It's a Hoot II ~ A Finished Quilt


I set aside some time on the weekend to finish the It's A Hoot II custom quilt by finishing the cross-hatch quilting and then by adding the solid red binding.  It is very similar to the first It's a Hoot Quilt, although it is smaller in size, and I have used Robert Kaufman Kona Solid in Ash for backing fabric.


I love, love the look of the quilting grid, and I wish you could reach through and touch it, squish it.  I think there's going to be one happy baby, toddler,  child ...


I packaged up the quilt today and it should soon be winging it's way across the Pacific.  I also bundled up my leftover It's a Hoot scraps for the time being and sorted through my fabrics stash as I pondered the What's next? question.

Only time will tell.

  1. Your quilting looks so neat! No distortion at all! I don't get such results (even with walking foot and basting spray).
    I love "It's a hoot" to.

  7. Love it! I actually ordered a whole set of It's a Hoot pre-cuts but the post office delivered a damaged empty envelope. I was so sad!

  8. Really cute quilt. This is such a fun fabric line. I have a jelly roll so I need to do something creative with it. It's too pretty to just sit on a shelf all rolled up. Beautiful quilting!
