x and + quilt

I'm back.  I have spent the last couple weeks recovering the flu, helping my family recover from the flu, and celebrating my birthday, so I'm sorry I have been neglecting the blog!  I do have a quilt to share and it is one that I LOVED working on.

Last year I started making a few of these blocks with some It's a Hoot charm packs and some Just Wing it scraps.  I abandoned the blocks because I knew I didn't have enough fabrics to finish the quilt.  I am so glad I waited.  A few weeks ago I snatched up an Oh Deer! layer cake on sale and I knew that I had to pick up those old blocks and finish up the quilt using three Momo collections.

I just love Momo's fabrics.  They are so beautiful and bright and vibrant and I love seeing these three collections together.

I had some more Moda Snuggles sitting around and it seemed like a perfect backing for this quilt.

I quilted it with straight-ish lines about a half inch apart diagonally across the quilt.

I wanted to use something sweet and subtle for the binding, so I went with a pink Lecien dot I have had in my stash for a while.

Since my husband and kids think that I have way too many quilts sitting around the house, I am going to list this one in my etsy shop.  However if no one buys it, I certainly wouldn't be sad to keep it :)

Finished size: 68 x 53"

  7. The quilt looks lovely. i love bright colours! The quilting is sensational. Doesn't it look great on minky? It must have taken you a long time to do all that straight line quilting. I've listed some "surplus to requirement" quilts on my facebook page before. No one bought them, so oh dear, they have to stay with me :)
