A Finish and a Third!

I finished my dqs9 quilt last night!
About 23" square.
I braved the mosquitoes so the photo 
could be taken outdoors this afternoon.
I think it was worth being swarmed...
the colors show nicer & are more true.
This afternoon, I made block 3 for Paul & Rachel's quilt.
Let me just say...there will be 25 of these blocks.
You may get very bored looking at them.
For sure, you will run out of adjectives!  
That's all I have.

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with all thy might. - Ecclesiastes 9:10

The Dqs9 quilt is great! Is it on a black background? I have never thought of using black for a background but it looks wonderful, it really makes the other colors pop.
Very nice,
Are you not liking the other little quilt? Are they hard colors to work with?
It all looks good, I have missed your updates on what you have been up too,
Have a great evening.

It does look nice outside. Mine always get washed out even without sun. Both wonderful pieces. I am still working on cleaning and did four loads of wool, but getting there.
