Hoots Mon!

Before any of you point out that “the moose loose aboot this hoose” is referring to a mouse, I don’t care, alright? πŸ˜‰ This is the finished Hoots Mon quilt and it has been suggested that this is the most worthwhile achievement of my life so far.

Size – 52″ x 41″
Number of blocks – N/A
Time to piece – It was just glued, not stitched. About 6 hours maybe not including design time and getting the size prepped.
Time to quilt – 6 hours approx
Fabric – All sorts! Mostly Kona solids, Β£2 a yard orange clearance stuff from Fabric Guild, some Sock Monkey texture and the rest all scraps.
Backing Fabric – Β£2 a yard floral stuff from the Fabric Guild
Binding Fabric – White Klona- with my favourite facings method.
Threads – Coats Moon off white in the bobbin. A multitude of different Guterman threads on top to blend.
Batting – 80/20 Soft and Elegant
Quilting- Realistic texture, lus various leaf shapes and swirls FMQ on the orange.
