Oink A Doodle Moo – Deja Vu
It’s a case of Deja Vu here!
Back in May, I purchased some Oink A Doodle Moo fabric, by Jenn Ski for Moda. I made this baby boy quilt called Oink A Doodle Moo in Blue and it sat in my Etsy shop until August when it was sold.
This week the remainders of that fabric have been calling on me to play!
First I made this little doll quilt and pillow set.
I was long inspired by the hexagon log cabin by Tessa Marie of The Sewing Chick
and used her tutorial to guide me in creating just enough blocks to make this cute quilt.
This little doll quilt measures 15.75″ x 17.75″ and comes with a sweet little pillow.
The pillow was made using the white tone on tone used in the quilt and the pillow case
was my first attempt at french seams.
The backing is a cozy flannel with little yellow stars.
I quilted in the ditch and tied and buried all those little threads!
But I still had lots of Oink A Doodle Moo left over!
So I laid out some pieces on my design wall.
And added some bright scrappy bits to make these improv blocks with white strips.
I ended up with a quilt top that would finish at 25″ square. I wanted to make it larger – big enough for a baby quilt. And was determined to make mitered borders for the very first time!
And ended up spending the afternoon making a tutorial!
Please take a look at my new Mitered Border
quilt tutorial, included on my tutorial page,
which can be found just below my blog header.
Did you notice that there are STILL some scraps of Oink A Doodle Moo peeking out from behind that new finished top? Looks like this new baby boy quilt is going to have a twin brother!
Keep On Quilting On!
