Hooray…It’s a Moda Bake Shop Day & 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…

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.
Thanks for stopping by…hope to see you again.

  1. Still plugging away on Orca Bay. I am upgrading my Handiquilter frame to the precision glide tracks as my Christmas present. Can’t wait for it. Have a Happy New Year, you are off to a great start.

  2. I got the rotating cutting mat and 120″ retractable tape measure that I asked Santa for. I also treated myself to a big box of sale fabrics to use throughout the year!

  3. I LOVE the FQ Shop and Moda. I am sure I am on their “hot list” as an avid purchaser. Maybe I will get lucky and get a gift certificate too!

  4. I got four quilt patterns from one of my daughters– one that I have been wanting to make for a long time– Third Weekend in October! :-) I also got some new scissors from my Mother-in-law, and a beautiful lap quilt to use while watching television from my hubby! I always love getting quilty gifts! :-) Thanks for the chance to win one more wonderful quilty gift! :-)

  5. A needle threader made by Clover that is for thicker threads like floss This looks like it is quite strong and well made and I hope it will not break as every needle threader I have ever bought has done in the past. I stand and look at them in the store and just cant bring myself to pay for something that is destined to be discarded but our local store gave it’s followers a voucher for Christmas and I found this one and decided to try one last time!

  6. I did not receive anything quilts, but I treated myself to some cute fabric and a jelly roll! Can’t wait for them to come in the mail so I can get started!! Love the swirls in your quilt.

  7. Love your quilt! I didn’t receive anything quilty but I did get a new laptop and that adds to my quilty pleasure by reading quilt blogs.

  8. $50 gift card??? For Reals??? Oh that would be better than the silly secret Santa gifts I received from my inlaws! lol Thanks for sharing the change to win!

    Happy 2012 Jo! :)

  9. From my Auntie, I got a Fiskars 14″ rotating cutting mat. i am so excited. Alas, I have to trim everythng, and I am hoping it will be easier to twirl the fabric around rather than myself!

    JO, I read your blog regularly and was so blown away by you nad your daughter’s Perkimon Dream(s). Ya’ll are so together!
    I am currently plugging away on Orca Bay, but am so far behind it isn’t funny. But this is not a race and I am not punching a time clock. This is supposed to be fun, not an added stress.

    Thanks for all you do in blog-land and quilt world, you have mnay friends and admirers.

  10. No quilty gifts this year, but my nine year old daughter received a cute little sewing machine that I will be teaching her to use! Should be a riot! Thanks for the chance to enter your giveaway.

  11. I found your blog through patchwork times. I did recieve two patterns for Christmas one was a studio kat purse pattern and the other was a quick tablerunner pattern. Thanks!

  12. I didn’t get to many presents and nothing quilty, but the day after Christmas I was blessed with a bunch of Moda fabrics . It was a $10. find at a thrift shop. So I felt like I got a really nice Christmas present.

  13. Oh boy—I am just getting back into quilting after several years away. I have been hopping around gathering inspiration from all of these blogs! I came over via your Orca Bay quilt link–LOVE IT!!!

    I did receive some wonderful quilty gifts this Christmas: a couple patterns, a set of quilting feet I needed for my machine, a quilt kit. I can’t wait to dive in!! I am trying to gather fabrics for one of the patterns, so this prize would be perfect!

  14. Well…my mom gave me four charm square sets from FQS. And my daughter found a bundle of 30 Westminster/Free Spirit fat quarters…I don’t know where…but they’re to die for! ; – )

  15. Beautiful Orca Bay quilt and love the puppy! I got a new machine, a Viking Topaz 20 for both quilting and embroidery! It does a fabulous free motion.

  16. That gift certificate would be a real prize!


  17. I think this is the first year I didn’t receive something quilty for Christmas! But I did receive a Precious Moments figurine “Mother Sew Dear” from my son. Means more to me than I can say. Love the blog and would love to win $50 from the Fat Quarter shop. Thanks for all you do!

  18. I LOVE THIS QUILT!, and will be checking out the recipe (that word always reminds me of the Waltons-showing my age:). I also will be following you – great information. FQS rocks!

  19. I did not receive anything quilty for Christmas as I have so many projects going already, my HB won’t add more until I finish a few.
    Hope you got lots of quilty things and anything else that made you happy. Have a wonderful New Year and thanks.
