Moda Bake Shop Day: Step Up


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.
