Half Moon Modern TGIFF


So a few months ago I was browsing Pinterest (as you do) and came across a wonderful quilt made by Belinda (BGMom1) using Half Moon Modern. The pattern she used was Roller Rink by Elizabeth from Oh Fransson.

I loved the combination of grey and white with the bright colours of HMM so I thought I would give something similar a go. I had a layer cake and a pack of charm squares in HMM so I set to work. I cut 2.5" x 5" strips and sewed in blocks of 6 strips. I then sashed each block with 2" strips, alternating with grey and white.This was one of those quilts that come together quickly and easily. The top came together over a week or so.



And here it is! Or half of it anyway...it's a king single size - with a 7 block width and 6 block length.








The backing is simple white homespun with a strip of red along the length.




Master T is the receiver of this quilt - he is very happy as it includes some "Ninja writing" in some of the blocks. The quilt was quilted by my new quilting friend Jenny.




I finished up with a plain grey binding...my first attempt at machine binding. Let me say....I certainly need some more practice with this!!

Linking up today with Laura from Quokka Quilts for TGIFF

  1. Half moon modern ranks in my top 10 fabric lines but for some reason I only have 3 fat quarters. Your quilt is beautiful; the colors really pop with the gray and white. I am sure it will be a well loved and treasured quilt!!
