Dec 6: Reindeer Games

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.

Dec 2: Grandmother

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.

Dec 1: Country Winter

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!

Stars Around Quilt

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.

A Thousand Good Wishes Quilt

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.
