Quilting the night away…

moda sugar pop disappearing 9 patch quilt

I have been quilting like a crazy woman and have finally used up all the Sugar Pop fabric that Moda sent me several months ago.  (Hey. I was a little sick for the first 3 months of my pregnancy, which started in November, so I’ve been a little behind. But that second trimester feel-goodness is kicking in, so…here come the projects.)

Anyway, what do you think???

I kind of wish I had not used the fabrics with blue in them, but I wanted to use it all. That fish scale looking print is a little overwhelming in this design I think. Totally cute on its own though, I should have saved it for something else fabulous.

I did a Disappearing 9 Patch, which I will post more about tomorrow. It’s soo easy, I think a very good first quilt pattern choice. I like the randomness.

And I LOVE the fabric. That Sugar Pop line is so fabulous!

Remember when I posted the beginnings of this coin quilt? These are the other colors in the Sugar Pop line, and I don’t know which I like better…they’re both so beautiful!

This one is off being quilted right now, and I can’t wait to get it back and share a photo. I know I’m going to love it.


Speaking of fabric I love…have you seen this? Moda’s new Central Park by Kate Spain. Oh my fabric lovin’ goodness, I want it all.

My next project is a tumbler quilt. I’m starting tonight!

I totally love the little bits of turquoise in that quilt – it looks awesome! I’ll have to show you the quilt I’m working on. Also I know a really great place to take your project to have the quilting done, mine just came back yesterday.

Oh good! I think I’ll have some blue in the binding which will maybe help tie everything together. What do you think???

Looks great! I also like the blue mixed in. The contrast of the blue makes the colors pop out. Congrats on the new bundle brewing!! Hope you are feeling better!

I love the quilt and I think the pops of blue look awesome! I’m going to take a look at the Disappearing 9 Patch design. I haven’t had a sewing machine in awhile. I ordered a spiffy new one because I so want to learn to quilt! Fed Ex just dropped it at my door this afternoon, can’t wait to get started!!
