Feeling Groovy ~ Jiffy Ric-Rac Quilt

Freshly laundered.
Scrumptiously wrinkled and ready to be wrapped around.

I used Camille Roskelley’s (Thimble Blossoms) pattern ~ Jiffy Ric-Rac and Riley Blake’s fabric, Feeling Groovy. The backing is a Kona solid in Lime. I quilted the top with an echo around the ric-racs.

Still Working on Quilts ~ variations of Thimble Blossoms’ pint-sized

Well…I finished most of two quilt tops over the weekend. I need to get the fabric for the borders and backing.

I used the patterns from Thimble Blossoms ‘Pint-Sized’…with a few changes.

I finished the 80 3.5″ blocks…the top is 25’x31′ right now.

I went to the quilt shop where I bought the Moda Hushabye Charm pack and found out that they only had the Moda Bake Shop pieces, not bolts of fabric! OY! Couldn’t find it anywhere in Reno and Sparks…so I just ordered from Hancock’s of Paducah online for the border and backing fabric. ON SALE! $4.98/yard. Hoping to have it by Thursday or Friday…will finish the quilt over the weekend.

Next quilt…the pint-sized rectangle. I had planned on doing this for a group challenge using the colors: Brown, Pink, Cream, Turquoise. I chose BRIGHT fabrics…cut into 1.5″ strips in different lengths.

Here it is…not sure which fabric I plan on using as the border. Also not sure if I’m going to use it for the challenge. I may quilt it up and give it to the Kids Kottage.

Right now I just have them hanging up on the wall. I go into the room and just look at them…the border fabric will come to me, hopefully sooner than later.

Cutting out new quilt using Moda Hushabye Charm Pack

I dropped in at Windy Moon Quilt shop after work yesterday looking for one thing and ended up with something else…a pattern that uses charm packs, which I already had at home.

Thimble Blossoms ‘pint-sized’ #129 designed by Camille Roskelley.

The quilt block itself is also known as Scrapy Patch, Whirlygiggles, Scrapy Cartwheels, Pinwheels, Whirligigs and so on.

I took out my charm packs (5″ squares) that I had and chose Moda’s Hushabye by Tula Pink….blues, pinks, greens and browns.

First I cut all the charms into four 2.5″ squares…along with an equal amount of neutral fabric, which I have many yards of ~ an ivory on ivory print.

Then you just cut and sew as instructed until you get a 3.5″ block looking like the wee one below:

One down, 79 more blocks to go! LOL!

When all put together, the quilt will be 40″ x 45″…great size for a baby quilt or wall hanging.

Materials needed for this quilt are as follows:

1 Charm pack (or 40 5×5 squares)
3/4 yard neutral fabric
3/4 yard for outer border
1/3 yard for inner border
1/2 yard binding
1-1/2 yards backing
