I did it! In my "spare time" this week, I managed to cut out, piece, quilt and bind.....yes you read that right, I BOUND a quilt! It's nothing shy of a miracle.
Kathleen and I have been working through Modern One-Block Quilts, over the last year, re-making all of the quilts in the baby versions. It's been so much fun to see how different the quilts look from the original versions. So today I'm sharing another adorable quilt from Modern One-Block Quilts; Wiggling. We originally made this quilt using more earthy tones and blue sashing, I do love the original version, but have been dying to make it again using white! I love white!
When I came across this adorable At The Zoo, fat quarter bundle over at Fat Quarter Shop, I knew immediately that I had to use that fabric for my quilt. I love the variety of colors in this bundle, and the scale of the prints is just perfect for this quilt! (keep reading, Fat Quarter Shop is giving one of these beauties away)
After I got the quilt all pieced, I knew it had to be custom machine quilted, so I machine quilted some figure eights in the sashing and then a bud pattern in half of the blocks and a geometric spiral in the remaining blocks. I used Quilters Dream Wool as the batting, it's so yummy and soft!
Aren't those colors so gorgeous! Love it!
