Urban Baby

My Urban Baby quilt is finished!

I'm in love with this one! I may need to make a larger version for myself.

I really wasn't sure how to quilt this and did not end up doing any of the designs I had planned. They just weren't speaking to me so I simply started on one part, the print parts. The ideas for the rest came to me as I was working.

The back:

I used up almost all of the Dazzle line of prints I had for this one. I'll have to use different fabrics if I make another one. The finished size is 42" by 52". I quilted it with Signature Cotton 40 wt. Pink thread.

The pattern is an adaptation of the free runner pattern that comes with the Quick Curve Ruler.

One more picture of the front. I just enjoy looking at it.

Love your quilt. The back is as pretty as the front. Really like the way you quilted it. Don't you love it when quilts speak to you!

I love how it turned out, too. The color is great, the fabrics are great, and the quilting is just right. I like how it doesn't have borders, either. Very striking. Well done!
