Crazy nine

When Blake was turning a year old I determined that when all my kids turn a year old I would make them a special quilt. This is just an excuse to let me quilt to my heart's desire. This year my friend Linda sent me a great pattern called the crazy nine quilt. I had so much fun picking out the fabric and getting it all together. When I was piecing it together it didn't look good and I was a bit worried. But I forged on and I think it turned out great! It pretty much matches Kalli's personality in that she is crazy and loud just like the quilt. 
I am also planning another one of these for a Christmas surprise and I can't wait to get started on it. You may just be the recipient!

Call me dumb but do I actually see 9's in the quilt? I can make out some sort of pattern that makes me see 9's everywhere...then again I could have stared at it too long! (I am not a quilter...can you tell?)
