Brighten Up – Quilt #40

Totally forgot to put anything on my latest quilt here. The pattern is Moda Bake Shop Interwoven by Material Girl Quilts.  I was looking for something quick and easy and stumbled on Interwoven in my Pinterest holdings.  Isn’t it amazing how many places and how many ideas we have stored for future projects.

Didn’t need to buy anything for this quilt, just needed to get busy.  Did I read the pattern all the way through first.  No.

Pattern calls for trimming the print charms to 5″ x 4 1/2″, then halving them to 4 1/2″ x 2 1/2″.  After I started doing this, I thought I should have just left them at 5″.  It would have been a bigger quilt.  But I kept going and here are the finished pieces.  They are pretty cute!  I love Me & My Sisters fabrics, having used many of them in the past, here are their links  Rainy Days  Grow Dot Dot Dash More Dot Dot Dash I think I like their collections so much, because it is the first real collection I bought.

Here is the completed top.

Remember earlier when I said I should have just left the charms at 5″,  not trimming them to 4.5″.  If  you follow the pattern, which I did, you can use a 44″ fabric for the backing.  Great move.  So now it was time to get some quilting done.

Anyone who has checked out any of my quilts before is saying now “how is she going to edge to edge straight line quilt this one”.  Surprise I’m not doing straight line.  Still doing edge to edge and using my walking foot but using a wavy line.  I don’t know if this qualifies for stepping out side of my comfort box, maybe just stepping on the line with my toes over the edge.

I think the wavy lines are adorable and add a little more cush!

What do you think, do the waving lines take me out of my comfort box or just on the edge?

Linking up with some of my friends this Friday.

    That is adorable – such pretty fabric! I thought like you, why would you trim those charms like that, but it sounds like the pattern writer had a vey good reason for it! I like that wavy line quilting – wish my sewing machine had that stitch.

    I do love this quilt and the wavy line stitch which I have on new sewing machine. Great inspiration, I think I might have to make a quilt like this using some scraps from the baby quilts I’ve made. Thanks for sharing!

    Being able to back a quilt with a single, un-pieced fabric is so delightful, although I can also understand going back and making this with the larger size sometime in the future, too. It’s lovely and the wavy line quilting with your walking foot is definitely toeing the line (it’s how I started getting brave enough to think about jumping into the FMQing deep end)!

    Very nice quilting! I’m trying this, too, since I’m still a walking foot quilter but I have a curvy stitch on the machine. We’re making progress!

    A very pretty soft fun quilt. I love their fabrics also! I’d say the quilting is perfect for this quilt.

    Jan, this looks great and yes sometimes not having to piece the back is blessing. I use the wavy line quilting as you may see on a blog entry coming up soon.

    I don’t know if it’s outside your comfort zone, but I DO know that it’s so stinking cute!! Love the pattern, the prints, and the quilting. It all works together to make a great quilt!

    I love that quilt, and yes, Me & My Sisters fabrics are great! Your wavy lines are perfect. Not so sure it’s out of your comfort zone or toes over the line, but, hey, it works!

    Very nice choice of fabrics! The wavy lines are just right because they add a bit of movement and it looks great!

    So pretty!!! This simple pattern really shows of the colors and is very pleasing to the eye. Love everything about this quilt.
    This is similar to the Moda Bricks pattern. I have made two quilts using this pattern.
    Walking Foot Quilting is my refuge – always.
