Railways



Hello fellow quilters!  I’m Emily Bailey of Aunt Em’s Quilts and I’m excited to be back baking for Moda.  This fun, easy quilt reminds me of the cross country train ride I took with my middle son, Josh.  The casual pace of this kind of travel makes it very enjoyable.  Taking time to meet your fellow travelers as we took in the beautiful scenery was delightful.  I chose April Rosenthal’s Orchard for this quilt to represent the farmland we passed as we traveled.

Starlite Quilt

Hi, Bakers! I’m Heather Long of Coffee and Quilts and I’m thrilled to be sharing another quilt here at the Moda Bake Shop. This is my Starlite quilt, shown here in Nova fabrics by Basic Grey. A jelly roll and some background fabric combine to make these quick blocks. The light fabric in the half-square triangles reminded me of stars in the night sky. My mother-in-law thinks they look like butterflies fluttering across the quilt.

Ribbon Stars Quilt

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

I was absolutely thrilled to be able to make with quilt using Strawberry Jam by Corey Yoder.   This fabric line brings so many memories of when my two girls were little.  We lived in a small house with a very large back yard.  The yard was filled with fruit trees, a large vegetable garden and an even larger strawberry patch.    Once the strawberries were ripe I would send the girls out to the strawberry patch to pick berries to make homemade strawberry jam or to use for strawberry short cakes.  Most times I think they would eat more strawberries than made it into the bucket.

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!
