last post, I liked the process of making a disappearing nine patch so much that, as soon as I'd finished the first one, I pulled out fabrics for another one. From my stash this time.

While sitting on the floor, playing with batiks, my husband came along and said he liked the colors. So, this is his quilt, blues, greens, aquas. It, too, went together easily, laying out the blocks took almost more time than the actual sewing. And no matter how hard I tried, there still were a couple of places where the same fabrics ended up touching. Oh well ..............
I started with lots of these:
Made a few of these:
And a few of those:
Which were cut into this:

And were then sewn into this:
As usual, the colors aren't true (even with lots of fiddling), but they are in this picture:
Too bad, I promised it to my husband, I kind of like it myself.

And on a totally unrelated note, my grandbaby was born this morning. Mom and  little daughter are fine, but pretty tired.

I am linking up with Randi of i have to say for Show and Tell Tuesday.
