A QUILTY PLAN!

and even though it wasn't a well executed plan...it still turned out super cute...

I'm thrilled with the results!

Let's chat a little bit about how I made this uplanned quilty project of mine...shall we?

I started off with this Beautiful Charm Pack called Pumpkins and Blossoms by Joanna Figuero of Fig Tree Quilts for Moda...isn't it W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L?

I had a few extra strips leftover from a previous years collection called All Hallows Eve...also by Joanna...it was a jelly roll.  Don't you just LOVE the way Joanna designs her fabric lines to blend with the previous years?  The only real difference with the Pumpkins and Blossoms line  in comparison to the All Hallows Eve line is the lime green she added to the palette.   It's a WIN WIN situation for a serious quilter...such as myself...and it doesn't hurt that it tames my OCD just a tad...knowing I can't go wrong when I add more of her new fabric lines to my studio!  Thank You Joanna...for making my job a little simpler!

Since a Jelly Roll and a Charm Pack have a common denominator of 2.5"...I figured I could come up with a simple patchwork panel layout with 25-2.5" squares...using a 5 X 5 set.  This made it it finished at 10" square.  I made 6 of these panels and then quilted them simply with straight lines, using my walking foot.  It doesn't get any easier than that!

I found this great Open window frame at my local Hobby Lobby when it was marked 1/2 off...and had my Houston (aka my hubby) add some simple framing to the backside to formally divide the window openings into 6 even spaces so I could fit 6 pieces of "quilts" into the windows...they actually just pop in and out of the individual windows...if that makes any sense.

Clear as MUD...right?

None-the-less...I just love this way of showing off a full fabric line without making a huge quilt...and it gives me something to add to my wall above my foyer Bench where I have the Beautiful Fall Pillow I made last year with the All Hallows Eve Jelly Roll.

Isn't it just FABULOUS...

And remember...since the panels pop out easily...I can't wait to make something equally as Beautiful for my Christmas Display...maybe even a Patriotic themed one too!

Oh..the possibilities are ENDLESS!

Quilt ON!
