Color Obsessed Urban Nine Patch Quilt Top

I've been obsessed about this color combo for quite some time and really struggled to find the perfect design for it, so I was excited when I finally thought of using the Urban Nine Patch for it!  I'm not sure is was the perfect choice but I'm really pleased with it anyway.


I can now move on and not be so fixated on this color obsession I've had.  I love moving on....now to my next color obsession ;o) !!

I'm glad so many are doing this QAL...because I personally don't feel that this quilt gives the design justice not like others quilts I've seen done up.  I still love it though!


I'm going to love it even more after I quilt it all up.  I really want to accentuate the secondary design with the quilting.

I did up 25 blocks, 5 across and 5 down.  I pieced like crazy Saturday night and through to yesterday and that's how I got it done!

I can't wait to see how you quilt it! It's gonna be awesome :) I forget how big the blocks are - how big is the quilt top?

Very fun colors! I agree, can't wait to see how you quilt it, I find that to be a difficult part of the project since it can really accentuate or detract from the top! Best of luck, and thanks for the awesome fast shipment, so excited to open it now!

Hey what's not to love about this quilt - personally I think it's amazing - I love how each of the nine patch blocks is framed by the thin black ring
I'm sure you will have a 'blast' quilting this as it will transform again into another stunning quilt - now waiting impatiently ;O)

You are a quilting machine! Wow! I love how it looks (I'm a sucker for those colors). Can't wait to see how you quilt it.

Mama Pea said...

I am curious as to why you aren't so happy with it. I really love the color combo and I love how it makes the design look. One of the things I love about this block is all the possibilities, depending on where you place your colors. You are amazing the way you can sew, sew, sew and get it done!
