The Ooo Quilt

The Ooo Quilt is a modern and fun project!  This is another custom quilt I made for a very lucky High School Graduate!  The Ooo Quilt was chosen from one of my Missouri Star Quilt Company Block books.  This was from Volume 1, issue 4.  In the book, this quilt was called “Jump Rings”.   We decided to use the school colors (orange and black), so the quilt could also pose as a Halloween Quilt.  The school mascot is a Pirate, so the skull and crossbones fabric worked out perfectly!  Let me show you all about this quilt so you can make one too!

The Ooo Quilt is a fun and modern quilt! This Quilt block is just one of many to make the entire quilt. Just make this quilt one block at a time and you will be thrilled with the results! This Modern Quilt is a super easy pattern! There is even a great video tutorial! #quilt #modernquilting

THE ooo QUILT – ASSEMBLY

Be sure to get yourself a copy of the Block Magazine.  In the pattern, you will find all the details for assembly.  The process is really simple.  Deciding upon the layout was fun.  It took me several times to finally settle upon a layout!

The Ooo Quilt is a fun and modern quilt! This quilt is a super easy pattern! This is the layout I tried before I sewed it all together! There is even a great video tutorial! #quilt #modernquilting

I numbered my rows, after I decided on the layout.  That really helps me to keep things straight when I get the blocks back to the machine for sewing.

TIP:  I used the following video tutorial as a general guide for assembly:

THE 000 QUILT – ALMOST FINISHED!

The Ooo Quilt is a fun and modern quilt! This quilt is a super easy and F-R-E-E pattern! There is even a great video tutorial! #quilt #modernquilting

Once I had my quilt top assembled, I drove to my friend’s house to rent some time on her wonderful long arm quilting machine.  Once you use a long arm quilting machine – it’s difficult to go back to quilting on your domestic (just sayin’).  I know everyone doesn’t have a long arm option, so you can always use free motion quilting on your domestic.  It’s simple!  Be sure you have a Darning Foot!  There are different kinds, based upon the shaft of your specific machine.  I always love my time with my friend’s long arm machine!  I would love to have one of my own, but I have NO ROOM!  Maybe someday!  Until then, I hope to keep Tia Curtis as a close quilty friend!  She is so helpful and wonderfully talented!  She even took this fun picture of me (with the pile of quilts I accomplished in one day)!

Once I sewed on the binding, I could not wait to take some pictures of this amazing quilt!  I convinced my husband to help me take some pictures of the finished quilt.  We took a drive to the Powell Gardens for some scenic pictures.  It is such a great location!  I liked this picture the best!  What do you think?

Making The Ooo Quilt was fun and easy!  I just loved making it and my customer loved the result!  Yay!

If I were ever to make this quilt again, I think I might simply use a Jelly Roll.  That would certainly make the process much quicker.  I hope you try to make one of these quilts.

Happy Quilting!

The Hashtag Quilt

Sometimes, I make commissioned quilts.  It is not very often that I do this – simply because it is very expensive for the customer.  I had a customer request that I make a quilt for their son, who would be graduating from High School.  We looked through quilting magazines and she decided upon The Hashtag Quilt.  Let me tell you all about it!

The Hashtag Quilt – assembly

I definitely found the Stripology ruler to be a MAJOR time saver for this quilt!  So many cuts of the same size!  I also highly recommend that you use a 1/4″ quilting foot (be sure you get the right one – tons of choices for different machine shafts).  There is tons and tons of chain piecing, so be sure to wind lots of bobbins too – or you can cheat and get the pre-loaded bobbins.  I won’t tell – hehe!

I created 2 kinds of strip units.  The first strip set was white/black/white and the second set was black/white.  I sewed these together and then cut them to size.  I sewed black strips perpendicular to create the hashtag.  I followed the instructions in the following video to create the remainder of my quilt top.  Check it out!

The Hashtag Quilt – almost finished!

Once I had my quilt top assembled, I drove to my friend’s house to rent some time on her wonderful long arm quilting machine.  Once you use a long arm quilting machine – it’s difficult to go back to quilting on your domestic (just sayin’).  I know everyone doesn’t have a long arm option, so you can always use free motion quilting on your domestic.  It’s simple!  Be sure you have a Darning Foot!  There are different kinds, based upon the shaft of your specific machine.

Making this Hashtag Quilt was fun!  There were times when I had to give my eyes a rest (all that black and white can make you dizzy).  But in the end, I just loved it and so did my customer!  Yay!

If I were ever to make this quilt again, I think I might use more color(s).  What color(s) would you choose?  Comment below and inspire me!

Happy Quilting!
