Lady of the Lake Pillow Cover

Do you love Half Square Triangles? I designed this quilted pillow as a tribute to one of my favorite quilt blocks, Lady of the Lake, using my favorite piecing unit, the HST!  The design affords opportunity for some fun fabric play with value and color to produce a handsome addition to your home décor.  I hope you enjoy the recipe!

Cheeky Circles

Who’s ready to try out some curved piecing today? This is Kristina Brinkerhoff from Center Street Quilts and if you haven’t tried curved piecing yet, you really should! I labeled this quilt as ambitious, but it’s really not very complicated overall. There are just a lot of steps involved that might be unfamiliar to some: printing out the template, cutting out the pattern pieces, curved piecing, and setting the quilt on point. The blocks are big, though, and once you get all the pieces cut out, the piecing goes pretty quickly! Will you give it a try with me?

Grandma’s Pinwheel Quilt

Hi, Everyone!  It is Jessica Dayon (@jessicadayon) here today sharing a quilt pattern with you using Cheeky by Urban Chiks!  I loved this line as soon as I saw it and knew I wanted to do something special with it.  The pinwheels that I’ve composed this quilt of give off a vintage vibe and really look so pretty in this line.

Trimming the half square triangles in the pattern can be tedious but if you break it down over a few days, it really goes by pretty quickly.  Also, I love that this pattern only uses 3 charm packs from the fabric line plus a little bit of border and you get a pretty big quilt from it!

Stars and Stripes Flag Quilt

Hi Bakers!  I am Lisa Jo Girodat of Neverlandstiches and am so excited to be back on Moda Bakeshop to share this new quilt pattern.

I have a confession to make…I love history!  I am such a geek! I love anything to do with history I am addicted to shows such as Vikings, The Last Kingdom, Knight Fall, anything to do with the American Revolution or Civil War.  I listen to the soundtrack from Hamilton at least once a week.  When I saw the beautiful new collection by the French General, Viva Le France I could not resist creating a quilt, which could represent an American Flag. I just love how this collection provides variations of blues and reds so that I could create almost a gradient/worn effect.
