Simply Silly Quilt

Hello, I am Sandy Workman, owner of Pine Needles at Gardner Village and designer of Pine Mountain Designs. I am so excited to share with you my first Moda Bake Shop project! When we saw the Make Life quilt labels at market we fell in love with them and knew they would mix with the charm squares to make a darling quilt. I hope you enjoy making this Simply Silly Quilt!

1 - Make Life charm pack
1 - Make Life quilt label pack
1/3 yard inner border
2/3 yard outer border
1/3 yard binding
1 2/3 yard backing

6 make life buttons

Select and sort:
  1. In the Make Life charm pack there are 6 charm squares that are repeated. Select those prints and set aside.
  2. Use the remaining charm squares and the quilt labels to lay out your quilt center consisting of 7 rows with 6 squares in each row.


  1. From each of the 6 duplicate charm pack prints you previously set aside cut a large and a small flower. (I used the sizzix scallop circle cutter. If you do not have access to this you could cut a 2" and a 3 1/2" circle using scallop or regular pinking shears).
  2. From inner border print cut four strips 2 1/2" x width of fabric.
  3. From outer border print cut four strips 5" x width of fabric.


  1. Flower blocks: The flowers are sewn in place using a raw edge technique. Place the large flower in the center of charm square. Sew in place 1/2" from edge. Place small flower centered on large flower. Again, sew in place 1/2" from edge.
  2. Quilt Center: Sew charm squares and quilt labels together in rows 1 through 7 and then sew rows together to form quilt center.
  3. Inner Borders: Sew 2 1/2" inner border strips to sides. Press. Trim away excess. Sew 2 1/2" inner border strips to top and bototm of quilt. Trim away excess.
  4. Outer Borders: Sew 5" outer border strips to sides of quilt. Press. Trim away excess. Sew outer border strips to top and bottom of quilt. Press. Trim away excess.
  5. Quilt and bind.
  6. Attach Make Life button in the center of each flower. Enjoy!

Great idea with those labels! So cute! :) and I ♥ those little flowers. My MIL is a scrapbooker... I bet she has something that could cut those for me!

Love the quit! but having problems finding the ingredients!

Was wondering where you can purchase the make life quilt labels. I went to sweetwater's blog and didn't find theses specific labels on their etsy site.

Is it part of a kit?


~*~ said...

Pam-just delete the part of the URL that the link send you to and you go directly to the site.

Welcome to the Bakeshop!

What a great quilt. I really love this fabric line and the labels are soooo cute. I never knew Moda made these quilt labels and I haven't seen them anywhere. Is it to late too locate any?

Welcome to the Bake Shop! I love the Big Shot cutter. Very cute Sandy:)

I'm with Kim. I can't find those labels. I wish they wouldn't post something that is unattainable. I cant make the flowers either, they wouldn't be right with pinking sheers, the scallops are much too small on the sheers.

Pine Needles said...

Sorry if you are having a hard time finding the labels. They really are fantastic! You can call my store (the number is on Pine Needles blog) to get them if you would like. Thanks! Sandy

Really great job Sandy. Love this.

I just finsihed this quilt...and it is very very very cute. HOWEVER....the quilt labels are TERRIBLE!! I'm so disappointed in MODA....they claim to be 5"x5" but they are most definately NOT. Some are bigger, and at least two of them were more than 1/2" smaller on two sides. SO frustrating to sew!
