Pieces Into Parts

I hope everyone had a great weekend! It was 91 degrees F yesterday, so it really feels like summer. Yesterday, I also found out that my Storybook Quilt made it into the top nominated FAVORITE BED QUILTS for the Spring 2012 Bloggers' Quilt Festival.

I would LOVE (if you haven't already voted) to vote for my quilt. There are several categories (with some absolutely fabulous quilts), mine is in the FAVORITE BED QUILTS. Click HERE to vote.

Since this was a long weekend for me, I decided that I really needed to get going on my Urban Nine Patch that I started way back in January or February. So this weekend I cut pieces and turned them into parts. I know really exciting stuff!

I still have to trim the parts and sew them into the blocks, then sew the blocks into a quilt top. I am quite pleased with the design and colors. This was made with Jenny at Sew Kind of Wonderful's Quick Curve Ruler (which in some kind of wonderful) and her Urban Nine Patch pattern. I can't wait to get this together so I can quilt it (my favorite part of quilting).

Today I'm linking up with A Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday!
