Cacti Quilt

Hey, fellow bakers!  Emily here, from Aunt Em’s Quilts, happy to be back and sharing another fun quilt.  I’m a desert girl.  I grew up in the second driest state in the union.  I tried a stent in the Northwest, and while it was beautiful, I missed the sun.  So I’m back in the desert.   This project draws it’s inspiration from that sunny desert I love.  Nothing says desert like a cactus.  This project combines pairs of layer cake and charm squares to form cactus blocks. The bright happy colors of Zen Chic’s Spotted line made for some great cacti.

Mary’s Go Round Quilt

Happy Fall!  I am Barbara Esposito, The Quilted B, and it is so good to be back at the Moda Bake Shop.  This quilt block was inspired by my mom, Mary.  She was an amazing seamstress, initially out of need, but as time went on out of pure love for the craft.  She won many Blue Ribbons at our state fair over the years, and no Christmas went by without matching party dresses and PJ’s for my nieces and their dolls.

One step more advanced than the ubiquitous half square triangle, the quarter square triangle (commonly abbreviated QST) consists of four right triangles that form a square.
