First Quilt in a Long While

Fresh out of the wash, Oh Fransson!'s Mod Sampler quilt-along quilt.

It's a gift for the daughter of an old friend.

There's a WHOLE lot of pink in this baby. Much more than I would normally go for but when someone looks this great in pink, come on! I'm pretty sure I had no choice.

The blocks were made entirely from fabric I already had. That was great. These are all fabrics that I really like but I just don't find a lot of opportunities to use them.
I bought the backing and sashing fabrics. The sashing is linen which I've never used in a quilt before. It was a little trickier than cotton. It can be pretty wily. I do really like how it turned out though.
The label is a piece of the linen I used for the sashing. It's stamped with Jacquard textile ink.
Gracie's mom is allergic to cats so I tried really hard to keep this quilt cat free. Stabone is sulking because I won't let him lie on it.


  1. Wow. That's awesome! I am totally inspired to dig my machine out and make something. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Nice work. Nicer cat...

  3. Wow! That's fantastic! She will treasure it always.

  4. I LOVE the tag on that! How wonderful for a gift!

  5. Love it! I meant to actually be a part of the quilt along...just didn't work out. Your quilt definitely inspires me to go ahead and have a go at it! She's gonna love it!

  6. Your new quilt is gorgeous. I'm not much for pink either, but wow, maybe I was wrong!

  7. This is beautiful! It's so girly and pink and I'm sure the new recipient will love it!

  8. I read along as Oh Fransson! imbued all her glorious quilting knowledge during the Mod Sampler Quilt-along... I have yet to start it, but I will, seriously!
    Your pink quilt looks lovely, and Friend's Daughter will LOVE it - she's a cutie :-) Well done!

  9. Oh Liz, it looks fantastic! I can't believe you finished it so quickly!
