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 back to the Moda Bake Shop’s Countdown to Christmas! I’m Jen Daly and I’m excited to be here again with a new block for Day 17! Candy canes and peppermint sticks were the inspiration for my cheery Christmas Candy Star block featuring a Sawtooth Star with a candy striped center made of half square triangles—sew sweet!

Hi, Everyone! Jessica Dayon- @jessicadayon– here today bringing you the tutorial for my contribution to Countdown to Christmas! This block is called Festival and I think it is stunning in red and white! I hope you like it as much as I do! Mona Bake Shop’s Countdown to Christmas has become one of my favorite things to look forward to in December! It’s like an Advent Calendar just for quilters 🙂
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.
A cloudless sky on a cold winter night is a mixed blessing here in Montana. On the one hand, there’s nothing more beautiful than our Big Sky filled with stars, and if you’re lucky, you’ll see the Northern Lights. On the other hand, without a blanket of clouds to hold in the daytime heat, nighttime temperatures can drop well below zero.
I am a proud Grandmother of five beautiful grandchildren from 14 to 2 years old. I added this block to many of their quilts. I hope that someday they will know the significance of why I placed this block in their quilts. Each of my children have a Christmas quilt with this block to snuggle under to read their favorite Christmas Eve storybook.
Hello! It’s Amanda of Pieced Just Sew and I am excited to be kicking off this year’s Countdown to Christmas! This year’s blocks will be made with a variety of red prints, solid red, and solid white and each block can be made as both a 12” block and a 6” block. Be sure to check back each day between now and Christmas for a brand new block!
Today’s block may look familiar. It is the block from my recent Country Summer quilt tutorial. However, in the spirit of this time of year, I have renamed it Country Winter! So dig into your stash, pick a couple of your favorite red prints, and let’s get started!
The most wonderful time of the year has arrived! Yes, it is time for our annual Countdown to Christmas! This year our Chefs have worked up an array of blocks in 6″ and 12″ – all made in seasonal red and white fabrics. Over here at the Moda Bake Shop, we will be using fat quarters to make our blocks but use whichever precut works the best for you.
We will have a new block each day until Christmas, plus some bonus blocks and quilt settings to keep you sewing right through the new year. Join us! Be sure to stop by our Moda Bake Shop Facebook group to see what others are sewing.
