big nines-a completed quilt top

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

I'm not completely sure, but I think the month of May just might be the end of me. Man, it's been busy! If I've been sewing, it's mostly been something that I can't show yet. So, for sanity sake, I whipped up this little quilt top. I needed to see something completed, and quick like! Something bigger than a pincushion. Hahaha!
I used 10 different solid fabrics from my stash in this quilt. The white blocks are Kona cotton (Snow) and the solids are from a variety of different manufacturers, but mostly Kona.
The blocks finish at 16", so the quilt should finish at about 48" square. I'm excited because I already have a plan for quilting and binding. Figuring out a backing shouldn't be too hard.
You can find the block tutorial here, if you care to make one of your own! I think this would be super cute done up in subtle prints, too.

That's it for me today! Now, it's your turn. Please link up your finishes, and thank you, as always, for joining me for finish it up Friday!

Oh my. The things you whip up in a minute would take me weeks and months... I love your big nines!

Such a simple quilt with big impact; love your color choices. And you're right, the backing shouldn't be hard to pick.

This turned out fantastic! I love the simplicity of the design! Very cool quilt!

It would be so fun to make this an a variation of "dice" numbers. I think with the 9 patch you can get 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 pretty easily. Sometimes a fast make is just what is needed. :)

I am constantly amazed at how quickly a quilt top can come together.

Oh I love this - it would be fabulous in batik prints too - hmm, must go survey stash!

Cara said...

I love the visual simplicity of this. It is bright and cheery, but still restful because of that simplicity.

Sometimes you just need easy with big impact! Great job!

Sarah Craig said...

So cute! And I have a pile of shot cotton FQs that might be perfect for this! I'm off to look at your tutorial...

Beautiful quilt Amanda-Jean but don't stop there, make it bigger.

Solids have my heart.... So this cute quilt top really appeals to me! Love the simplicity of the small nine patches in the large blocks. This is a lovely piece!

I'm looking forward to seeing what you choose for the backing/quilting/binding.

When I saw your post about this pattern the other day I wondered about trying it with fussy cut picture squares to replace the white ones. I might give it a go I think.

I love the simplicity of this quilt. x

I don't have any finishes to link up....none that I can show, yet, anyway. I'm certainly loving this quilt, though, and can't wait to see how gorgeous it becomes all quilted up! ~karen

I love your quilt top! And thank you so much for the tutorial. I think I'm going to use it to do a bit of stash busting ...it's time to clean out and this would be a great way to make some quick and easy, but still interesting, donation quilts.

Love this quilt. It looks like buttons. Love the fabrics too.

Patti said...

Hurry, hurry! I love this idea and I'm excited to see how you've decided to quilt it! Too cute!

I would never be able to make that as fast as you but I can so appreciate the need for a FO when everything's in process.

Thank you for running your link up! Just managed to join in this week! Phew!
"Big Nines" is such a great idea, although i haven't been one for solid colours ..... until now! I bought some solids for a printing project recently, must see if I have enough to make one.
Thank you for running your recent blog hop ..... I was lucky to win an electronic copy of your book, and I 'm looking forward to getting time to sit, and take in some ideas from you.
Thank you!
