Railways



Hello fellow quilters!  I’m Emily Bailey of Aunt Em’s Quilts and I’m excited to be back baking for Moda.  This fun, easy quilt reminds me of the cross country train ride I took with my middle son, Josh.  The casual pace of this kind of travel makes it very enjoyable.  Taking time to meet your fellow travelers as we took in the beautiful scenery was delightful.  I chose April Rosenthal’s Orchard for this quilt to represent the farmland we passed as we traveled.

Ribbon Stars Quilt

Hi Bakers!  I am Lisa Jo Girodat of Neverlandstitches and am so excited to be back on Moda Bakeshop to share another new quilt pattern.

Dec 21: Wreath Star

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.
