Half a Blooming Nine-Patch

I've been picking away at sewing the Blooming 9-patch together.  I've decided to sew it together in two halves.   I think I'll machine quilt it that way and then stitch the two half quilts together.  I'm researching quilt-as-you go methods so that it doesn't show from the top.  I'm sure I saw Marti Michel do a demo in a video somewhere...  
So here's one half of my Blooming 9-patch.....










And here's the other half...  I'll get to it next week.

Your quilt has a nice warm "glow". It will be interesting to learn how your quilting experiment goes.

Hello from Windsor, Nova Scotia! :) (My daughter and her family live in Harvey/work in Fredericton...) I just wanted to say thank you for helping me understand the layout for the Blooming 9-Patch. I look forward to reading more of your posts. Happy Quilting!
