A few months ago I was talking with a friend about not having a land line telephone anymore, and the question came up: "What about the phone jack in the wall?" I told her my solution and realized that I hadn't shared my Moda Love quilt on the blog yet.
Aunt Brenda gifted to me a charm pack and some extra coordinating fabric for my birthday a few years back, and I decided to make a Moda Love quilt. The fabric line is Block Party by Sandy Gervais, and the pattern (which can be made with a layer cake, charm pack, or mini charm pack) is a free PDF document from Moda that can be found here. I sorted my 5" squares into color groupings and even used the pattern print-out as a coloring page.
This quilt is a lovely arrangement of squares and half square triangles, not too complicated but so pretty! I custom quilted it, and I love the illusion that curved quilting gives to the straight piecing in the center star.
This was a project that I made just for me, but I wasn't sure where I would hang it at home. When we cancelled the land line and took the phone off the wall, I knew just what to do to eliminate that eye sore! My husband hung this quilt over it.
This ugly thing is still there in case we need it but out of sight, out of mind! So, if you've got something unsightly on the wall, make a pretty quilt and cover it up. Enjoy the free quilt pattern, and thanks for stopping by!
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
