Urban Nine Patch Quilt

Stephanie's Urban Nine Patch quilt is all done!!  A lot quilting on this little beauty!


I love the overall feel of how this quilt turned out!


I tried to keep the quilting more on the feminine side....some frills, flowers and lace edges did the trick.


Stephanie used a linen for the background fabric.  The quilting around the blocks sort of remind me of a knitted blanket.


I used Sew Fine for the thread and switched thread color for each block, matching the block the best I could....for instance, for the gray and aqua block above, I used and aqua colored thread both in the aqua and gray fabric.  For all the white and linen I used an off white thread.  


I used double batting (warm and white).


There is a pattern available for this quilt here.  Stephanie did up her blocks on point which is different than the pattern layout.  Basically you would need to follow the instruction on how to assemble a block than put them on point and configure the background fabric yourself. 

Stephanie has waited a LONG time for this quilt and I'm so happy to have it done for her!

It looks fantastic! I especially love how you put that little flower in the center of each 9 patch. And switching thread color for every fabric? WOW. Great job!

Breath-taking as always! When I grow up, I'm going to quilt like you! Awesome!

I know Stephanie and she will be thrilled with how you quilted it!

I really like how you quilted the lines in the background fabric along the edges. Then filled in between some of the lines with "vine swirls" (not sure what to call it). I need to file this idea away for myself.

Gosh the double batting really shows off the texture. As usual, lovely quilting & design.

Beautiful, I love the colours she chose, and as ever the quilting is gorgeous. I have this pattern and hope to have a go at a test block when I go on quilt retreat.

I watched Stephanie make some of these blocks in person at a quilting retreat in Minnesota and just fell in love. Of course solids are my favorites. The quilting DOES look like a knitted sweater--just beautiful!
