I downloaded  this pattern back in 2012 from Moda Bake Shop called Simply Woven. I made all the blocks back in January and I only used 3 different colors, it did not have the bold effect of that in the pattern. So these blocks sat in waiting.
now it's March and i had just watched the free weekend of The Quilt Show, and I caught the episode with Victoria Findlay Wolfe.  Her inspiration was "if you don't like it Cut it up"  So guess what I did next  YEP I cut it up!!

and I like how this turned out, it will finish at 48x48 and bonus I have all that wonderful(not negative) space to practice FMQ.  No Fabric wasted here.  I will do the Simply Woven Quilt again but with more colors. anna


  1. oh my goodness!!

    love your remake!

    thanks so much for linking up!


  2. This looks fantastic! Cut up, and in this layout makes for a very striking quilt. I made those blocks once, and added wider sashing (http://quiltfabrication.blogspot.com/2016/01/simply-woven-version.html) as alone, they weren't working for me. Thank you for sharing this on Midweek Makers!

    1. I like the wider sashing on yours. it is fun to stray away from original pattern.

  3. Great idea and it turned out so beautifully too.

  4. Thank you, It really did turn out better than I had imagined.
