Weekly Finish #22: Moment of Zen

Moment of Zen with Cider


Finished size: 85" x 85"

This is an original design by Jo's Country Junction which I saw last year in a blog post. 

The pattern was published in the August/September 2020 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting and I knew I had that issue.  

I also knew it'd be perfect for my niece Sandra and ordered a bundle of fat quarters of the Cider fabric with the intention of giving her the quilt for her birthday this year in February.  Well, time flew by and I missed her birthday deadline.  

But I was determined to make this quilt for her and started it the first week of May and finally finished it last week.  I will be seeing her in a couple of weeks and I'm sure she'll be surprised when I give it to her.

I quilted it with the Curls Too design installed in my Moxie and used Warm & Natural batting.  

I LOVE how this quilt turned out and am tempted to keep it .... IJK!  I'm seriously thinking of making one for myself but it would have to be with a different fabric as the Cider line by Basic Grey is now very hard to find.

UPDATE I gifted this quilt to my darling niece on August 7 to celebrate her birthday in April.  She LOVED it!

Until next time ... 
Be happy and keep on quilting!


  1. Oooh, what a lovely quilt to make for your niece and in such a generous size, too. I'm sure it is going to be well loved!

  2. Such a striking quilt .... beautiful and your niece will love it!

  3. I'd be tempted to keep this one too! Your niece will love it. Such a pretty quilt. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.

  4. I just love the way this warm and soft palette turned out. A winner all round!

  5. Such a gorgeous quilt. What a masterpiece!

  6. Beautiful! Orange and blue are my favorite complementary color pair, and they look lovely in this quilt alongside the greenish browns and yellows! (BTW: I tend to fall in love with lines after they've been out for a while. It's hard to find designs from Cider, but Sew Lux Fabrics has some yardage left. Just sayin'!)
