Be My Neighbor

We are starting a New Block of the Week called "Be My Neighbor.  Each Monday we will post a pattern for your to make this fun quilt.  I had the pleasure of testing the pattern for Moda Fabrics.  I made my quilt Using Moda "Grunge" fabrics from Basic Grey.

You can choose any fabric you like.  The quilt measures 68" x 84."  The blocks are big and fun to put together. 

We have some customers that are going to make it with scrappy, some are going to make it a Christmas quilt using a variety of Christmas fabrics.  The sky is the limit.

Here is another quilt make using a variety of different backgrounds and reproduction fabric made by my friend Tammy Mullanix Vonderschmitt

It is so fun to see the same quilt made with other  fabrics and how different they look.

You can find the free block patterns on our website  We hope you enjoy making the quilt.  The first block is now available.   We hope you will share your blocks on our facebook page or on instagram with the hashtag #ModaBeMyNeighbor.   Enjoy.

Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol. 13 Blog tour

I am so excited to have a block in this Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 13.   and to be a part of this blog tour. This is the second time I have been in magazine but my first time to be a part of the Blog tour.

My Block is called “Sherbet,” I named it that because of the colors of the fabric.  They reminded me of orange and lime sherbets. The fabric I used is “Tucker Prairie” by One Canoe Two.

When you repeat my block it makes a fun secondary pattern. 

If alternate the colors in the blocks it gives you a totally different look.

 You can win a copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Block Vol. 13. Just leave a comment and I will pick a winner on Sunday May 8th.
For even more giveaways and more chances to win a copy of the magazine be sure to check out the Quilty Pleasures Blog.  You can find links to all the other designers participating in the hop.  Good Luck.

Happy Quilting

New Classes

We have a lot of fun classes coming up this spring and summer.  While we are putting the finishing touches on the newsletter I thought I would give you a preview of upcoming classes.

"Dessert Dance" by J Michelle Watts is a fun quilt that looks difficult but in reality is pretty simple.  The original pattern has a Southwest feel to it.  I used more pastel colors for a fun springtime quilt.

"Tuffets" are very popular now and a lot of fun to make.  This is another project that looks hard but once we show you how to put it together you will want to make more.  The make fun gifts also.

"Log Jam" by Kate Colleran is a fun quilt from a new book called "75 Fun Fat Quarter Quilts"  There are a couple of differant color ways of this quilt in the book.

These are just of few of the classes we ar offering this spring and summer.  New Classes start in May and run through August.
