Toddler Quilt Moda Oink A Doodle Moo! Straight Line Quilting

A special little girl I know is going to be a big sister soon.  This is the toddler size quilt I made her.  She lives next door to her grandma who has horses, pigs and goats (not sure if she has cows).  I purchased Moda's, Oink A Doodle Moo panel in red and then used my own fabric scraps for the rest of the quilt top.
After I received the panel in the mail, I decided I did not like the red chicken wire print around the panels.  It looked too boyish, so I cut off the red and added thin pink borders and wider white borders.....
I cut my scrap pieces at 5" in length and varying widths.  The white strips are 3 inches wide.  The finished quilt is 45" squared.
I used straight line quilting for this project.  For the 45" width, that came to 150 straight lines.  I used the edge of the walking foot as my guide.

For the binding, I used Riley Blake's, Hello Sunshine stripe in multi color.
For the backing I used Riley Blake's, Hello Sunshine Birds in red.  I thought it was the perfect choice for the backing to go along with the animals on the front and match all the colors of the scraps.  It also looks like a paisley print from a distance.

I love the straight line quilting...........look at all those rows!

  1. Adorable! OMGoodness this is so cute! I may have to copy your design. I have a friend whose daughter is having a boy and I have a lot of blue scraps. This is one of the cutest little quilts I've ever seen!

  2. I love what you did with the panels! So perfect for a little girl. I keep looking at the Oink A Doodle Moo fabric for a quilt for my son for Christmas. He is grown, but he just bought some acreage and says he's going to have a mini-farm. So far all he's got is a couple of cows.
