D's Quilt Progress and A Question!

Yesterday I finished the backing for D's quilt. What do you think?? The green flannel was a little too short, so I had to add some extra fabric, which I had wanted to do anyway. I also did the sandwich yesterday, so I just have the quilting part to go!

I also started a new quilt last weekend while visiting my parents. It's a disappearing 9 patch. Are there really any rules to making this? In the first picture, I have them put in random places. In the second picture, I kind of kept the 9 patches together. What do you think?? Do you think I should make the center always be the yellow too (little squares)? It will be the binding as well... Thanks for your help!!

my advice-- go RANDOM. it seems to me that random always looks better and it's so much easier.

AND, seriously, if you use sullivan's quilt basting spray, it will change your life. it's amazing!! seriously.

I wouldn't use a rhyme or reason. It'll stress you out and random does seem to look amazing when it's all done.

I like these best when the center square is the same on the 9 patch - before its cut up - just to have all the little square the same fabric gives the eye a bit of a rest, yet its still random. love that yellow print your using!
