Charity Quilt Finish: Simply Woven

Blog readers often send me quilt tops.   I machine quilt the tops and bind them.  Then the finished quilts are sent off to a worthy charity.  This is one of those….

When my birthday quilt blocks were coming in, a few quilt tops were sent my way too.  This one was from Elley.  I try really hard to do the quilt tops in order of how they were sent to me-or in close depending on need and whether I have a backing or not.  This one I sent right to the top of the list because a backing and a binding was sent too.  I didn’t want the components to get lost so as soon as there was an opening on the quilt frame, I put it on.

Isn’t the quilt wonderful?!?!

When Kelli saw it she said..”Hey that’s a Moda Bake Shop pattern”….and we think it is.  Here’s a link to what we believe is the pattern.  (It’s a free pattern so you might want to check it out) We loved it when we saw it back then and  love it even more now that we see it in person all completely scrappy.

It was really fun to work on…
I used white thread on top with a blue thread for the backing.  This is an edge to edge swirl type loop that’s become a favorite.

My favorite thing about this quilt is that is uses EVERYTHING!!  There are plaids by 30’s prints…Modern fabrics by calicos.  There are batiks…florals.  There is a perfect messy mix that comes together to make a STUNNING quilt!

When I was trying to pick thread for the backing I had a bit of trouble as the color is just a bit “off”…not blue, not teal, not turquoise.  Kelli and decided to call it periwinkle.  It made a great backing for an eclectic quilt.

I gotta say, Ruby looks great there showing it off too!

Thanks so much Elley for the great quilt top.  I don’t have a home for it yet…but I am sure something will come up and it will be perfect.

P.S.  I really want to make one of these quilt tops…LOTS!!

Today we’re sharing our finished quilt at  Confessions of a Fabric AddictCrazy Mom Quilts, and Link a Finish Friday.

    Love the quilt! I’m going to download the pattern, that is so neat! Thank you for quilting these charity quilts. I try to make charity quilts too, but I don’t get near the number finished that you do. Blessings, Gretchen

    Thanks for posting this with the total scrappiness. I’ve seen this pattern with a coordinated fabric collection, but I like it better scrappy. Now I’m gonna do it!

    I printed the pattern as soon as I finished reading the blog. I don’t know if I will get to working on it right away, but at least I can sort out some scraps for it. I will download it to my iPad so I can see it in color. The scrappiness of it makes it look so complicated, but after reading the directions it seems pretty straightforward. Thanks for posting the pattern for this one. I passed it on to my sister, so she will have something to work on.

    Yep, it’s simply woven and a great stashbuster! So happy to see it quilted and finding a home. Thank you! Hope everything goes smoothly for you this month, and that your surgery goes well.
