Sweet Diamonds Baby Quilt

Hi, Everyone!  Jessica of Skein and Hook, here.  Today I’m so excited to share a new quilt that I’ve designed!  Because it is set on point, it looks more difficult than it is and it turns out so beautifully.  If you have never made an on point quilt before, give this a try, you will be so happy you did!

Christmas 1968 Quilt

After I finished one of my last years Moda Bake Shop projects ”On Point Baby quilt”, the wheels started turning with more possibilities with this basic technique.  I love on point quilts, but really don’t like making quilts with assembly on the diagonal, setting triangles, etc.  My favorite part of quilt making is the top assembly, so I like to make it as simple (fun) as possible.  So, this quilt is also made with two large pieced ‘blocks’, cut on the diagonal, then reassembled into the final quilt top with on point blocks.  You can choose to fussy cut the center blocks or not, it is really up to you!  When I saw Swell Christmas popping up on blogs and social media here and there, it just brought me back to childhood Christmas memories and my grandparents.  I knew I had to make a quilt with this fabric!

Step Down Quilt

Hello all!

I’m thrilled to be back at the Bakeshop, baking up a quick layer cake quilt of the fabulous Moda Grunge Dots!  This is a project for when you need a quick finish – think a birthday gift for a preschooler who has outgrown their baby blanket, or when you remember that you said you’d donate a quilt for the school auction that’s next week and you haven’t actually started it yet.  It goes together quickly and with the great options for layer cakes, it’s a fun and fast finish!
