urban neighbourhood quilt

Another quilt completed,   this is the first urban one I made but in my rush did not read the making up instructions properly,  the blocks should have been attached turning them alternately sideways    I think I prefer it this way.  The second one I made is done correctly a photo on my previous blog but will attach it here too so you can see the difference. Quilting is random and had to be close as I used a wadding that had to be quilted no wider than 4" apart,  the wadding I usually use is 10!"   suits me much better.




This year I have also decided to do the rainbow challenge,   this month the colour is purple,  I also am doing the crazy block a month so decided I would link them together,  the block is made but not done any cazy work on it yet.


I have been trying to organise my lap top pictures, gathering into one file all the projects I completed last year,  not sure if I have them all but here is a collage of what I did find.  There are only a few large quilts and unfortunately the biggest one has come out as one of the smallest on the collage!

That is an impressive number of finished quilts. Good show!
I also like the 'accidental' setting of your urband neighborhood quilt.

It's good to see you made a crazy block again. I'm looking forward to see the embroidery you're going to add.

Maria said...

Great finishes there Margaret! I agree with you about the first one...both quilts are lovely but I think the layout in the first has produced a stunning quilt. The collage of projects is impressive...you achieve so much! I look forward to seeing your crazy patchwork rainbow block each month...clever idea to combine the two!!!

Jillian said...

That is an amazing achievement in a year. Congratulations - and the collage is a great idea. I love the yellow in the urban quilt. I enjoy your crazy quilting and this one looks so enticing, just calling for some stitching!

Monica said...

I agree, I like the first one better, but maybe it is the colours more than the design. Anyway, congrats on the finish!

I love making the collages. It looks like a productive year, however they get sized! I like both of your quilt tops. With the color differences, it's hard to decide which setting is my favorite. Good for you for a January finish, though!

both versions of the quilt look good. Look forward to seeing your crazy patchwork block after you've worked your magic on it

Sarah said...

It looks like you were hanging from the ceiling to take that second photo Margaret! That is an impressive collage of finished projects, I am sure that 2017 will be equally as productive.

Anneliese said...

What an enormous number of quilts you finished last year - I am so impressed. And it is a good idea to make this collage for us to see but also for you to have them all together.

Wow, you were busy last year. I clicked on the photo and was able to see it larger and admire all your projects. I really like both of those settings - it's amazing how different they look with just a slight different placements. Love your RSC block.

You have now got a good selection of quilts, have you not thought of having your own stall at a craft fair I am sure that you would do very well!

That is a lot of Quilts ! They all look perfect Margaret.

Mary Ellen said...

The collage really shows how much you got done last year. If I weren't so lazy I would do something similar. All your quilting looks lovely.

Raewyn said...

The collage of your photos looks really good Margaret - how exciting to have all your completions together in one picture. Your two 9-patch quilts are beautiful - and interesting to see the different looks achieved by different fabrics. Your crazy scrap blocks will be a fun journey for you - you've made a good start!

Rebecca in AK said...

I like both versions! Congratulations on the finishes. From your collage you really got a lot accomplished in 2016!
