Friday Finish: Wonky Pods (TGIFF)

Hello!  This week I'm hosting TGIFF, so if you're here because of that then thank you so much for stopping by.

This week I'm sharing a special finish with you - a quilt for my youngest daughter, who will soon be moving into a big girl bed.  The quilt is my own design and was heavily inspired by some of Elizabeth Hartman's work, in particular this quilt


I love that it's a girl's pink quilt, without actually being overly pink.


The blocks are made using a wonky cut layout I came up with last year, after playing around with a charm pack.  At the time, I knew I wanted to float them randomly across a quilt top.


I wanted something with a lot of negative space that I could meander over, I have wanted to FMQ an allover meandering pattern for a little while now, and I am really pleased with the result.

Meandering detail
 

The back is a vintage sheet.  The batting and binding fabric were purchased specifically for this project, everything else came from my stash.



QUILT STATS:
Finished Size: 56" x 85"
Pattern: Wonky Pods - available in my Craftsy store
Fabric: a "curated" charm pack from my stash, Moda Bella Azalea for the pod borders, Moda Bella Ivory for the background.
Backing: vintage sheet (100% cotton) from my collection
Binding: Michael Miller Ta Dot
Pieced and Quilted: By me, on my domestic sewing machine- my first time FMQ meandering!

Thanks again for stopping by, now why not link up your own finishes?  I will also be linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts and Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Sew Cute Tuesday and Fabric Tuesday.
