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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Hi there fellow Moda Bake Shop Bakers! This is Lisa Jo Girodat of Neverlandstitches and I thrilled to join you as one of the newest chefs!
I have been sewing and making quilts for over 30 years. I started designing my own quilts,again about 2 years ago. About a year ago I decided to make a medallion quilt for a very special family member as a Christmas gift and I was hooked (or addicted – lol). This summer was such a joy as so many of us sewed along with Camp Oda May’s Choose Your Own Adventure, therefore I wanted to create another medallion quilt to remind us as the dreary winter nights ascend upon us to keep our Stars Around us shining brightly.
This generous throw sized quilt is perfect for snuggling under with a loved one. A thousand pyramid quilt is a great choice for winter fabrics as the triangles bring to mind a forest of trees. This version makes use of the light fabrics for the background triangles and dark for the focal triangles. There are also three larger triangles formed using the darker fabrics for more visual interest.
Hi everyone, I’m excited to share instructions for a medallion quilt. I’ve never designed one before, and it’s been fun to use so many different blocks and techniques in one quilt. But before I get to that, I have an incredible giveaway of fat quarters that will make it’s way to one of you!
