I never intended to start on a new quilt now. It just started itself:-D. Here are my twelve nine patches placed with black fabric. The border will be green with purple cornerstones. I checked in Rachel Pellman's book Amish Wall Quilts, and this is mid western style. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Have decided on the quilting motifs also. So now I just have to draw templates for the border on freezer paper and then draw the quilting design onto them before I cut the fabric.
Finally we're getting some winter around here. If this is how it looks tomorrow, we will have our first skiing trip in nine years tomorrow afternoon right after work.
