1974 Urban Chiks Quilt Top Finished

So, I've had this one on the pile for quite some time now.  It was all done except for the sewing on the borders, which I did last night.  This is one that I totally love.  I am sure that it is going to be the kind of quilt that dramatically improves once quilted, so I am looking forward to doing the quilting on it when I get the longarm.  I am thinking custom quilting is in order for this one!  I'm so glad that back when I started this quilt I had no idea how popular and loved a line 1974 would become otherwise I might have been reluctant to cut into it!

I have to say this is one of my favorite quilts of yours! What pattern is it? I only have a jelly roll so I probably won't be able to make it. It looks like a fq set or cake layer?

It is so pretty, and yes custom quilting would be perfect for it!
