After rejecting the Satsuki Jewel quilt to give as a wedding gift, I started looking closer at this jelly roll, Grunge by Moda. The Satsuki Jewel quilt felt too traditional and scrappy, and I thought a more modern quilt would be a better choice for the recipients in mind.
I did a search on the fabric, just casually looking for ideas, and I happened on a pattern featuring this exact fabric line! http://static.fatquartershop.com/media/wysiwyg/pdf/Grunge.pdf
Kinda felt like cheating, but it was pretty much the look I was hoping for, and I’d never done a pattern like it before.
Lots of cutting…
The blocks were really fun to piece! I enjoyed putting all the different colors together in so many different combinations. So satisfying.
Free motion quilting
Trimming off the edges is always thrilling
Love this one! Was fun and easy, and I look forward to trying this pattern with other fabrics.
