Retro Nine Patch

I finished all the embroidery on the Retro Nine Patch blocks earlier in the week. The basket blocks were just posted to finish it, but I am thinking I may get on my EQ7 and come up with my own finishing blocks. I'll see what I can come up with. I took some pictures of the finished stitcheries, but some of them came out kind of blurry. Sorry. What can I say? Photography is not my thing. LOL
The next two blocks...
And the center block...
Now I need to figure out how I want to finish this one.  I started on Chicken Hearted yesterday. I have the base put together, the half square triangles made,  and all the applique pieces prepped. I hope to work on it in a bit.

I think I will work out first. Tomorrow is weigh-in day. Uggg! Not looking forward to that. I ate quite a bit of high calorie food last weekend. I guess I'll see if it decided to stay with me or not. LOL While picking up some of the 'not so good for me' food last weekend, I also found a little bit of fabric. I got these at Walmart. Our Walmart just went through a remodel. Oh my! How I hated going in there for a while, but I will have to say, it does look great now. I am starting to figure out where things are, so I don't hate going in there any more. (grin) Anyway, the two fabrics on the left were bought for skirts for me. Once I lose another 20 lbs, I plan to make them as a treat. (grin)
The brown is intended for a backing of a small quilt and the purple is just because I liked it. LOL
Then I saw these fat quarters and just had to have a few. I am thinking these would work good in an applique flower quilt.
I spread the fat quarters out so you could see the colors a little better.
Well, I guess that is it for me for today. It is still to wet to work in the garden, plus the heat and humidity has arrived. So I think I will go work out before it gets any hotter. Then I can play this afternoon. (grin) Thank you for visiting. Please come again. Have a great day.

Your stitcheries are beautiful! There are so many possible ways to go with all of those wonderful new fat quarters.

I love your stitcheries Winona!! I also love the fabric you stitched them on to. I couldn't figure out if the fabric was cream or white because of how the camera interpreted it though the last picture looks like it's cream....which is it?
