I tend to tease my Mom about her obsession with the Moda Grunge line….
But I gotta admit…. it has its uses! I bought this chunk to go with a fat quarter bundle I’d ordered from MSQ last year.
I wanted something that wasn’t white, but would provide a good contrast against those darker fabrics, and still have a spacey feel. The grey Grunge stars were just the ticket.
I actually have enough fabric to get two baby quilts out of this bundle, but on this particular afternoon, I was focused on using the panel that went with this line.
I haven’t done a lot with panels (the Owl quilt being my only one), but Mom’s done a few and they are always super cute. Not to mention, it makes putting a top together that much faster.
This panel was already long enough (about 40 inches) it just needed something to make it wider. And with a space quilt what is better than STARS???
In no time, I had a pile of them. And that Grunge couldn’t be more perfect to give them some serious pop!.
A few seams later…
That’s one completed quilt top! Easy peasy!
AND, I’ve got an awesome piece for the back…
And more Grunge for the binding!!!
But before I go… Burton would like to remind you…
He’s still the cutest thing in this galaxy!

That is just the cutest thing! That grunge fabric is nice. I am going to have to look that up.
That is just adorable!! If my baby brother were not all grown up, I would get it for him – he is an areospace engineer who was sure, growing up, that my parents had adopted him from Mars! LOL
What an adorable quilt! I love Grunge, but tend to just use the solids.
I think that is a fabulous top Val. How perfect the fabric all works together. But I do have to agree that Burton is much, much better.
What a transformation from just a panel to a fabulous top with the addition of your star blocks. I love the Moda grunge line also. Some great blending fabrics available. Burton just adds to the beauty.
I also love Grunge fabric, but I haven’t used much of it. Great idea to add stars to the sides of the panel.
We’re agreed on Burton’s beauty but this quilt is a great use of a panel! It’s funny, I pulled out a pile of panels I’ve bought and stalled on how to use them! Duh! Very good job on this one!
