Urban Nine Patch Quilted!!


I quilted my Urban Nine Patch quilt today.  I was having some trouble decided on how to quilt this one as I wanted to keep it gender neutral but once I got over the idea that "feathers are feminine" I just had fun with it!


Jenny's Urban Nine Patch Quilt Along is on week #8 but I knew if I didn't make all the blocks at once I might not get an opportunity to participate so I worked ahead  ;)


I SID around all the piecing and wanted the yellow rings to pop.  I did a mix of straight line quilting, CC's, feathers and fern feathers in the outer border.


I now have my favorite rock back from hiding under the snow all winter :)


Love how the back looks on this too.


It poured rain last night and has been above freezing all day so our ice is now covered in water. That is not open water.   Yes the quilt was soaking wet when I was done taking pictures...good thing it was my quilt :)


 I hope to get the binding on in the next couple of days.

  18. Absolutely gorgeous! Wow! You should be proud of yourself! It is almost too pretty to use....very nicely done. I can admire it, but the sewing would probably be too hard for me with the curves. C
