Hello…It’s a Moda Bake Day!  I am so excited.  I always get lots of new visitors on Moda Bake Shop days…I feel like I should take a moment to introduce myself for those of you who are new here.  I’m Jo and I live here at the Junction.  I love to cook, sew and garden.  If you were here in person, on a tour, I’d show you the latest quilt I finished.  I’d offer you a piece of Blueberry Sour Cream Pie.  I’d give you a taste of fresh kale from my garden and tell you the latest adventures of my beagle Gracie….I love blogging and add a post almost every day, but you’re here to see the quilt…so on with the quilt.

Here’s my latest project 1934 Nine Patch.  It is made with Moda’s fabric line Circa 1934 which is scheduled to be in stores next month.  I love the line…the colors are great…very creamy and rich.

I have often heard people make comments about “not liking the solid colors in a fabric line”.  I decided to embrace the solid colors in the fabric line and design the quilt around those solid colors.  This particular fabric line has the solid red, gold, cream and green.  I didn’t use the green but if you are a “green gal”, you could easily use the green for one of the colors instead.

The quilt is made up of two different nine patch blocks, the gold/cream and the red with the printed fabric.  It’s an easy quilt to make if you are new to quilting and nine patch blocks are one of the easiest blocks there are to make.  If you are an “old hand” at quilting, this would be a quick project you.

The quilt uses a jelly roll precut for the red nine patch blocks giving each block a little dose of color.

I am totally in love with the backing fabric….

I just used a simple quilting.  I would have loved to do straight line quilting but my machine doesn’t do that the best and I am not patient enough to do it on my regular machine.

Gracie was feeling a little sad when I snapped this picture…
I love how those black blocks POP!

I picked a black polka dot for the binding….making those black blocks POP even more.
