Hello! I’m Amanda of Pieced Just Sew and I am happy to be sharing a new quilt tutorial with you today! I love how a slight change to a traditional block can give you a whole new look. Here, one change to a traditional pinwheel block gives you a block that I think looks like a windmill. Let’s get started!
Blocks. Beach Toys. Storybooks. Secret treasures. Picnic lunch. These are just a few things that can be stuffed inside these Fast Four Fat Quarter Backpacks for kids and adults.
Welcome back Moda Bake Shop bakers! I’m Jen Daly and I’m thrilled to be here for Day 21 of the Countdown to Christmas! Today’s recipe was inspired by the beautiful evergreen wreaths that adorn so many front doors during the holiday season—mine included! My Wreath Star block features Sawtooth Star points that sparkle against a contrasting “wreath” background. I love it with the two reds, but it would also be beautiful with red star points against a green wreath. Continue reading
Welcome to Day 6 of the Moda Bake Shop Countdown to Christmas! My name is Jen Daly and I’m so happy to be here today to share my “Reindeer Games” block—so named by my daughter because of the checkerboard center. Reindeer Games is a variation on my favorite quilt block, the Sawtooth Star, and I just love how using two different red fabrics gives this block a layered, three-dimensional look.
Hi there! Halloween Candy Stars is a sweet little quilt made with one mini charm pack and a bit of yardage.
This little quilt finishes at 18″ square – perfect for a mini quilt or make it into a pillow!
Happy Fall! I am Barbara Esposito, The Quilted B, and it is so good to be back at the Moda Bake Shop. This quilt block was inspired by my mom, Mary. She was an amazing seamstress, initially out of need, but as time went on out of pure love for the craft. She won many Blue Ribbons at our state fair over the years, and no Christmas went by without matching party dresses and PJ’s for my nieces and their dolls.
Hey there! I’m Jen Daly and I’m thrilled to be back at the Moda Bake Shop today with a new Moda Candy project for fall. Turning Leaves features a variation of a Tree of Life block set on point and surrounded by a pieced border. And at 18½” square, it’s a great size to finish either as a mini quilt or as a fun pillow like mine. I made my project with Jo Morton’s “Spice It Up” collection—her beautiful and colorful prints are just perfect for fall!
Now let’s get started!
Hello, Bakers! I am here today to discuss quarter square triangles and show you two ways to construct this building block. Adding the quarter square triangle to your quilting repertoire opens up some fun piecing possibilities. One step more advanced than the ubiquitous half square triangle, the quarter square triangle (commonly abbreviated QST) consists of four right triangles that form a square.
Welcome to another Building Blocks tutorial! I’m Nicola Dodd from CakeStand Quilts and I’m so happy to be back at the Bake Shop to help you cook up some Half Rectangle Triangles.
I’m a huge fan of the Half Rectangle Triangle (lets call them HRTs or this will be a really long post!) as they add so much movement and excitement to a quilt. They are usually made with templates, but if you don’t want to invest in special rulers, or the idea of Foundation Paper Piecing brings a tear to your eye, I have two simple techniques that both use a tool you will already have: your ruler!
