“Urban Beads”

“Urban Beads” is a quilt pattern by “Sew Kind of Wonderful” using their Quilt Curve Ruler tool for guiding the cutting and squaring up of blocks. My daughter had a stash of ‘Quilter’s Tweed” fabrics which I thought would make a great combination with this pattern. At my little quilting group meeting one week I finished sewing the blocks into columns and tried out a couple of arrangements:


I finally settled on the second arrangement and finished sewing the columns together that day:

A few months later with Christmas approaching, when I wanted to present the quilt as a gift, I completed the quilting and binding. Here the quilt is displayed on my daughter’s chaise lounge:

I did not have quite enough backing, but I did have extra pieces of the block fabric, so I combined the two plus a cat:

    The backing is a nice surprise. I love the quilting you chose. Suits the fabrics perfectly.
