Bloggers Quilt Festival – Pop n Change

Bloggers Quilt Festival – Pop n Change

This beautiful quilt was my first attempt at a ‘real’ sized quilt and I’m entering it into The Bloggers Quilt Festival. I was given two Moda Freebird jelly rolls for Christmas one year and after many months of indecision, I was finally inspired by the Sugar Pop n Change Quilt on the Moda Bake Shop to open my beautiful beautiful jelly rolls. It was a close call, they were almost too lovely to open, but at least this way I get to admire all the pretty fabric on my bed everyday. The quilt measures about 90 inches square, and I just about managed to quilt it with simple straight lines on my little home sewing machine – that was one of the biggest sewing challenges I’ve ever faced! I backed it with a vintage floral sheet that was just a tiny bit too small so I used some leftover strips from the front to make it bigger. And it only took me about 18 months to make once I finally got up the courage to cut into the fabric. Thankfully I’ve got a bit quicker since this one!

  1. How lovely! It can be agonizing to cut into fabric but we need to remember that’s why we picked it up in the first place – to make something even more pretty than the fabric by itself.
