It’s been awhile (like a year) since I made my last quilt pattern for Moda Bake Shop. Today my latest pattern and tutorial, Modern Cogs, went live. This quilt is a FAST, one that uses BIG 16″ blocks to pack a punch. They go together quickly and showcase fabric beautifully. I loooooove tiny blocks and tiny pieces, but for some fabrics they are just meant to be shown in larger sections for the full effect. Ombre Confetti Metallic is definitely one that is fun to see in larger chunks. Modern Cogs finishes at 96″ square and is a great bed sized quilt with lots of movement. For the pattern and more details, head over to Moda Bake Shop.
Elizabeth Hartman. THE master of adorable animal quilts. This Bunny quilt has been on my list since it came out a few years ago. I knew I didn’t have the accuracy I needed to pull it off when it came out, but when Rhonda of Olie and Evie asked if I’d curate a bundle to make this adorable quilt, I knew it was time! I chose solids for the bunny heads and adorable, tiny prints for the ears. This quilt is such a fun one to make. There are many steps, but the instructions are soooooo easy to follow. If you are interested in the fabrics to make this quilt, get in touch with Rhonda and she can help you out! We look forward to having this in our home for Easter season for years to come, as long as my 2 year old doesn’t claim it for his bed first. He sure loves bunnies!
Ann of Stitch Supply Co. approached me at the end of last year asking if I’d be willing to make a shop sample for her out of V and Co’s Ombre Metallic Confetti fabric. I could not say no. This fabric is just magical, as was the original Ombre fabric. Ann picked Vanessa’s Rising Star quilt pattern and I got to work cutting and cutting and cutting and cutting. There are A LOT of pieces in this quilt, but the end result is so amazing it is so worth it. Each larger star finishes at 8″ and each tiny inside star is just 4″. These pieces were small, even for someone who coined the hashtag #holdmeclosertinypieces. 🙂 It is hanging in Ann’s shop for a few months and then I have the task of figuring out how to quilt it! Isn’t it a stunner???
