Simple Stack Quilt

Hi Moda Bake Shop Friends! I’m Melanie from A Bit of Scrap Stuff  and I’m so excited to share a new Moda Bake Shop Project! When I saw the gorgeous Nova fabric designed by Basic Grey – I knew it would be perfect for Simple Stack Quilt. I wanted to keep the gorgeous Nova fabric pieces large- some fabric just can’t be cut tiny! Simple Stack is a beginner friendly pattern that showcases these Nova beautiful prints!  Simple Stack uses (1) Charm Pack and (1) Layer Cake – my favorite pre-cut! I’m ready to sew this quilt again – luckily I have quite the collection of Charm Packs and Layer Cakes :). Let’s get quilting!

PS – For the backing, I chose my favorite print – the large navy floral! It is soooooo gorgeous!
