Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival FALL 2013

If you visit my blog regularly, this will be a repeat; but I wanted to enter my Oink A Doodle Moo quilt in Amy's Quilt Festival and that required a new post.

A special little girl I know is going to be a big sister soon. This is the baby/toddler size quilt I made her. She lives next door to her grandma who has horses, pigs and goats (not sure if she has cows). I purchased Moda's, Oink A Doodle Moo panel in red and then used my own fabric scraps for the rest of the quilt top.

After I received the panel in the mail, I decided I did not like the red chicken wire print around the panels. It looked too boyish, so I cut off the red and added thin pink borders and wider white borders.....
I cut my scrap pieces at 5" in length and varying widths. The white strips are 3 inches wide. The finished quilt is 45" squared.

I used straight line quilting for this project. For the 45" width, that came to 150 straight lines. I used the edge of the walking foot as my guide.

For the backing I used Riley Blake's, Hello Sunshine Birds in red. I thought it was the perfect choice for the backing to go along with the animals on the front and match all the colors of the scraps. It also looks like a paisley print from a distance.



I love the straight line quilting...........look at all those rows!
For the binding, I used Riley Blake's, Hello Sunshine stripe in multi color.

  5. I love it!!! I had the same panel and cut them apart to make tag along quilts, with ribbons on all sides. I think I will have to get another panel and make a quilt like your's:)

  6. I loved Oink A Doodle Moo! I made a toddler quilt from a layer cake of the collection. So much fun! I love how you used it. This is a very happy quilt, and the backing fabric is perfect. I've never seen it before, but will keep an eye out now :)
