Urban Abacus

Today I'm sharing with you my "Urban Abacus" quilt for the Bloggers' Quilt Festival.  This quilt is my own design and I've had it done for some time now.  I will have a pattern for it soon, along with a ruler I've designed called the "Quick Curve Ruler".  This is one of many designs I have that will coincide with my ruler and I'm excited to share this quilt with you today!







My idea for this quilt was to show case the black and white fabrics.  I think sometimes black and white fabric get's lost in so many quilts and you don't get to enjoy the print.  I love black and white with aqua blue!  

The quilting was also done by me.  I'm a professional longarm quilter and love what I do!  I especially love...love...to quilt on my own quilts when I get a chance!

I've enjoyed looking through all the quilts for the show and love how we can all share our quilts with each other!  Thanks so much for making this happen Amy!  I look forward to it!

I really like the curved look to your quilts. I think your ruler will be a hit with these as examples. Color and quilting are also wonderful. Kathie L in Allentown

It's beautiful, Jenny! The blue frames the black and white prints perfectly and makes them pop. Lovely :)

I love how the black and whites are so graphic against the aqua. Like you said, it showcases the print really nicely.

This is a gorgeous quilt. I love the design to show off the black and white prints. I think it looks wonderful with the aqua. Your quilting is stunning too.

This is really amazing - I can visualise a display of rows of Pandora bracelets with patterned beads instead of an abacus - and I love how you quilted it - how many more patterns have you got using your ruler? I see various formats and colours - horizontal and vertical rows, even to possibility of a circular one

Kiera said...

Amazing! The color choices are so fresh and the quilting is stunning as ususal!

*LOVE* that back!!! A perfectly reversible quilt. And it succeeded nicely at showcasing those B&W prints. :) Yeah, I'll be buying the ruler and all. ;D
