Oink A Doodle Moo - Deja Vu

It's a case of Deja Vu here!


Back in May, I purchased some Oink A Doodle Moo fabric, by Jenn Ski for Moda.  I made this baby boy quilt called Oink A Doodle Moo in Blue and it sat in my Etsy shop until August when it was sold.




This week the remainders of that fabric have been calling on me to play!





First I made this little doll quilt and pillow set.


I was long inspired by the hexagon log cabin by Tessa Marie of The Sewing Chick and used her tutorial to guide me in creating just enough blocks to make this cute quilt.




This little doll quilt measures 15.75" x 17.75" and comes with a sweet little pillow.
The pillow was made using the white tone on tone used in the quilt and the pillow case
was my first attempt at french seams.



The backing is a cozy flannel with little yellow stars.
I quilted in the ditch and tied and buried all those little threads!


But I still had lots of Oink A Doodle Moo left over!




So I laid out some pieces on my design wall.
And added some bright scrappy bits to make these improv blocks with white strips.

I ended up with a quilt top that would finish at 25" square.  I wanted to make it larger - big enough for a baby quilt.  And was determined to make mitered borders for the very first time!



And ended up spending the afternoon making a tutorial!
Please take a look at my new Mitered Border quilt tutorial, included on my tutorial page,
which can be found just below my blog header.

Did you notice that there are STILL some scraps of Oink A Doodle Moo peeking out from behind that new finished top?  Looks like this new baby boy quilt is going to have a twin brother!

Keep On Quilting On!

Joanie's Trendy Quilts said...

Doesn't it seem like the more you use up scraps they seem to multiply? Love the doll quilt and cute pillow. Great job on the fussy cuts and sweet hexagon borders. I have made metered borders before. It has been awhile though. Will have to check out your tutorial!

I love how you mixed the solids with the novelty fabric in the last quilt - the mitred corners look snazzy!

Vicki Posten said...

You are so creative! I can't believe that you get things sewn up so quickly. Love both of these quilts.

Vera said...

You have been very progressive. Nice projects.

Awesome!! I heart that fabric and can see why you're drawn to it. I'll be checking out the tutorial soon, I actually need it for a quilt I'm working on. :)

Lorna love the quilts. Amazing how you get so very different quilts with the same fabric. Beautiful baby quilt and fabulous mitered corners. They give such a nice finish. Have a great weekend. Marie x (mlismore@optusnet.com.au)

Kelly @ My Quilt Infatuation said...

these are such cute quilts Lorna. I love how each one uses the same fabric line, but you've made them so unique!

Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!

Lorna.........I'm soooo going to make that hexagon log cabin! Thanks for the inspiration!!! Love them all!

Allison said...

These are SO cute!,

M-R Charbonneau said...

Yay, way to creatively use up those scraps. Fabulous, Lorna! So glad you linked up to TGIFF!

I'm laughing. After you commented on my oink-a-doodle-moo quilts and I lamented to you about how I just can't seem to finish up this fabric line – it's the fabric line that never ends!

So I followed through to find your blog and your MANY (with still more to come) oink-a-doodle-moo quilts! WOW! I'm humbled.

I so love those hexies! I think I'll do that with some little bits of Heather Ross I've been hoarding. This means Y-seams, right? I haven't tried those yet. I hope they're not too challenging.

And I also especially love the single strip of green farm equipment that circles the last quilt top in your series. The mitered corners make all the difference, don't they?! Thanks so much for the tutorial. It's another technique this quilting newbie has avoided but it might just be time to jump in with my remaining oink-a-doodle-moo.

I'm now one of your blog followers. Thanks for introducing yourself.

Tessa Marie said...

I get so excited when I see someone using one of my tutorials!! The little hex log cabins are so cute in the oink a doodle moo fabric! Love the cows!! Thanks for sharing Lorna!!

Gemma@prettybobbins said...

Great quilts but I really love that last one with all the negative space! I can't wait to see how you quilt it :) thanks for linking up xx
