Moose in the Cabin + Modern Quilt Plans

My moose are not loose any longer, they are getting domesticated and put into limited squares.

The quilt top is getting close to finish, one more applique block to be added, and then a border. Six days to get this far must be a record for me. Hope to get the quilt top done by tomorrow. It is so satisfying to only use fabrics from my stash; I seem to have a lot of woodsy prints and fall colors! The pattern for this quilt is a freebie from Benartex, it is called Moose in the Cabin, and is lap size.

I have to finish this quilt as soon as possible, because I have a quilt to make for a wedding in August!

I am planning to make a modern quilt from the book Optical Illusions by Kansas City Star Books. I won this book in a blog hop last fall, and there are several gorgeous modern quilt designs to choose from. I have never made a quilt from solids only, before, so this will be a new experience!

  1. How cute are those moose! I look forward to see this quilt finished and that sounds like it will be sooner than later if you have a wedding quilt to make.

  2. Your moose and lob cabin blocks are looking fantastic, Anita! This is going to be a gorgeous lap quilt. Can't wait to see what you choose to work on from your book. I wonder if you will find working with solids as addictive as I do!

  3. What cute moose and I really like the look of your quilt!


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a quick note!
