This is Sandra’s Urban Nine Patch quilt and you can find the pattern designed by Jenny Pedigo here. It is made using the Quick Curve Ruler and if you have followed my blog for awhile you know I love this ruler and have made quite a few quilts with it including this pattern. Sandra asked that I quilt it exactly like Jenny did on her pattern as that is what drew her to this pattern and to purchasing the ruler. So here is a link to Jenny’s post where she shows how she quilted it as that is exactly what I did. The only difference is that Sandra added a 3” outer border so I just extended and recreated the designs with the quilting to pretended it didn’t have a border.
When I started quilting this one I was a bit overwhelmed by all the ruler work as I don’t usually quilt this heavily and was thinking Jenny was a bit crazy! ;) But as I kept going and saw the results it made me want to work on it more and more as I loved how it was turning out! I always had an appreciation for quilters that can do such detailed work but now I have an every better appreciation for the work they do as this took me three full days to complete.
Sandra asked me to dye her a backing and we decided on yellow. I used Aqua So Fine thread on top and a light Aqua Bottom Line on the back. The batting is Quilter’s Dream Blend.
Love how the quilting looks on the back!
Those little petals in the nine patch were a lot of fun to do! Thanks for the inspiration Jenny!
