Nine patch quilt top done

All the sashing is finally done and I love it! My largest quilt top so far, it drags on the ground in my photo spot.



I think I'll try pebble quilting on this as a nice contrast to all those squares, unless I regain my sanity before I start on such a huge piece! For now it will have to wait with my picnic blanket (finally quilted but not bound yet) as I finish up my swap candy corn.

Looks wonderful! Your colors are great, and I just love the way the white sashing brings it all together.

Good lord, you're going to pebble-quilt that thing? I feel faint on your behalf. :-)

Woohoo, go you! Large quilts always have "that seam"... the last seam... the big seam... with the full weight of the top hanging off of your machine. I HATE That Seam! But it's so worth it to have the top finished.

It looks awesome. Pebble quilting would look amazing on it but it is a ton of work and hard on the eyes. I can only do a bit at a time.

Beautiful Angela! Love your blog, I check it daily. Now, umm I think I still have only about 15 or so blocks done. They are larger though, 3" squares. I might make a smaller quilt as I've never made one bigger than a cot size :-)

I think it looks great! The white sashing really makes the colors in the blocks stand out. Is pebble quilting similar to stippling?
