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.

Counting Down the Days

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.

Reverse Applique Christmas Pillow

Hi fellow bakers! This is Mona from Kentucky Whittaker Creations. I’m excited to share a fun project with you today.

I started sewing about two years ago. As my experience grew, I wanted to try new things. I came across reverse applique and decided to give it a try. I made a Kentucky pillow using this technique. I loved the raw edges and since then have made several other pillows using this method.

Today, we’re going to make a Christmas pillow using the reverse-applique, raw-edge technique.

Turning Leaves Pillow

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!
