Hooray, Hooray…It’s a Moda Bake Shop Day…AND a giveaway!!


If you are new to the blog, welcome.  We typically put up new blog post twice daily so there is always something new and fresh here.  We host lots of giveaways too.  Click HERE and see what’s new today…

Do you know what day it is…It’s a Moda Bake Shop day and a give away day.  What could be more fun??  You can get the free pattern for this quilt there.

When I saw the Sweetwater’s Reunion fabric line, I knew I didn’t want to miss it.  I quickly got out my doodle pad and started drawing a design.  A few tweaks here and a few there along with some number crunching and had the design for my quilt.  The quilt is large finishing at 98″ x 98″.  It’s hard to believe a quilt that is so big can be made with only two jelly rolls.

One of the things I like is that it uses all but a couple strips.

I had such a fun time sewing this one.  As I was cutting the quilt out, there right on the fabric I saw the name of my small printed.  Image my shock as our small little town only has 250 people in it!  You can read the whole story here.


I was planning that this quilt would be a wedding gift…then after I saw the town’s name, I thought maybe I would keep the quilt.

The receipts are from the same small town so maybe it would be okay…but I still like it.

  2. I am from Britton, SD and it was a great place to grow up. Population about 1500 give or take. Up until just a year or two ago we have had some one living in my great grandparents home for over 100 years. It was sad to see it get sold. I always look forward to going there for a visit. Thanks, Daisy

    My dad was in the Air Force so I never felt like I had a “hometown”. I was born in El Paso, Texas but left after a year and a half and have never been back. I have lived in Hatfield, Arkansas for 34 years and consider that my “hometown”!

  10. Oh, what a cozy quilt! First glance made me think of freckles! (I know – give that girl more coffee so she can wake up!!) What “Sweet”ness to find the name of your little town in the print! I bet you WERE just stunned! How fun! I remember making my then-boyfriend (turned hubby!) and I matching teeshirts out of a small print that had “Ford” on a reproduced newsprint knit 38 years ago!! Hard to read, but I knew it was there! Love those little treats that show themselves when we manage to read the fine print of life!

  11. I live in Cincinnati Ohio. I would love the fabric as a crazy reminder of the quilt show just here. Thanks for the chance.

  12. My home town is San Diego, what an awesome quilt the fabric makes it. My husband saw the quilt and loved it, being a country boy and sleeping under many a quilts it reminded him of his Grandmothers quilts down in Noble, LA. It would be so cool to surprise him with this quilt.

  13. My original hometown (where I was born) is Jamaica, New York. I haven’t lived there since I was an infant though.

  14. My hometown is Cincinnati. I wish I had read this before the Quilt Show; I would have stopped by . . . maybe I did and can’t remember. Talk about sensory overload!!!! I am and always will be a ‘townie’! Pick me!!!!
