Meet Star Spangled Sky our newest Moda Bake Shop project!
The gals over at Fat Quarter Shop have all the fabric you need to make the quilts. You can find it here. The gals are so generous and are giving away a jelly roll of the line to one of our readers…just keep reading and we’ll let you know how to sign up to win.
Kelli and I originally wanted to make the quilts from Minick and Simpson’s line Indigo Crossings but when we contacted Moda’s Sample room we were told we would need to pick a different fabric line as they didn’t have what we needed. We debated for a bit and reluctantly picked Paint Box Batiks. Kelli and I have never sewn with batiks and were a little hesitant. We ended up loving the experience!!
We did another new thing with this quilt too. We used a white from a different fabric line. It’s actually from PB&J. It’s called Creamy Grunge..Fat Quarter Shop has it here. The fabrics mixed very nicely.
When it came time to quilt it, I was again at a loss. Keep in mind this isn’t perfect and I am still learning but this is what I did in the white open borders.
The center of the quilt was done in a wood grain. It’s a design I learned from the Pajama Quilter. Sorry..the thread blends so much that you can’t see.
The pattern is free here at Moda Bake Shop.
The quilt finishes at 90″ x 90″.
If you would like a chance to win a jelly roll, just leave a comment here telling if you have made a project with batik fabric. We’ll pick a winner next week.
