Blogger’s Quilt Festival | Moxie

AmysCreativeSide.com

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.

    1. Thank you so much! I decided to be brave and “just do it” with the quilting. I figured if I looked at it as a massive practice sandwich I’d be a little less nervous quilting. Also, it helped knowing it was going to a 9 year old who probably wouldn’t judge my quilting skills! LOL!!

    1. Yes, I did quilt this with the 1500. I didn’t struggle with it as much as I thought I would, especially with the rings in the circle. I love this machine, it’s really a workhorse!

    1. Thank you! Tula Pink’s pattern and fabric made it easy! I did stretch myself with the quilting. I figured it was a “do it now and start learning or never take the leap” moment. I’m really happy with the way it turned out!
