Oink a Doodle Moo (x) times Two..or Three

Hello from Jo and Kelli at Jo's Country Junction.  If you've read our blog, you know that we are farm gals and our guys are farmers. When we saw Moda's new line "Oink a Doodle Moo", we just knew we had to design something using it.  We live, breathe, eat and sleep farming...we might as well sew it too!  We ended up with not one, not two, but THREE baby quilts all from one jelly roll!! Isn't that neat? After you read the tutorial, you'll want to come over to our blog and sign up for a chance to win a free jelly roll to help you get started on your own set of quilts.  Read on and we'll show how to make them.

4.  With right sides together, connect 1 pieced rectangle to a printed rectangle on the long side.  Press to the printed rectangle.  Repeat with the second printed rectangle.

Please please take care of that rubbish that just got posted!
This guy and his idea about American women is sick!

Please take care that such garbage has no place on this site!!!
Thank you!

Don't worry about it; he is his own worst enemy. He will get the kind of "wife" he deserves.

Barbara said...

Hi Jo and Kelli! Amazing as usual! Just love the multi-colored bear paw blocks! These would be nice as table toppers or even small picnic blankets. Too cute!

Anjeanette said...

I adore the ribbon edging on this! Such a great idea!

Stacy Ferner said...

I made quilt #3 and it is adorable. There were some instructions missing (row of squares around the blocks), but easy enough to figure out.

Linda said...

I am making all three quilts for my grand babies for Christmas. I would like to make a correction on the cutting directions for quilt 2. There should be 40 - 3.5 inch white rectangles and 40 - 3.5 inch assorted strips to make the HSTs for the bear paw blocks.
I love these quilts! Thank you for the patterns.

Thanks for the correction Linda- I thought I had done something wrong while cutting all my pieces for the three quilts.
