One of my favourite things about being part of this amazing, creative, online community of ours is having the opportunity to celebrate the successes of so many talented people that I'm honoured to call friend.  Sedef from Down Grapevine Lane is one such lady who has published her first book!  Adorable.  Sweet.  MAJOR eye-candy!  These are just a few words that come to mind as I marinate in the pages filled with fun projects and beautiful fabrics.

I chose the mini quilt called "Nine Patch" as my project for this hop.  I had so.much.fun pulling all my favourite fabrics in my favourite colours!  And it went together so quickly.  Super fun for any skill level. :)

I made a few little changes to my verison.  Mine only has 9 blocks instead of the 16 shown in the book because when I made the block with the fussy cut chocolate, I knew it would look best in the center of the quilt - bull's eye style ;).  And I was inspired by Sedef's embroidered running stitches to add little colonial knots around my blocks. 

Congratulations Sedef!

These french knots are just cutest on your quilt. What a lovely, creative idea. They look great on your quilt but the idea would be brilliant used anywhere.

This is so extremely pretty! The linen-colored thread and the French knots are perfect! Where do you get such pretty fabric? I'm looking for some Atsuko prints and am not sure where to find them. Do you have any favorite online shops? Thanks!

So cute. I think I would like to make one like it but I have such a problem with colors. I can do well with around 3 colors, but anymore than that & I am lost. I have started just cutting strips and then putting them in line order and never deviating from the order. Whatever happens, happens.
