Cooking with Moda Bake Shop

 Guess what I've been working on? My first Moda Bake Shop project - and it's up today!

I used the new Chrysalis collection by Sanae.  (Remember this pile?) Some great prints.  I love Sanae. If you've been around a while, you already know my Arcadia love.

This is kind of a BIG quilt. About 84" x 84" - but it comes together really quickly for a bigger project.
The fabulous quilting on this quilt was done by my friend and co-worker at American Quilting in Orem, Utah, Becky Heslop. She did an AMAZING job. Thanks again Becky!  If you're local, the quilt is hanging at AQ right now.  And a limited number of kits will be available at American Quilting soon.
Head over to Moda Bake Shop to see the tutorial.  I would love to get your thoughts, feelings, vehement opinions, violent reactions, whatever you've got for me.

  9. I love that design! I am slooow-ly working towards a quilt of baby clothes and this would be a nice way to showcase the blocks--and to not have to make too many. I appreciate all of the tips and tutorials.

  10. My violent opinion is that I wish I was still your neighbor so that you could be my personal quilting guru. But alas . . . I'll have to settle for admiring through cyberspace. And congrats on the MBS slot! You're so worthy!

  11. Saw the MBS post before I got to your blog post today. Love it!! Already printed it. The solid you chose makes all the colors of the line pop. I just received some Chrysalis in the mail. This line is fabulous and I will definitely be ordering more. Keep up the good work!
