Hey all…
Remember the pile of It’s a Hoot Fabric scraps I was working on….Well it turned into a Moda Bake Shop feature!  Here it is….

Hoot-Gracie

To get a better look at it, head on over to Moda Bakeshop and please leave a comment to tell me what you think.

Here’s the quilt in an older Moda fabric line, Basket of Flowers….

Quilt-1

Taking pictures of a quilt isn’t the easiest….We live in an old farm house.  The rooms of the house are small and now that it’s winter it’s hard to get a decent photo.  The second I lay a quilt out to take pictures, our dog Gracie is all over the quilt wanting to get her picture taken.  I am sure it has something to do with the treat that she gets once the photo shoot is over….  She tries hard but sometimes she looks crabby…and the green eye thing isn’t really attractive.

Bloopers-4

Sometimes she barks just as I snap the picture….

I was ready to give up trying to take a photo so I sent my daughter Kalissa over to the neighbors house to take photos.  They have a beautiful new house that is very spacious….here’s some of the photos she came home with….

Bloopers-2

It’s a super cute photo of the neighbor girl but you can’t see much of the quilt.  Then there’s this photo…

Bloopers-3

Yep…that’s my daughter fooling around instead of taking pictures.

So after about 50 photos, we finally came up with a couple keepers.  Here’s one with the Basket of Flowers fabric line….

Quilt-2

to see the photos of the It’s a Hoot fabric line, you’ll have to go over to Moda Bake Shop.  The quilt was super quick.  Honestly you can get the top together in a day….it finishes at 48.5 inches square.  I’ve been playing with the scraps that are left over….I really like this fabric line.

    I loved your “recipe” at the Bakeshop so I had to stop by your blog! I’ve been planning to try a star quilt next, so this will be the perfect project. I liked your fabric choice too.

    I have that same issue with winter and small houses, so I had my kids take a quilt outside to take pictures of it the other day because I was hoping for a better backdrop. They came back with mostly silly shots. :-) http://sagebrushandhollyhocks.blogspot.com/2010/11/remember-quilt-i-mentioned-awhile-back.html
