Ups and Downs Quilt

Late Monday night I finished piecing the Ups and Downs quilt. L.O.V.E. this quilt!!

Ups and Downs Quilt


This is the biggest quilt I've made in awhile... 90" x 90"... 100 9-piece blocks

For sure this one is going to have to go out for quilting... no way I'm going to try to get all of that through my sewing machine... and I'd use my mom's long-arm, but I think she still has the shorter table/poles set up and this one won't fit.

But first I need to decide on a backing (leaning towards the fabric in the bottom of the picture.)

Backing Options for Ups and Downs Quilt


Pattern: Ups and Downs by Sarah Fielke published in Down Under Quilts
Fabric: From Little Things by Sarah Fielke and Moda Crossweave in Natural
