Grunge Moda Basic Grey – Wedding Gift

IMG_0474

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.

Trimming off the edges is always thrilling

Sewing the binding

I love using wonderclips to hold the binding in place while I hand sew – it keeps the edges from fraying so much in the meantime.

Love this one! Was fun and easy, and I look forward to trying this pattern with other fabrics.
