Hello… Did you read title of the post? It’s a Moda Bake Shop day and a GIVEAWAY too…how fun. I always get lots of new people stopping over on Moda Bake Shop days so I thought I would give you a big warm welcome and show you around a bit. Here’s the highlights of recent happenings here at Jo’s Country Junction…I am hosting a 2012 Quilt Square Quilt Along (feel free to join us..the more the merrier!!). Here’s my latest quilt shop experience. Here’s a picture of my family….and here’s a post about the 10,000 pieced quilts my daughter Kelli and I made and gave away as Christmas presents.
Now onto the quilt…..Here’s Gracie showing the quilt Starry Terrain.
We have good friends and their son is getting married. I think the world of their son as he’s been friends with both my son and my daughter. I wanted to make Kris a quilt for a wedding present so I asked him for a color suggestion. He picked black, magenta and lime colors. I checked out Moda’s fabric lines and found Terrain. There was magenta and a green, but no black. I ended up adding a Moda Black Swirl fabric…and an orange too.
The quilt uses a layer cake and extra yardage of Terrain. The layer cake is used as the center of the stars. Terrain has been in quilt shops for a bit now so you can easily find it in stores.
You’ll have to hop on over to Moda Bake Shop and see how the blocks come together to make the lime secondary stars. I love blocks that make secondary designs…
I used a great variegated thread. It blended in beautifully. I didn’t do any fancy machine quilting…just a simple swirl.
Making the quilt was totally out of my element…I typically don’t do super bright and typically don’t do black backgrounds. It’s fun to try different styles. You can read the full instructions on how to make the quilt over at Moda Bake Shop….
And now what you are probably waiting for…the giveaway. Fat Quarter shop is being so generous.
They are giving away a $50 gift certificate for you to use at their shop. They have lots of great new Moda fabric lines in….you’ll have to hop over and check them out. Fat Quarter Shop always has great things happening on their blog. They also offer a newsletter and have a facebook page. You can follow along with their happening so many ways. If you get a chance, tell Kimberly thanks for the great giveaway….
I never tell people that they have to follow me on facebook for a chance to win, but you sure can. If you want a chance to win, just leave a comment here telling if you got anything quilty for Christmas. I’ll pick a winner on January 4th.
