A couple weekends ago my husband was at a NASCAR race in Delaware. I spent the weekend working on this quilt, Mojo by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company. The fabrics are from Moda's Apple Pie line. I am thinking of machine stippling this quilt myself.
I bought these fat quarters a few years ago and never really knew what to do with them. I loved these prints and colors, but I wasn't sure how they would look with the many pieces in this quilt. I actually thought it was just too busy; but the more I worked on it, the better I liked how it was turning out. I think this is a great summer quilt. Someone in my house likes to have the air conditioner on full tilt, so I am usually under a quilt.
This project took me about two weeks to piece. That is some kind of a record for me. My quilt group spent last Saturday together, and we swapped our 2 1/2" strips. I have four blocks done for my scrap basket quilt. Hmmmm, looks like I'm in a basket phase - more likely I'm a basket case :D
NancyZ brought a bar cookie to the sew day, and it was a hit. Here is the link for the recipe. Excellent! Thanks, Nancy!
