Sewvivor - knitnlit

Hi and welcome if you are visiting via Sewvivor! I have decided to throw my hat into the ring, and 'audition' for the Sewvivor: quilted edition! :) 
I had a very difficult time trying to decide what quilt to enter for this competition, and I finally chose this one I just finished up this week! 

I am so very very pleased with the way this one came out - it was many many hours of piecing, cutting and pressing! 
The pattern is Simply Woven from the Moda Bake Shop, and I had a good time picking some of my favorite fabrics to use in it.  

I did some simple straight line quilting (my favorite!) and I backed it with some of my favorite DS prints, and used this great grey and white striped binding. This one finished at twin size, and I think I will put it away to save for one of my girls when they are a little older. I can't bear to part with it! 

Crossing my fingers and toes I'm one of the 16 selected! How fun would that be?? 


  1. Choosing an entry was such a toughie for me too ;-)
    You have a lot of work in your fabric selections here, and a beautiful finish -- Good Luck!

  2. The striped binding is fabulous! Best, Kate

  3. Lovely quilt! I'm a straight-line quilter, too.

  4. Love the pattern and the bright colors. Good luck.

  5. Eep love the brightness!! Good luck - hope it does well :)
