Reader’s Version: “Oink a Doodle Moo”

I got a nice letter from a blog reader…she writes:

Hi Jo,

I just want you to know how much I enjoy your blog. I follow you on facebook and keep updated on your blog posts. I found you when you posted the Oink-a-doodle-moo quilt patterns on Moda Bake Shop. At the time I had two grandchildren with the 3rd on the way.  The patterns were perfect for them. I made the 3 quilts for them for Christmas 2013. I loved that I could make 3 quilts from a panel and a jelly roll.

Here are my three quilts. Thank you for the fun patterns! I really enjoyed making them with the fun fabrics.

Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through your medical problems. You are a strong lady and you will win!

Thanks again!

Linda

I almost hate to show her quilts.  They are so cute and in the end, I just know what’s going to happen….Someone is going to want to make the quilts and the fabric in no longer available.  But look, aren’t they cute??

Oink-a-doodle-1
Kelli and I designed these using a panel and a jelly roll along with extra yardage.  It was so fun.  With us being farm girls it was a “no brain-er” that when we saw the fabric that we’d HAVE to design something with it.

…and if you’re a regular blog reader, you know we typically don’t do anything small…so went big with small projects.  THREE baby quilts!

Oink-a-doodle-2
We loved making them.

Oink-a-doodle-3

Ours have all been gifted away….

If you’re looking for the pattern you can find it here.  The pattern would likely work with a different panel design just know that this fabric line is no longer available.

Thanks so much for sharing your work with us Linda.  We love seeing it!  If you’d like to know more about Linda check out her blog here.

    I think I saw the farm fabric in the first quilt not too long ago. I did a search for farm animals or farm fabric…something like that…and it was among those that popped up. I have no idea the name of the site….not so helpful, but searching might turn it up if someone really wants it.

    Just finished these quilts. I did them with a mixture of nautical theme fabrics instead. I had to fudge the first one a bit because my panel was rectangular but it turned out cute. I also put the bear claw star in the middle of third block instead of just squares. I didn’t quite understand how to do the hst using the 3.5 cut rectangle so I probably ended up with a lot of waste. ‍♀️ It’s been a long time since I really quilted so I’m ok with some small and big mistakes. I also used two jelly rolls instead of one. Should have known better. I had enough scraps to end up making three more baby blankets! I’m finally done looking at the nautical fabric. I was starting to get tired of it. Thank you so much for sharing your patterns. I really enjoyed quilting with you.
