Meet Cute Quilt Finish

Another finish under the belt!

This is the Meet Cute Quilt by the Moda Bake Shop Blog. I’ll admit I had some troubles with this one. I tried to be very vigilant about maintaining a quarter inch seam allowance but even so, I had trouble getting the blocks to be the same size. And the blocks ended up being rectangles instead of squares, which made joining them together difficult. It is very colorful though and perfect for a baby. It finished at 52″ square.

I feel a little bad about how late this quilt is. I ended up using a lot of scraps from my scraps bin and about a third of a yard of fabric from my stash for the piecing. The backing was all from my stash, about 3 yards. I had a lot of backing left over actually so I used that to make the binding. I originally planned on having a white binding but I like how the blue turned out. It makes the quilt look a little more boyish.

Here’s a close-up of the fabric on the back. I had this cute Mickey fabric laying around that ended up being perfect for the amount I needed to make the backing just a smidge bigger.

Feels great to have this one done. On to the next!
