Urban Decay Quilt

It is the Quiltdad trifecta! I have a yet another quilt that I quilted for John (Quiltdad). He blogged about it yesterday, so I decided to share my pictures today. Here’s the quilt, Urban Decay:

This quilt is so manly, it made the cover of the book.

When I was deciding how to quilt this quilt, I wanted to emphasize the deconstructed nature of the quilt pattern. So in the “complete”  blocks, I quilted a design that was very structured and geometric. However in the “broken” blocks I used a variation of one of the quilting designs in my book.

In the sashing, I went with the same geometric theme.

I think I may have to do a tutorial on this design sometime. It’s actually quite easy, not near as complicated as it looks!

This book is available here and features 8 quilt patterns for that special guy in your life. I just so happen to have a stack of curious nature in my quilting room, I may have to whip it out and make an Urban Decay quilt for myself, after market of course!!


Happy Quilting!
