Welcome to the New Moda Bake Shop!

The Moda Bake Shop was started in 2009 as a resource for quilters and sewists to find original patterns for using Moda Fabrics’ wonderful range of precuts. Five years and nearly 1000 posts later, Oda May decided that it was time to shake things up a bit. Our redesigned site is filled with the same high quality recipes you’ve come to expect with a more streamlined look that should make it easier to find exactly what you’re looking for.

A few of the exciting changes:
