Urban Nine Patch Quilt!

I finished my quilt this evening!  So excited about this one!   I love how it turned out and I finished just in time to enter it in the Bloggers Quilt Festival.


 
I really kept consistent with the quilting on this, not my original plan.  I'm really happy with the decision I made, I like how the quilting ties all the blocks together.
 
 
The border design was a new one for me.  I always like to try something new on my own quilts.  It sort of reminds me of a knitted sweater.


I wanted to do something fun for the binding and love the green and white stripe.



My new favorite quilt...for now.  

Thanks for taking a peek and thanks Amy for putting this together!

Habibti at Home said...

Holy moly I think I just found my absolute favorite quilt of the show!!! This is breathtaking!! How beautiful! I assume you are a long arm quilter? The quilting is stunning but so is the colors and pattern. Are you selling this quilt? I rarely want to buy someone else's quilt but this is really special!!! I am blown away!

Anonymous said...

I love everything about your beautiful quilt.

Poppyprint said...

I'm very sorry that I missed this quilt entirely before I nominated earlier today. It's absolutely beautiful!!

Habibti at Home said...

I nominated your quilt for favorite bed quilt and for favorite professionally quilted quilt - although I'm not sure if you are considered a professional or not but the quilting looks so professional! Good luck!

Pam said...

WOOOOOOOOWWOOOOOOWOOOOOOOW AND WOW

Beginners Luck Quilter said...

Wow - it is simply gorgeous. I love looking at it but it depresses me and makes me feel soooo inadequate in comparison. Having the long arm sure does make a totally different end product - green with envy!!

Kati from Kati's Quilting said...

I just stopped in my tracks. What a beauty! I couldn't decide which one I like better, the piecing, the fabrics, the pattern, or the quilting! I couldn't believe what I saw! Really really REALLY fantastic quilt!

quiltmom said...
