I started and finished my first quilt for Project Inspiration this week.

This was a tutorial by Katy of I'm a Ginger Monkey for Fat Quarter Gang.  The tutorial has been languishing in my Pinterest folder for quite some time and I'm happy I finally made it.  I followed the tutorial very closely, if by very closely you mean downloading the mustache template and checking to see what size to cut my blocks LOL.

I used Therm o Web to heat set the mustaches and then raw edge appliqued them.  The fabric is all from Basic Grey's PB&J line for Moda.  I LOVE the fabrics for this projects.  Originally I was going to use all solids for the back and patterns for the mustaches but I'm glad I changed it up.  The navy mustaches are my favorite by far :)

I backed it with white dimple minky and bound it in the Navy Grunge Solid.  I didn't use batting but I did stitch in the ditch to hold the two layers together.  This was my first time "quilting" minky and it wasn't as bad as I feared.  That could have been thanks to the bazillion pins I used LOL.

Linking up with Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts.
