Wonky Pods (Blogger's Quilt Festival)
My entry in the Modern Quilts category for the Blogger's Quilt Festival is Wonky Pods. I made this quilt for my youngest daughter, who has recently moved to a big girl bed. This quilt was the first time I had free-motion quilted a bed size quilt, and I absolutely love the texture of the all-over meandering - I will definitely do this style of quilting again.
You can read more about this quilt here. This quilt was mostly inspired by Elizabeth Hartman's work.
Finished Size: 56" x 85"
Pattern: Wonky Pods - the pattern will soon be available in my Craftsy store
Fabric: a "curated" charm pack from my stash, Moda Bella Azalea for the pod borders, Moda Bella Ivory for the background.
Backing: vintage sheet (100% cotton) from my collection
Binding: Michael Miller Ta Dot
Pieced and Quilted: By me, on my domestic sewing machine- my first time FMQ meandering!
Thank you Amy for hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival, there are so many inspiring quilts!
