Thanks to a Facebook blogging support group, I just learned there is a twice-yearly quilt event for bloggers that coincides with the Spring and Fall Quilt Markets. You can read all about it HERE.
Obviously this will be my first year participating, and I am excited to enter the Moxie quilt I finished in August! I know I just wrote about this recently, so this will already be familiar to some… and I’d appreciate it if you would suffer through another blog post to get to the voting information at the bottom! I am entering this into the Large Quilts category.
My online bestie, Sarah of Georgia Girl Quilts, and I both fell head over heels in love with Tula Pink’s Fox Field line. We also fell pretty hard for Tula’s free Moxie Pattern and we decided to sew it “together”. We both live very far apart, so we chose a date to start sewing and shared all of our progress with each other over Instagram.
This was the first time that I had sewn curves for a quilt. Tula’s pattern has very gentle curves, and it is perfect for a beginner. I kept to the original pattern, with the only addition being a 5″ scrappy border to the outside of the quilt to make it a little bigger. The quilt measures 60″ x 69″. I used Angela Walter’s original quilting design as my inspiration for the free motion quilting.
This quilt was made for my niece’s birthday and will be mailed to her next week. I embroidered a label using DMC floss #150 on Kona Jade fabric and pieced it into the backing fabric, Fox Field’s Foxtrot in Sunrise.
