Be Still My Heart – Valentine’s Day Wall Hanging


 

Welcome to our first Moda Bake Shop Tutorial! We have cooked up a fun and easy Valentine’s project for you. We like to say we are cooking up some love over here….Har-har.So let us introduce ourselves before we get started.Jenny (I refer to her as Mom, ALL the time) She is the family glue. She has spread her enthusiasm for quilting everywhere. She is fun and engaging. She does the majority of our videos and loves sharing new tips and tricks with anyone that will listen!Natalie (the OLDER sister) also is a creative genius. (Really, that is just my opinion. But I take myself very seriously and thus believe myself, mostly.) Natalie comes up with lots of our patterns and has a bunch of FUN things coming out real soon. She is also the boss of our shipping department. If you’ve ever called the shop, you’ve probably talked to her.Me, well I’m Sarah. The (MUCH) younger than Natalie-sister. My main job is just to look good. And believe me, it is a full time job. I also get to handle all the FUN business side of things. You know, like the glamorous paperwork, taxes, payroll, marketing… are you bored yet, stuff. Really, we are thrilled to be here and have lots more fun things to share!

Dig in and enjoy. (We know we’re not the best at writing tutorials, so if you have trouble, we made it in a video for everyone found at the bottom of this post).
