It's All Mine! Quilt

I finally made myself a quilt. I think it was my 2nd quilt that I ever made around 5 years ago that was the last time I made a quilt for me. I recently decided that I LOVED Momo's Wonderland line and for some reason I only like this line if it is used all together. I don't really like it separately. So I decided to do some major swapping & was able to get my hands on 2 layer cakes. This allowed me to add another row from the second layer cake since I am so tall!

This quilt is perfectly simple. This is the very first quilt that I have ever made where it is all made from one line. The front, back and binding is all Momo's Wonderland line. It makes this quilt one of my softest quilts!

Since the quilt is so simple I decided to free motion quilt flowers in each square. It actually was really easy since these are the flowers that I draw on paper all the time.

Simple patchwork


Straight out of the dryer. I just love the krinkle.

I doubt this quilt will ever be folded like this for a long time since I am always cold. It is so pretty I just love these colors all together.

This quilt measures 75.5" x 55.5" Expect to see it alot since it will always be with me well until summer hits.

Do you even know how jealous I am that you have had your Wonderland fabric for all of a month at best and I STILL have not made my "it's all mine" Wonderland quilt after 3 years?? ;) This rocks!!

Great idea to keep it simple - looks like a great snuggle quilt! I started a "just for me" quilt in 2010 - getting it longarm quilted next weekend - so excited to finally snuggle one of my own quilts after 2 years of sewing :)

That Momo line is still one of my favorites! In fact, I have a quilt made just from a layer cake too!!
