Frere Jacques Quilt - Work in Progress

I'm excited about starting this quilt. I will use it on my bed. The quilt that's currently on my bed I made more than 15 years ago. It's still in great shape and looks beautiful but ever since I painted my bedroom and replaced the flooring, I want to upgrade everything in the room, including the quilt. The quilt is under a bedspread which makes me think I am making it last longer.

I found this pattern called Frere Jacques which is a version of an Irish Chain. I saw the pattern on Pinterest and saved it, then when I went to a Quilt Expo in September, a vendor had it in her booth. I jumped at the chance to purchase it.

That's when the fun of picking up fat quarters for the project. I took this photo of the art that hangs over the bed with me in order to color match to the painting. I picked up fat quarters wherever I went. I chose a white Moda Grunge for the background.

I ordered a hexagon ruler to cut the centers and while I'm waiting for it to come I thought I would start sewing the 9-patch blocks. I made 312 of them. I might make more to make the quilt bigger. I'm not sure about that yet; if it seems too hard to make - that will change my mind. Haha!
