Floral 9 Patch, Piecing Completed

What a fun little marathon this has been!
As of this evening the 28" X 28" quilt is pieced with the blocks assembled, the back interfaced, and the perimeter zigzagged. I pieced, appliqued, collaged, and fused to get this together here...crazy quilts will assimilate any technique you throw at them, which is why we love making them, right?
I've long thought it would be fun to incorporate more prints into a crazy quilt project...and this one has more than I've ever used before. This is going to be tricky to embellish, but blissful!...

Ahhhh, that felt good!

It's gorgeous so far-hope you are going to blog the embroidery too.

Lovely, just lovely! If it's a "little marathon," does that make it a 10K fun run? I like the dark outer against the light inner. It's like a spotlight effect. And the blue ribbon-y effect is stunning.

Blissful is right!! I would call it "orderly chaos," and will look forward with great interest to seeing the embellishments you come up with to "anchor" it. JAH P.S. this gives me a new challenge for my needlepoint versions. I might have to start painting flowers on a few patches.

It is beautiful! I expecially love the "dark" color used in the "corners".
Can't wait to see the embellishments!
