Urban Nine Patch QAL ~ Week #9 (giveaway)

Wow, this week flew by!  Kids had spring break...need I say more.  I did manage to get some much needed longarm quilting done and that felt good....BUT I didn't manage to get an Urban Nine Patch or Urban Deco block done this week.  I'll have to double of next week and sometimes it's easier that way.  

Remember when I did this block:


I was wanting to change up these blocks and add another color combo: 


Well...the block with the turquoise has been sitting on my design wall next to the red one's for two weeks now and every time I look at it I just know it doesn't go with the red ones (not at all).  I keep hoping one day I'll look at it and go, Oh yes...It looks so good together, but sadly that has not happened.  

So I'm going to give it away!  Not quilted, just the block.  Maybe it could be a good start for someone wanting to do the Urban Deco blocks or maybe that someone just likes it....it's even got some FMF in it!

So...no new Urban Nine Patch block from me today.  But I would love to give this Urban Deco block away!


So if you like this block and think you could do something with it or just want it because it could be yours for free,  leave a comment telling me so!

and that's it!! 

Be sure to check out the Urban Nine Patch Flikr Group this week, there are some great blocks going up on it, thanks to everyone participating!


Update:  I forgot to add, I'll announce the winner Monday morning and you must...must...go check out Jessica's Quick Curve Ruler's Design Challenge today!  She did something so cool with it and I'm sure she would love to know what you think!

Goodness, only 3 comments so far - I bet that goes up soon.
It would make a fantastic cushion cover / pillow cover.
Getting nearer, and nearer to having the decks cleared so I can play with my ruler and block up the sketch design I doodled

Oh yes please!! I would love a little Jenny magic over here - I would make it into a cushion or even see it as reason to jump into the QAL. Love your blocks!

Josie McRazie said...

I think it would make a lovely throw! (and I know just who I would give it to!!) Hello little block! Find your way to IL please!! I have a daughter who would love you very much!! :)

It would make a wonderful gadget holder. One of the ladies at my class last week had one made form an orphaned block and I'm anxious to make one. This block would be perfect.

It's gorgeous! I'd like to be in the drawing!!

Swedish Scrapper said...

Ooooo, I know what you mean when something doesn't match no matter how much you want it to---generous of you to let one of us find a good home for it. I think I would sash and bind it and hang it up as inspiration. I think it is a beautiful Swoon block all on it own!
Lovely quick curve designs! The pillow's colors are perfectly composed.

jojo said...

I would love to win the block... and it will play a staring roll in a new quilt that will be made in honor of it.

I see a pillow in my future! :)

Sharon said...

Ooo - I LOVE this block! I've been collecting fabric in these colors to make something special and this would be a wonderful center to start off! I actually saw this block a week or so ago and fell in love with it right away! Then found you today again after seeing the Designer Challenge. I've never worked with curves adn I'm working up my courage to now. Thanks for the encouragement.

Tricia C. said...

This block is wonderful. I'm not much of a piecer so I'm entranced by the type of piecing that you do. If this was mine I'd make it into a mini quilt to hang on the wall, that way I could admire it all the time. Thanks so much for sharing your work with us!

Shirley said...

I certainly don't deserve to win, but I would be ever so happy if I did! This block would be so cool on the wall in my old farmhouse kitchen.......with a little hand quilting. Love the fabric and the design.

Fiesta said...

Your block is beautiful and would make a fabulous center block for a table topper. I would love to try yo make a block like this. I am basically an appliquier. Is this block hard to make?
