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).

Love this heart> I remember helping my (then 22 year old) son make an entire quilt for his girlfriend with this heart pattern. They are not together anymore, but he learned how to sew and we had great mother/son bonding over this project.

Good to see you girls on the bake shop. I've got another order I'll be placing soon. Gotta get something for the Moda Bake shop contest, and there is no better place than your shop to get it!

Hope you aren't too snowed under, but glad my husband hasn't had to drive to Hamilton to work until Saturday!

Cute, quick idea!

Heidi said...

WooHoo! Jenny and the MSQC meets MBS! How awesome! What a cute wall hanging.

Lettyb said...

This is really fun. I'd like to see it with a 'blended' colorway so that there are only subtle differences between the heart and the background - and perhaps with the heart composed of lots of different (though similar) fabrics. Thank you!

Lettyb said...

Forgot to say how much I LOVE the cheerful and fun videos you make!

Lisa said...
