Wonky Pods (Blogger's Quilt Festival)

My entry in the Modern Quilts category for the Blogger's Quilt Festival is Wonky Pods.  I made this quilt for my youngest daughter, who has recently moved to a big girl bed.  This quilt was the first time I had free-motion quilted a bed size quilt, and I absolutely love the texture of the all-over meandering - I will definitely do this style of quilting again.

You can read more about this quilt here.  This quilt was mostly inspired by Elizabeth Hartman's work.

Finished Size: 56" x 85"
Pattern: Wonky Pods - the pattern will soon be 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!

Thank you Amy for hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival, there are so many inspiring quilts!


  1. "Curated charm pack"; I've got to remember that phrase, because that is what I think I do all the time. Sounds better than "went to my stash." Love the pink squares for a little girl quilt.

  2. this is such a lovely quilt :-)

  3. congratulations on your beautiful quilt work

  4. Great job - love all those pods!

  5. Dropped by from Blogger's Quilt Festival - loved this quilt when you shared on TGIFF and great to see it again now :D

  6. What a wonderful quilt for a little girl. And I love your wonky pods!

  7. I love the pink and orange colors together against the white - great quilt!

  8. Lovely quilt, such a brave amount of negative space and restricted colour scheme. It looks snuggly to :)

  9. This one is lovely too! I just like this color combo!
