I just finished up a quilt that I am so excited about….Miss Molly.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been talking about the new books that we are featured in–75 Fun Fat Quarter Quilts from C&T Publications. We had told you that we didn’t need to initially make all of the quilts. We were to make one quilt and then offer variations. Well this quilt, Miss Molly is a variation. We love it.
The premise of the book is that the quilts can be made with fat quarters. I think we all have a few fat quarters around waiting for inspiration. Here we hit up our pink collection.
Isn’t it fun how the black inner squares of the pink blocks make an X?
This was a fast quilt. It’s not real big…I can’t remember maybe 60″ x 60″. It could easily be made larger by adding a pink border around the outside.
If you’re an 80’s child like I was, you might remember the movie Pretty in Pink with Molly Ringwald. Well the Miss Molly is named after her…Molly Ringwald.
For the quilting motif I tried something new from the book Step-by-Step Free-Motion Quilting: Turn 9 Simple Shapes into 80+ Distinctive Designs Best-selling author of First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting. It’s my favorite machine quilting book. I highly recommend it.
I think I echoed a little more than the original pattern in the book. I tried it out on the dry erase board before trying it on the quilt. I will for sure be using this motif again. It was easy and quick.
If you are interested in getting an autographed copy of the book featuring Miss Molly and the other great churn dash block quilts we designed find out more information about our sale and the book here.
While I was busy finishing this quilt up Kelli was busy sewing another quilt top from the book. Keep stopping by as I hope to have that one on the frame and finished soon.
