MoMo Wonderland Redux

MoMo Redux Front

Finally, the quilt I’ve been working on here and there for 2 months is finished! Several projects came and went while my second MoMo Wonderland quilt sat waiting patiently for me to find time to work on it. Last night, while the snow was falling and we were watching Charlie Brown, I finally found the time to hand stitch the binding.

I just love this fabric and sadly, this is the last of my stash. I used a layer cake for the front. I cut each piece in half, sewed 2 together and then cut them to squares. The back is my favorite MoMo Wonderland print – the butterflies. I just happened to stumble across them at one of my local quilt shops. So lucky!

I quilted this one with straight lines. It was my first time using the walking foot on my new Bernina. W-O-W. It is SO much better than my old Walmart Brother walking foot! I see a lot more straight line quilting in my future. In one direction, the lines are quilted 1/4″ on each side of the seams. (So 2 lines in that direction) In the other direction I quilted down the seams. (So 1 line in that direction). The final quilt measures 38″ x 54″.

    I love it! I love that back, too. I use my Bernina walking foot for so many things – I would be lost without it!

    Beautiful!!! I have been procrastinating on doing the binding on my very first quilt because I’ve heard how difficult it is…I’ll probably mess it up.

      It really is not hard – you should give it a try! Really, if you’ve made it all the way to the binding, the hard part is done. You can do it!

    Thanks for the kind words of encouragement…I just trimmed all the excess batting off the quilt, so it’s “officially” ready…now to cut the fabric for the binding…or rather, decide which fabric i’ll use for that part…

      Hi Sharon! Thanks for your comment. Hmmm, this quilt was made 6 years ago and I don’t have it anymore…but it looks like I said I cut a layer cake in half. So I’m guessing they are 5″ x 10″. The fabric is all from the MoMo Wonderland line by Moda which is now out of print.
