New Quilts: Aura & Tiny Bits

So you may have noticed these quilts already in my pictures from my last trip to Shipshewana, but here's better pictures for ya.
 For this version of Aura, I immediately fell in love with Kate Spain's new collection, Honey Honey. I was going back and forth over which background to use. I ended up choosing this navy from the Primitive Muslins by Moda, but the other option was a Charcoal Gray from the Bella Solids. I love how the navy makes the colors pop though.
 I quilted this one very similarly to the original, but both quilts look very different, don't you think?
 And this version of Tiny Bits isn't much different than the original. They both use the same sashing and binding, but the newer version uses Jenn Ski's new line for Moda, Oink A Doodle Moo. Not only is it absolutely adorable, it's super fun to say.
The original version was made with Jenn's last line, Ten Little Things, so that's why the quilts are so similar. I love the quilting in this one, it's great for modern baby quilts that seem to be everywhere these days.

Honey Honey is definitely in stores now and is ready for purchase while Oink A Doodle Moo should be arriving any day now.

I may just be making more new versions of some more book quilts in the future. Check back for those as I'll share pictures on here!

  3. Your Oink-a-doodle-Moo quilt is lovely. What attracted me to it was the quilting. I've not attempted quilting on my machine (Pfaff) other than straight lines. Would that be something I could do on a machine like mine? If not, do you know of someone who could quilt that pattern for me? I don't mind mailing. I live in the San Diego area. Thanks.

    1. Quilting like this is quite easy if you can drop your feed dogs on your machine. It is a free motion pattern that simply swirls in and around square-like shapes and moves on to the next. It's similar to this design by Leah Day, I just used varying shapes and sizes instead.
