Stars and Stripes Flag Quilt

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

I have a confession to make…I love history!  I am such a geek! I love anything to do with history I am addicted to shows such as Vikings, The Last Kingdom, Knight Fall, anything to do with the American Revolution or Civil War.  I listen to the soundtrack from Hamilton at least once a week.  When I saw the beautiful new collection by the French General, Viva Le France I could not resist creating a quilt, which could represent an American Flag. I just love how this collection provides variations of blues and reds so that I could create almost a gradient/worn effect.

Crossing the Finish Line

Our Choose Your Own Adventure quilt-along this past summer was such a fun journey for all of us here at the Moda Bake Shop. I know from our Facebook group and social media posts, that many of you out there are still sewing along. I am usually one of those who does quilt-alongs long after they’ve ended so I know how it goes! Today I thought I’d check in with our Chefs and Camp Counselors to keep you inspired – and also to show off this fun quilt-along for anyone who is looking for a new project this year.

This Year, I Will…

Do you make New Year’s resolutions? I’ve never made a formal list, but I usually have a few things in mind that I’d like to accomplish. A lot of the time, that list includes a lot of sewing projects I just never seem to get through! This year, I thought it would be fun to resolve to do some things with all of you Moda Bake Shop readers.

Let’s all do one thing each month that will help us accomplish a sewing goal or give back to others in our community. Each month, I will announce a challenge – something I personally want to tackle that month – and you can take on the same task or pick something that speaks to you. Either way, share what you are doing here on the blog, on Instgram (#odamaychallenge2019) or in our Facebook group. Let’s inspire each other and guess what? I bet the Moda fabric fairy will have some treats to make each challenge extra sweet. 😉

My challenge this month is LAYER UP. Basting is my least favorite part of quilting and they always say to tackle the hardest task first! If you have any tips for me, I’d love to hear them! Or is basting your least favorite part of quilting, too? We can form a support group.

Be sure to tag @modabakeshop and #odamaychallenge2019 so we can see your posts!

Happy 2019!

Happy New Year to all of our readers! Today we have a little gift so many of you asked for – all of the 2018 Countdown to Christmas blocks all in one file. You can download all the blocks plus the quilt label and two quilt setting ideas {here}.

We wish you all health and happiness in the New Year!
