It’s a Moda Bake Shop Day!!


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…

I am so happy… I have a project on Moda Bake Shop today!  It’s this Jelly Roll Chair Cover.

If you’re new to my blog…welcome.  I’m glad you could come to Jo’s Country Junction.  I’d love to offer you some wonderful Rhubarb Dessert or  homemade Angel Food Cake and give you a quick tour….here’s my new baby chicks,  here’s the last project I finished, here’s what I’m currently working on, here’s photos from the last quilt shop I visited, here’s my latest Accuquilt Go! project,  and here’s the quilt I started for my daughter. It’s always busy here at Jo’s Country Junction.  I’m a farm wife and mother to five mostly grown up kids.  I work from home on my early learning printables website Making Learning Fun.  I garden and quilt every chance I get…and I love working with Moda.


I designed the Jelly Roll Chair Cover to protect our new chair from our beagle, Gracie’s hair and the kids’ mishaps.   It’s really fast to make.  I made it from start to finish in one day.  As much as love quilts, it’s nice to make a few totally practical projects too.

Everyone always asks how do you get Gracie to take such good pictures.  Honestly…I lay out and quilt and she comes.  Our daughter Kalissa and I decided that we would take a little video and show you how easy Gracie makes picture taking.

My biggest difficulty is getting the photo and lighting right so Gracie doesn’t look like she has green eyes.

Here’s some specifics about the chair cover.  The fabric line is Moda’s Civil War Reunion.  It uses a jelly roll plus a big of yardage.  All the machine quilting was done on my regular sewing machine so it’s a project everyone can finish easily.

Thanks for stopping by…Head on over to Moda Bake Shop and let me know what your think?  Is there a Moda fabric line that would look good on a chair in your family room?

  1. Thank you for the great smile this morning! Gracie is too cute :) I never knew about your learning site, I have to check it out more, Ihave a 5 year old who struggles with reading. Love the tutorial. I have plaid furniture, not sure what would make it look good!

  2. Hee, it’s about as hard to take a picture of Gracie on a quilt as it is to take a picture of my kitty on a quilt! ;) It have two chairs that could use a cat hair cover – right now one is protected by an old sheet. Very attractive.

  3. what a great idea. What a great way to also change up the look of the furniture. Thanks for the tutorial.

  4. Gracie is SO adorable and very photogenic! Looks like she is a modeling pro. Love the cover you made. I have no children at home, much less a pet or messy hubby, so I’ll pass. The fabrics are wonderful.


  5. I love how Gracie looks over at the video camera when you’re trying to take her picture! Thanks for sharing :)

  6. Oh how cute! I love your video. My sister – in -law’s dog is staying at our house right now and boy did he have to bark while I watched the video. He is such a pain. I love your chair cover. I can see how it would protect our furniture from all of the dogs.

  7. oh my goodness that video was so cute! every time gracie barked, my ivy would look at me around the computer as if to ask how i got a dog inside my laptop! and i cracked up when your daughter said “she’s a dog” because i’ve heard that same tone from my daughter about my dog! hee hee hee. the chair cover is very nice.

  8. I’ve always enjoyed your blog so much because of the quilting, the Iowa connection (after 20 years in Houston, Iowa is still home), and Gracie! I think she’s the new Lassie! She’s a star!! :-)

  9. Aww, Gracie is so cute. We had a beagle, and they are such special little critters. Oh yes, and the cover is great, what a good idea! Thanks for the tute :-)
