Spell It With Moda Quilt: Finished

I've been getting quite slack on the finished quilts and blog sharing, so let me today update you on my FINISHED Spell It With Moda quilt. I started this quilt back in 2014 when the blog hop started, it was such a cool idea (good job, Moda!) and it perfectly tied in with my sister, Bianca being pregnant with her first baby ;-) so I had an excuse to pull out all my cute novelty 30s reproduction prints and primary colours for a happy baby quilt.  I think it took me about a month or so to make all the blocks and finish the top. They were so fun to do! Then of course I folded it up and put off the quilting 'for another day'… 

8 months later baby Benjamin was born, but alas the quilt wasn't ready. Doh. Festival Of Quilts prep, general life stuff got in the way, yada yada … it was always the bottom of the list. Then my patient (cough!) sister gently reminded me it was his birthday coming up in October, so perhaps I could finish it?? ;-) so I got to work last month and basted and quilted it. Finished the day before we travelled to London for his birthday, in typical last-minute-Jessie fashion. 

 It was the best thing gifting the quilt! Sooo special. They all loved it, phew! Aren't they a cute bunch too! 


I'm super sad not to have any better official finished photos though, I can only blame myself for finishing it in the late afternoon and not being able to take any decent photos. Hopefully these iPhone pictures will do! I used a really nice backing fabric as well, which of course I forgot to photograph. It has a really fun scrappy binding which works well with the low-volume and Kona Snow background.
