Moda Bake Shop Day: Step Up

image_pdfimage_print

Hooray!!  It’s a Moda Bake Shop day!!  It’s a giveaway day too!  Our friends at Fat Quarter Shop have a special prize for one of our readers.  Keep reading and I’ll tell you about the giveaway soon.  First off, here’s our quilt!

StepUp-2

We are calling the quilt Step Up.  The design came to me when I was in the shower one day.  Amazingly, the shower has been where several quilt design ideas have come to me.  I wanted something simple and this was it.  All you do is sew two strips to a square…of course it’s not quite that easy…but close.   You can find the complete free pattern over at Moda Bake Shop.

StepUp-2

The quilt ended up really big, 84″ x 100″.  Kelli and I just have trouble making anything small.  You can easily make yours smaller by taking off a row.

For the quilting motif I played and played around hoping to come up with some that looked like paw prints being the fabric line is “Here Boy”.

StepUp-4
We used this fabric from the line for the backing….cute, right??


Our quilt will be donated to the Humane Society for their next fund raising event.  We hope it brings in some money to help some needy dogs.

StepUp-3
I love when simple designs come together and look cute like this quilt.

Ins and Outs: An New FREE Quilt Pattern

I told you about a month ago that we had a few projects featuring jelly rolls in the works.  So far we’ve shown you “Jimmy John” and last week’s free pattern “Meet in the Middle“.  Today we have another new quilt with free printable pattern that we’re calling “Ins and Outs”.

InsandOuts-2-1

When we made ours we used one jelly roll then pulled from our scrap bucket to provide the rest of the fabric.  The jelly roll that we started with was Blooming Fresh from Moda.  It was bright and fun, perfect for the look we were going for.

You can see why we named the quilt Ins and Outs.  The colored pieces go in and out.

I quilted it with a pastel thread in an all over edge to edge design.  I love looking at all the fun printed white fabrics.

InsandOuts-3

I found a backing piece in my stash.  It’s one I bought from the thrift store for $2.  I love it when that happens!!

This is a great pattern for you to use up scraps…LOTS of scraps.

InsandOuts-7
There are so many options for this quilt.  I can see it with all dark back grounds and light columns.  I can see it as a Quilt of Valor.  I can see it as a two color quilt.  The options are really endless.

If you’re looking for the printable pattern, you can find that HERE.

Last week we featured a free pattern.  The weather wasn’t the best that day and I didn’t have many pictures of the quilt.  I took more pictures and added them to the old post.  Head on over HERE and check them out.

You can find MANY other free patterns on our site by looking under the free patterns tab at the top of the page under our banner.  Stop by again…
