It's a Hoot!

I have put aside the Kansas Dugout Quilt whilst I consider what fabric I will use for the missing side triangles ~ put aside, but definitely not out of mind or sight!  You know I usually like to finish a quilt before I start the next.

It's a Hoot by MoMo for Moda
..
But I am happy to make an exception this time; and thought it would be a good time to start working on a Custom Quilt order that came to fruition last week.


My customer's vision is very much a reflection of my own style of quilts and what's more the fabric of choice is It's a Hoot by MoMo for Moda, which so happens is already part of my stash (see Sunday Stash #78).


I spent yesterday cutting the fabric and playing around with the layout, and completed the quilt top late this afternoon.  This was the perfect easy piecing project to follow the Kansas Dugout Quilt from earlier this week with its bias edges and fiddly complicated seams.


I love how this quilt top has turned out!  The colors and printed designs from this single fabric collection all work so well together that no other fabrics were added. 


Aah! Simple and perfect.

  1. Rita there's something so pleasantly fun about pieced squares, it's a quilt in the most basic pattern, so nostalgic like that but the fabrics are absolutely amazing. It will sell in a split second.

  5. I've got a jelly roll of It's a Hoot that I've been struggling to work with for ages. I think the 2" strips are too small to show off the large designs in this collection. I love your layout. Simple always does the trick!

  22. Wow, what a pretty quilt and you pieced it so quickly--I bet it feels great! Those fabrics are so pretty and bright, who wouldn't love a quilt in those fabrics? Of course, now it's back to the Kansas Dugout Quilt! Happy stitching, Mary

  27. In a recent Lil' Twister class someone used It's a Hoot and I fell in love with it - now have 2 charm packs and clearly I need more! Thanks for sharing another of your wonderful quilts.

  28. This is one of those rare collections that thrown all together looks less like a collection and more like scrappy goodness. Perfect for this kind of simple quilt!
