Blooming Trellis

The blooming 9 patch is quilted and bound.  For the first time in a very long time, I did only a minimum of quilting on this quilt--after the Evening Serenade with 5 pounds of thread, guess you can understand why!   The pattern is very busy and it would not be seen anyway, so I decided to just use straight lines to create a trellis around the center.  In the center ---the light area--- I  drew and quilted a fleur-de-lis type design.  So here's the Blooming Trellis.
I tried to get a good photo of the quilted center but my camera went on the fritz, and I was lucky I think to get this one.   Maybe new camera time, or at least new battery!
 Anyway, current UFOs are done.  I am feeling the need for  some simple sewing and more play time on the design wall.  Probably I will  try a colorwash project I have had on my mind.  Let me put together a couple of strip sets and see how it goes before I share anymore. 
Have a great weekend and happy stitching.

It's beautiful! Your fabric selection worked out great. I love colorwash. I want to get out my box of 2.5" squares and play with another colorwash but I have to quilt some things first. My current UFO's definitely aren't done. Congratulations for sticking to it and getting yours done.

Debbie, it turned out just lovely! I like your idea of the grid being a kind of trellis. Very nice!
