Do you guys ever wake up in the morning and you suddenly want to make something new and totally not on any WIP list or project list you are currently working on?
Well, I got bit with the new project bug on Saturday. Some of you may have jumped on the Spell it With Moda band wagon earlier this year. All of those cute little letter quilts and handy free letter patterns–it was hard for me not to dive right in. But then, Saturday morning, out of the blue–I “needed” to make a little letter mini of my own.
Moda Fabrics has a wonderful Spell it With Fabric pinterest board with links to all of the blog posts that feature the free printable letter patterns. I printed off Y,O,D,E,R and pulled together a fun mix of scrappy red fabrics and low volume background prints.
In about 2 hours, I had a completed “Yoder” mini quilt. These letters fly together–including cutting time they probably took about 15-20 minutes each. And with a short last name (so much handier than the “Hershberger” I used to be!) my little quilt came together quickly.
The quilting took a little bit of time–I opted for a one inch cross hatch and finished that part up yesterday afternoon.
Now, all that’s left is to add the binding! I have wanted a Yoder sign above my kitchen sink for years. I thought I wanted a wooden sign–but this little quilt was much more cost effective (I had all of the supplies) and just as cute! =) Can’t wait to get the binding on and hang it in it’s new spot.
