Caroling Quilt

Hi, Everyone!  It is Jessica Dayon (@jessicadayon) here today and I’m here to share with you my new layer cake pattern!  I love buying layer cakes!  Sometimes I have a tendency to hold on to them though because I don’t know exactly what pattern to use for them.  Because of that, I am ALWAYS looking out for new layer cake patterns.  I often want to see how big I can make a quilt while only using one layer cake 😉

This quilt is very simple and only uses one block (with the fabric laid out differently to make 2 blocks).  I find that I come back to this block over and over.  I really love it and it’s really versatile.  This quilt is fast and fun.  It uses only one layer cake (plus background and some accent fabric) and its pretty big, finishing at 86″ x 86″.

Let’s get started with the pattern!

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.

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! Continue reading

Prairie Rose Garden Remix!

Hello! Sarah from Cedar Fork Stitches, back again with a fun “remix” of an old favorite Bake Shop recipe from 2015, Prairie Rose Garden!   I have made several versions of this quilt, but never with solids, so I jumped at the chance to remake this pattern using all beautiful Bella Solids!  As it turns out, I was able to make 2 distinct versions of the design, one with 2 colors per block, and the other more like the original, with 3 colors and a uniform “background”.  So join me as I explore two fun ways to “remix” Prairie Rose Garden!

Summer Sneak

Ocean breezes, waves crashing, and sand beneath your toes! This summer we are headed to the seashore with an ocean themed quilt-along! We will start on June 3 with fabric requirements and end on August 26 with quilt reveals and one last “bonus” block that we like to use for the quilt label.

If you haven’t sewn along with us in the summer yet, you can take a look at what we made at summer camp last year. Visit Instagram and check out the #chooseyourownadventureQAL tag. Our camp counselors really created a fun experience and everyone ended up with a totally unique quilt! You can find all of those blocks {here on the blog}.

This summer will be similar but also different. We will have lots of options but you will choose your quilt setting ahead of time so the final layout won’t be a mystery. We have a little over a month to go before we start so poke through your stash or hit up your favorite quilt shop to find that fabulous fabric that will inspire your summer sewing.

We absolutely can’t wait!

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.

Starlite Quilt

Hi, Bakers! I’m Heather Long of Coffee and Quilts and I’m thrilled to be sharing another quilt here at the Moda Bake Shop. This is my Starlite quilt, shown here in Nova fabrics by Basic Grey. A jelly roll and some background fabric combine to make these quick blocks. The light fabric in the half-square triangles reminded me of stars in the night sky. My mother-in-law thinks they look like butterflies fluttering across the quilt.
