Oink-a-Doodle-Moo

Plans are a good thing until you discover your plans won’t work. That was the case for this finish: A while back I bought a quilt kit, but when I went to begin, I realized that I would have upside down animals on the borders. So, I winged it (or is it wung?)! Here is the result.

The quilt features the panel among other fabrics from Oink-a-Dodle-Moo by Jenni Ski for Moda. I can’t believe how cute these animals are! The baby goat has to be my favorite!

The quilt was used to practice getting my stitches small and even. I’m really happy how the quilting turned out!

I really like the look of interesting sashing. I really like my film strip chicks; I just imagine them in a little marching band! The vertical sashing was really my first go at improv piecing and I really liked it, though it took a long time. Each of the 3 strips took an hour and a half!

The quilt ended way smaller than inticipated, so the quilt went to Catholic Charities to keep a little babe warm. It was almost like a Christmas/ Birthday gift to others from me!
