I used two layers of bamboo batting on this quilt, just to give the quilting a bit more definition. It's a baby quilt too, so I figure it will be a great floor quilt with the extra padding. Because it's quite small (45" x 50") it wasn't too difficult to maneuver with the extra layer of batting, but I definitely wouldn't be keen to try it on anything bigger. I quilted it quite simply, with FMQed straight lines in the grey sections, and ditch stitching through the coloured hexagons. I quilted the white areas with pebbles, just for a texture difference and because they are so puffy :o)
Even more exciting, you can find the tutorial over at Moda Bake Shop today (thanks to Katy for letting me know it was up!!) :o)
How exciting Jess - congratulations :-) It is a gorgeous quilt. Great boy colours!
That's a fantastic design!
Congrats, I might even use my one and only jelly roll to try it!
This looks great! The pattern really gives a nice 3- dimensional look to it.
Congrats! It's a lovely pattern! (plus, I'm always on the hunt for a new baby quilt pattern...folks just keep having them!)
Its a lovely quilt, I have been playing with those fabrics lately and the colours work so nicely for your quilt. Congrats on being in the bake shop.
That's a great quilt!
Adorable! Congrats on making it into moda bake shop!!
This is really beautiful, love the colors.
Oh that is beautiful!! Definitely adding that pattern to my list. Congratulations!
Cute!! I saw a picture of this somewhere today (FB?) and didn't know it was yours! Congrats!!
Whoa! That quilt is so fun. :D
I really like the way you have set this design. Some full hexagons and some partial. Lovely
Lovely quilt! I am glad you mentioned about doubling up the batting - I have been thinking about doing that for a baby quilt I am working on but I have never tried it before.
it's gorgeous! Congratulations on the feature :-D
Lovely - well done - spotted you over at The 'Shop' xxx
Love it and the colors are so fantastic!!
Really cute Jess! I love the feel of a double batting but like you couldn't imagine doing it on a large project, which is kind of a shame! If there's one thing that sort of annoys me about batting, it's that it's so thin!
This looks FAB, Jess! I saw it on Pinterest before I got caught up reading your blog today. Wonderful!
Jess, that's wonderful
I printed off your pattern from Moda but I only have fat quarters to work with. I think this will work. Any suggestions? You can reach me at email@example.com.
I am making a version of this now. Very colourful it will be given to charity when finished.
