once upon a fairy tale quilt

I really love the fabric line, Fairy Tale Friends by Moda. I bought a bundle of fat quarters through a great deal from Craftsy. The fabric is rich in color and has a great texture.

 I used 4 fat quarters in the same color family to make this first quilt. The bundle came with two craft panels with scenes from fairy tales. I knew I wanted the quilt to showcase parts of the panel, but it took  a bit of thought to decide how to do it. Finally I chose a mottled red flannel as a frame for the pictures. The flannel is also used for the back of the quilt.

The best part of the project is that I only used 1 of the 4 colorways in the fat quarter bundle, so I have lots more fabric to mess around and make more quilts with :) Yippee! I'm such a fabric addict :)


  1. G'day Jamie. Wow, that is just gorgeous. Those panels are really great. Moda have some beautiful fabrics. I have five Moda Jelly rolls and two layer cakes, that I have collected over the last couple of years and are yet to use and the colours and designs are just beautiful. I must do something with them, not much use having them sitting in the cupboard, is it? Well done Jamie, you clever lady. Take care. Liz...

  2. G'day Jamie. Thanks for your comment on my post. The photo is of our lovely little boy "Lucky" It was when we still had the farm. Lucky is sitting on the quad bike that hubby used to ride and Lucky always went with him. The hills in the background were part of our property. Oh how I miss it all sometimes. We had some beautiful scenery to gaze out on. Hope your sewing is going well !!Take care. Liz...
