This quilt was made together with my work colleagues for our manager who had a baby girl earlier last year. I started with two charm packs of It's a Hoot by Momo (Moda), added in some strips of grey Sherbet Pips, adapted my Easy Going Modern pattern (I'm totally a one-hit wonder, folks!) and we went to town. I brought in my sewing machine one day and set it up in our meeting room, and gave everyone the rundown of what they'd be doing.
First up, fabric selection.
Then came piecing. Most of my colleagues had never used a sewing machine before, but they did so well!
They arranged their blocks on the design wall.
Then I took everything home and put on a few finishing touches.
Quilting was two sizes of loopy loops - it's quickly become one of my favourite go-to motifs for a quick finish - and bound with a nice check cut on the bias.
The back was built around a large piece of the deer print (LOVE), and used up a bunch of my scraps/stash fabrics. It's hard to tell in the photo, but we all signed a strip of Kona Snow and I pieced it into the back.
Our manager loved it, as did her sweet girl. This was a 2013 FAL finish which I have already linked. Are you going to join in for 2014? Do it! It's fun! I finished a few long-standing WIPs this year because of it.
