Block Nine

Well, I'm finally finished quilting my Layers quilt blocks. I've even gotten them trimmed and I'm ready to start assemble using the wide strip method of QAYG. I think the blocks turned out pretty cool. Now the question is, will that coolness continue as I put it all together?
Block # 9 - Last one


The back of Block # 9

All nine blocks quilted with miles of Aurifil 50wt thread and  trimmed to 20" x 20" I'm planning about a 3 inch sashing
Well, how fast can I get this quilt together? Cross your fingers and wish me some speed (the wedding is Saturday).

Color Me Quilty!



  1. Looking amazing. I can hardly wait to see it finished!

  2. It's been a treat reading your blog & watching your FMQ skills develop.
    You've come a long way in a short time.
    This is gorgeous!

  3. This is so exciting! I cannot wait to see it finished. The journey while you have been sharing this quilt has been fun! You are so talented!!!

  4. The quilting on these 9 blocks is just amazing, very inspiring! Looking forward to seeing the final top :D

  5. WOW! These are definitely stunning! You have done an awesome job quilting them!

  6. Gorgeous blocks Pat - good luck getting them together in time. It's going to be completely amazing!

  7. One reader mentions you've come a long way since beginning your FMQ. When did you begin? I haven't tried it yet, so your time frame will give me hope and encouragement. Your blocks are wonderful. When I first saw them I thought of lava coming out of the Earth, and to learn that it is strata, just shows you've done an excellent job. All the different quilting stitches, in all those great earthy colors are amazing. You have done a fantastic job. I just don't know how you'll be able to give it away to your daughter, :)! Thanks for giving us all encouragement.
