nest

another on my to-do list done! That leaves 2 'in progress' quilts, I am so close. I used the tutorial here to make this disappearing nine patch (except my starting squares were charm packs --5in square )

I used Tula Pink's Nest line of fabric (I love her!), and am happy with it. It's so bright and colorful! I had hoped it would be a little bigger (it measures 50in x 44in), but I ran out of charms...

I pieced the back with fabric from the same line.
***edited to add: I made 14 nine patches using 126 five inch squares******

Amy @ Park City Girl said...

Love this! Her fabric is so fun, and vibrant - some of my favorite too :) The disappearing 9 is a great use of all those charms!

Mal* said...

What an amazing combination of colors. I just love it!

Kat said...

Lovely! I'm a huge fan of this pattern. I used the same one to make the quilt for my bed. I did mine in blue and green Amy Butler fabrics.

Pamela said...

Julie said...

Ha, wonderful -- but then I would think so:

(Am still piecing the backing of mine.)

I wish I'd seen yours before I started to put mine together, because I sure like the touches of white all over yours. I used assorted fat quarters rather than the charm pack, and didn't have quite as many lights at my disposal -- they really move the eye around your quilt. Love it!

Aimee said...

Very cute! That pattern is fantastic!

Darci said...

I love her fabric! This quilt is so rich in color, it is great.

Smila said...

It is so beautiful! I just startet with patching and quilting... and one day I´ll make something as wonderful as this! (At least I hope so.)

sandra said...

Gorgeous colours!

Oh I just love that quilt, so bright and fun!

Laura said...

SO nice!!!!!

Nancy said...

Love the quilt. How many charms did it take to get that big of a quilt. I have two packs of Wee Play and this would be a cute pattern to use...

nettie said...

Hi Nancy,

I believe I used 3 charm packs, and then I added several 5 inch squares myself.

a wee play quilt like this would be so cute.

Oh so lovely lovely lovely!

Hannita said...

oh, oh, oh! i love it. i've got a nest charm pack and a cake(?) waiting to be made into a quilt. I'm thinking of framing the smaller charm pieces with white and then alternating them.

Nanci said...

So, in effect this is a reversible quilt?
It looks like that. I love it.
So colourful.

Rebecca said...

love it! just another reason why disappearing nine patch is number one on my list of patterns i've got to try!

Amy said...

I love this! How many original 9 patches did you use for this size quilt?

Lisa said...

love your colorful quilt! how many charm packs did you use to make it this size? It is adorable!

GARI said...

I really love your quilt. My DNPs have been three color quilts. How many charms did you use for this size of quilt?

nettie said...

if my calculations are correct, i made 14 nine patches with 126 five inch squares. (3 charm packs from moda, and 6 squares cut from my stash).

Bravos Grandkid said...

This quilt looks so awesome! I have a few nest charm packs that are waiting for a project... this might be it!! Love it. :)

Looks GREAT!! How very fun and bright. Love it. I just might have to try one. I have one to many in progress right now though. I need to do some finishing up!! heather

MichelleB said...

It looks great! Isn't that a great pattern for charm packs? I did same pattern with Tula Pink's Flutterby line, but I did add borders.

amandajean said...

nettie,

this quilt is so fantastic! i was just thinking, "what would this look like in wee play fabrics?" and then i read your comment. i have never tried the disappearing 9 patch yet, but it's now at the top of my list! :)

I love Tula Pink. This is such a cute quilt!

sara said...

I've been gaga over your blog (over my sister's shoulder) for a while now. It's GORGEOUS!! Your quilts have this 'freedom' look to them that I adore.

Simon - aka Bloke said...

Ky said...

I love this quilt. what's the pattern you used for it? I'd love to make one!!!!

Em said...

Hi Nettie -
This quilt is so bright and colourful!!! I picked up some charm packs of Nest a while ago and now inspired to use them soon!

Living on the Spit said...

Stumbled upon your blog and LOVE it!!!

Had to comment on this post when I saw your nest quilt...I used the ame fabric and the SAME pattern back in early February to make placemats!!

See above link...

How ironic is that? Great minds think a like!

Momoo said...

I love your disappearing 9 patch. My quilt club worked with the block before Christmas, but no one completed a quilt. Most of us just made table runners. It's neat to see a complete quilt with the pattern.

LeeBee said...

I am so in love with this quilt!! I was just wondering though, normally, I would wash and dry all my fabrics before starting a quilt, but I guess if you are using charm packs, you can't really do that. Maybe because they are all from the same line, they would all shrink at the same rate? Just curious?

nettie said...

hi leebee,

i would not wash and dry a charm pack, i actually never wash and dry my fabrics (personal preference), and haven't had a problem (knock on wood) with shrinkage or bleeding. good luck,
nettie

Conny said...

wow, a great quilt. and so colourful.

Blue Mountains, NSW said...

Your quilt is divine, and such a fantastic way to use charm packs. Thanks for the inspiration.

Jaclyn said...

Just found your blog and I love your quilts! I look forward to seeing what you come up with next...
