Hello..and welcome to a Moda Bake Shop Day!!  Kelli and I have been busy working on baby quilts with the new fabric line Oink a Doodle Moo.  It’s all farm print fabric and oh, so cute.


When we saw the fabric we just knew we had to design something with it.  We started with a jelly roll and designed not one, not two, but THREE baby quilts all with one jelly roll..and of course some extra yardage including two panels.  The gals over at Fat Quarter Shop have all the fabric you need to make the quilts.  You can find it here.  The gals are so generous and are giving away a jelly roll of the line to one of our readers…just keep reading and we’ll let you know how to sign up to win.

As we finished each quilt we love it…

OinkaDoodle-1
Then we’d make the next quilt and would love that one more….

OinkaDoodle-2
But then see the next and wonder if it wasn’t our favorite…

OinkaDoodle-3

I just love making baby quilts.  They are so quick and easy to make quickly.  All of the directions are on Moda Bake Shop to make each of the quilts.  If you are making them cut them out in the order given.

Just last week Kelli was out doing farm chores.  Around here our guys are gearing up to get ready to do the spring farm work….that means Kelli and I will be farm widows again.  That’s okay, that means we’ll have lots of uninterrupted sewing and blogging time.  That’s good because we have lots of fun things going on next week that you won’t want to miss because they include giveaways!!

Speaking of giveaways…

  1. They are an awesome trio! Guess the great nieces and nephews all need a new cuddle blanket for the summer! Thanks for the inspiration

  2. Lol so excited by the quilts I forgot to say I spent many harvests at my grandparents and learned to drive on the old Ford tractor taking corn into the COOP one year the neighbor gave me a ewe that had twins for my birthday. Oh the memories!

  3. Marlene Murray

    I live in the country, 5 acres of wheat, 2 lonely chickens and more cats that sane person needs! But hey, no mice! Love the quilts!

  4. Valerie Boudier

    Have never lived on a farm but used to own a canal cottage with no road access – had to walk through a dairy farm to get to it

  5. Love the quilts! My daughter mentioned on Thursday that she wanted to make a quilt for a friend that is expecting her 3rd child in July. I’m going to show her these!

    I grew up on four acres in the country. A neighbor cut the hay on the property each summer in exchange for hauling it away. The man next door raised and showed Arabian horses, so beautiful! Across the street was a chicken farm where we could get fresh eggs. The properties behind ours held cows. That is as close to a farm as I ever got.

  6. I grew up on a Wisconsin dairy farm. I love the spring time with all the baby animals. I did all the farm chores from feeding, milking, and yes even cleaning the barn. Being the oldest of 8 kids, it was a great place to explore the woods and hay mows. i was a member of the local 4-H club, where I learned to sew my own clothes, and exhibited them at the county fair in hope of the blue ribbon. This is the beginning of my sewing and quilting experience. I would love to have the oink a doodle moo jelly roll, as I too would have to make some baby quilts, to pass on the memories to some great niece and nephews.

  7. I live in farm country. I don’t live on a farm but many of my friends live on one. There is such a variety here. There are dairy farms, beef farms, pig farms, chicken farms, potato farms, corn farms… The list goes on and on. Plus there are Amish farms a coupe of miles away. These are amazing to see everything that is produced there – including their wonderful quilts.

  8. Cute baby quilts! I think the second one is my favorite, but they are all great! My husband grew up on a small farm, and his brother is now a farmer. I met the family at my brother-in-law’s dairy farm, where the whole family congregated for Thanksgiving. We all went out to the barn to help with the milking (though all I really did was take care of my young nieces and let them show me their favorite cows!–I wasn’t much help, never having milked a cow before!)

  9. Great quilts!
    I was born on a farm and although my brother and his family farm the land now I have a few acres and 5 cows of my own!

  10. Congrats again! Oh my, wish I could tell you in person about my first time to my husbands families farm in KY. I’m from Bay Area, CA! One story is when Aunt Garnet said we needed to go get some potatoes. I went and grabbed my purse. Boy did every one have a great laugh. Little did I know that meant grab a shovel!

  11. Love your quilts. I did not grow up on a farm but both sets of grandparents lived on farms nearby. I was in 4-H for many years.

  12. The quilts are precious! My grandfather had a farm that I have fond memories of visiting as a child. I wish I could have given my daughters some of the same memories.

  13. Fun quilts! I’ve always wanted to live on a farm. I lived in farming country growing up. But for the moment I have chickens which I enjoy!

  14. I grew up on a farm with my family raising tobacco and my dad had milk cows. I always loved going to milking with him! What good times they were!!

  15. Grew up on the farm. My Sister & I were in charge of the garden, my 4 brothers did the farm chores each day. we helped with haying season.

  16. I love your baby quilts….hard to pick a favorite. I have lived on 2 farms in my lifetime. I was born in Hawaii and my parents owened a coffee farm….then later they moved to Ohio and now run a berry farm. .country farm life is the best.

  17. I grew up in Los Angeles near downtown. Every year a big truck would come to our elementary school bringing farm animals for us to see — chickens, cows, pigs, etc.

  18. Well, we lived on a farm but it wasn’t a working farm. Does that count? :-)
    Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  19. Love the 3 quilts – so fresh and colorful! I have never lived on a farm, but have visited and spend vacation days at a farm as a kid. May have to do it again one day… Thank you!

  20. I spent the summer when I was eight on a cousins dairy farm in Idaho. I really related to Kelli talking about feeding the calves because that was my job. I still remember putting my hand in the bucket and my fingers in the calves mouth to help teach them how to drink from the bucket.

  21. Love those quilts – what child would not cherish one of them. City or country – kids all appreciate the farm animals !!

  22. Love all three quilts. Spent time as a kid on my uncles orchard, then his dairy farm in Victoria, Australia. My husband grew up on a wheat farm and we now live on a 12 acre property which used to be a Bed & Breakfast – not quite a farm, but we do have a couple of alpacas! Our kids also love going back to the Grandparents wheat farm as often as we can to ride motor bikes and dune buggies up sand hills & gypsum pits. Thanks for the chance to win this gorgeous fabric.

  23. Those quilts are just darling! I’ve never lived on a farm but have visited a few over the years. The best thing farm related was being able to milk a cow at a county fair. Thought it was fun but after reading the schedule dairy farmers have to do I know that would never be the life for me!

  24. I grew up on a dairy/pig farm in southeastern Wisconsin with my 6 siblings. I wouldn’t want to live on a farm as an adult but it sure provided me one of the best childhoods a kid could have. Like my sister says though, “You can take the girl off the farm but you can’t take the farm out of the girl!”

  25. I grew up on a farm in NE Ohio, and have lived on the land almost all my life, except for 8 years. I live on an acreage now and have a garden and a man farms the land. In Ohio, I worked on the hay baler poking and typing wires, shoveling silage out of a 60′ silo, hauled water to range chickens in 10 gal milk cans, helped with over 1,000 laying hens and eggs, and helped with big garden.. Here in Ia. we’ve had chickens, but no more, and a big garden.

  26. I grew up on a small farm with horses. My husband grew up on a large farm. We have bought a middle sized farm! We are sheep farmers! I am so glad that my son and hopefully more child will be able to grow up on a farm rather then in town! The different experiences on a farm are so amazing!

  27. I am a dairy farmer’s wife in Pennsylvania and am blessed to help milk around 240 cows every Sunday morning! Corn planting season has begun here and soon there will be hay to mow. I love your quilts! I will definitely be headed over to Moda Bake Shop for the patterns. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  28. I love yours and Kelli’s quilts, especially the bear paw one! I have never lived on a farm but have visited a few. I always loved seeing the cows, and pigs. We use to have chickens, geese and turkeys when we lived out in the country but that was it. Thanks for the chance to win.

  29. These are sooo cute!

    I used to love to go home with my friend from school who lived on a farm. We would play in the hay barn (despite my allergies) and in the tobacco barn. I didn’t even mind (too much) picking the tobacco worms off the crops. And I loved the big farm breakfasts her mom would make, with eggs, milk and sausage coming right from their farm!

  30. I live on a farm with cows and horses and we raise and sell hay. It’s a great life for kids. They have grown up helping out and enjoying the outdoors and animals. Thanks for the sweet giveaway.

  31. Never lived on a farm but my grandpa was a farmer and my youngest daughter will be marrying a farmer on Aug. 31. My grandkids love visiting the farm!

  32. I live in farm country in a wonderful Amish town called Aaronsburg. We have a beautiful red barn and I want to paint a barn quilt on the front of it. Your quilts are darling I would like to do cute placemats with the farm squares.

  33. This fabric is sew cute. I would love to make my new grandson a quilt using this fabric. I have never lived on a farm but I have two daughter-in-laws who grew up on a farm. (I am from Iowa!) Sew this fabric would be perfect for our new grandson. Thanks for the cute giveaway and I love the quilts you made!!

  34. I grew up in the city and now live on a lake in the woods. The only time for me on a farm were field trips when my kids were in school.

  35. This fabric is sew cute. I would love to make my new grandson a quilt using this fabric. I have never lived on a farm but I have two daughter-in-laws who grew up on a farm. (I am from Iowa!) Sew this fabric would be perfect for our new grandson. Thanks for the cute giveaway and I love the quilts you made!! I will be using one if not all three of your patterns when I get some of this fabric.

  36. Great baby quilts, will be so good later on as well. Yes we were farming in the southern part of Western Australia, retired now and spend all my spare time making quilts especially baby ones at present, have 6 great grandchildren a d feel sure a few more to come. They are all wonderful . Iris Bradbury

  37. I live on a farm and have cows and horses and 4 dogs. Love the material…..would make great quilts for my grandbabies. Here in Kentucky, we almost all live on farms. Perfect!

  38. I’m a transplanted city girl living on a farm for many years. The quilts are ADORABLE! Thanks for the chance to win.

  39. Great quilts. It would be hard to choose just one. Not only have I lived on a farm but I’ve also run the big red tractor to plant the soy beans. That’s been a few years ago but always a good memory. Thanks for the opportunity.

  40. The house I grew up in was a former dairy farm,however my father was a telephoneman. But he grew all our vegetables, including the whole years worth of potatoes and beans. Plus we had almost a half acre of raspberry bushes which we picked and sold. (our cut was 25 cents we saved up to go to the exhibition) We were all 4-Hers and I even learned how to judge calves (came first). Alas, I married a city boy and he dragged me off to the paved streets and neighbours you can almost touch.

  42. Fun baby quilts; perfect use of this fabric line. I’ve never lived on a farm. My uncle had a dairy farm and I did visit there several times a year while growing up. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

  43. I have never lived on a farm, although I visited friends who did. The closest we get now is visiting a local farmstead and picking up eggs from a friend’s henhouse.

  44. I have never lived on a farm, although I visited friends who did. The closest we get now is visiting a local farmstead and picking up eggs from a friend’s henhouse. Thanks for the raffle.

  45. The quilts are adorable. I grew up in NY City, but when I was in my 30s my husband and I moved to NJ. We lived in a townhouse condo development that bordered on a working farm. When my windows were open, I could hear the bull snorting. There were many farms in the area when we moved in, but they were gradually replaced by houses.

  46. I live basically surrounded by a large ranch that runs a cow/calf operation. We really don’t have farms, as such, in my high mountain valley, but I enjoy watching the newborn calves out my window (some are enjoying ‘breakfast’ right now).

  47. I have never lived on a farm, but when the wind is blowing right, I can hear (and smell) cows from the farm near us, and on a breezy spring day like today, if you sit in our front porch, the dust blowing off the cornfield across the street gets in your face. I would love to have a hobby farm someday. Just need to convince the Mister!

  49. Grew up on an acreage. We raised ponies for sale, but on occasion had geese, guinea hens, and turkeys. But grandmother and lots of relatives were farmers. Great memories, especially when they thrashed oats at my grandmothers. That really makes me sound old doesn’t it!

  50. I have never lived on a farm but have visited many. Just love the smell of hay.
    Would love to make some quilts with the new fabric line.

  51. Sandra Timmons

    I never lived on a farm. My mom had a cow named Kypo growing up. Never did quite understand why but she did. We did have a dog and a cat. But, no farm. I love animals and I have a cat of my own. Not only one, or two but all three of your baby quilts are so darn cute that I want one for me. I would have to try and win that jelly roll, thought. Thank you for the fun Moda Quilt and giving all of us, your followers, a chance to win.

  52. Beautiful quilts. Loved the fabric when it came out but needed some inspiration on what to make with it. I love to make baby quilts. Now I have the ideas would love the chance to win some fabric to get started. I grew up on a farm helping Dad with the cattle and haying. Then I married a farmer and learned to do even more with the row crop side. Cattle and haying are still my favorites we have two grown sons who have taken over my duties but I still get to help with the cattle and hay on occasion but now I have more time to quilt. Thanks for the chance to win.

  53. I was born on a farm ~ literally. In the middle of a blizzard on December 2, the doctor could not make it thru the snow, so my grandmother delivered me! Half of my 9 sisters and brothers were also born on a farm before we moved to the city. I spent every summer on my grandparent’s farm until I was in high school and got my first job. Such cute fabric and patterns. Thanks for the chance to win!

  54. I grew up on a farm, we didn’t have farm animals growing up though just lots of corn and potatoes. We have chickens and horses now and I am trying to talk my hubby into goats. :-)

  55. My friend Farmer Charlie has a farmette and he brings me fresh eggs every week! They also have goats, sheep and a llama. All of your quilts are darling!

  56. So fun! Each quilt is adorable! Great job!
    I worked on a farm each summer while going through university…best time of my life!
    I always wished to marry a farmer as I loved that lifestyle, but never found one :(

  57. we love farms! We have chickens and ducks and wish we could have more. Our favorite vacation is to a B&B on a farm. I would love to own an old farmhouse and a couple of acres.

  58. I was a city girl and my husband grew up on 600 acres in Northeastern Oklahoma. They raised cattle and crop. They also had sheep and chickens. I remember my father-in-law bringing a newborn calf in the house to warm it up after a blizzard. I love the fabric and can’t wait to make a quilt from it. All the patterns are darling and it will be hard to choose which one to make. Thank you for the chance.

  59. Cute, cute, cute! Yes, I grew up on a vary small farm, only 30 acres, and now live in the ‘burbs. I miss the farm – and the space and the animals….

  60. I always lived in the city but always thought I would like living on a farm. I love the smell of fresh plowed earth. I ad an uncle who had a farm andI loved going to visit him and help with the cows and gather eggs. It was such an adventure. I know it’s hard work but you can see the rewards.

  61. Grew up on a farm. . .HATED watering down the pigs in the middle of the summer heat and TRULY HATED walking the garden hose in the frozen nights. Loved the baby pigs and calves. My sisters and I would have gizzard cleaning contests on chicken when it was time to butcher.
    I love the baby quilts the two of you designed, and love the glimpses of farm life you share with us in your blog.

  62. What a great trio of baby quilts! I have so many baby quilts to make right now, I was needing some ideas. Thanks for the inspiration.

  63. These baby quilts are bright and adorable! My grandparents had a farm in Upper Michigan we visited each year. So many memories… getting sticky and hot picking wild blueberries, sitting on a little stool to milk the cow, cooling off in the root cellar that was packed with jars of home canned preserves and vegetables. Now I’m a city girl but I’d move to a farm in a heartbeat!

  64. I grew up in the city but all my relatives and my grandparents were are farms in the Palouse area of Washington so I had lots of exposure to farming and still love going down there to visit.

    I love both baby quilts and am always looking for new baby quilt patterns. Thank you so much.

  65. Love these quilts!! They are too cute!! I have never lived on a farm but we visit my husbands family farm at least once a week! Thanks for the chance to win!

  66. I have never lived on a farm but had an aunt and uncle who did. They didn’t live too far out of the city where we lived. I especially loved corn on the cob time … you could phone out to see if they had any and if they did we would drive out; pick up our corn; come home and cook it and eat it. I have been spoiled by that experience. Luckily we have farms close at hand that sell their corn at roadside stands. Love your blog … keep up the good work Jo and Kelli.

  67. Sharon Judkins

    I love this fabric. It sure would make a cute baby quilt (or two, or three!). I have never lived on a farm but have visited many times. My mom’s family were tobacco farmers in Georgia and I spent a lot of time there as a kid.

  68. So, so cute! I was raised on a farm, moved away, and 30 years later, remarried to a farmer, so I’m back where I belong! I owe three baby quilts to new great niece and nephews – would love to make these as a reminder of their farm roots!

  69. I was raised in New York City; so I guess it’s obvious that I never lived on a farm. Growing up, I never saw a farm. in my lifetime, so far, I visited a farm just once. We volunteered to help do some work for a farmer in need. We were taught about “cow tipping” and stepped in our first “cow patty!” It was definitely a new experience for us!

  70. I love the quilts!! I grew up on a farm; springtime was my favorite — loved the lambs, and letting the cattle out to pasture in the spring! I always enjoy the glimpses of farming on your blog!

  71. Joyce Mitchell

    Love the fabric – love the baby quilts. I was born on a farm but not raised there. I’m an Army brat but we came back to visit often. When we were stationed close by, I got to spend a week or two during the summer on the farm. It was wonderful. Thanks.

  72. Live in the country now, but not a farm……just rural life. My grandmother had a farm….many memories of playing on the farm & especially in the chicken coop….ugh!

  73. I live on a dry land wheat farm in Washington State. For over forty years I have done it all from driving tractor, combine and also the record keeping. I would not have it any other way. The three quilts are so cute.

  74. I’ve lived in the country, but never on a farm. However, my boyfriend worked on a dairy farm and would come and pick me up for a date in his fragrant car (perfumed by his work boots) – Phew! I married him anyway.

    Would love to make one of these quilts for my first grandchild (a boy), who will be arriving in just a few weeks!

  75. Those quilts are adorable, and so easy. Thanks very much for the patterns and the opportunity.
    I am not a farm girl, never lived on one but have certainly visited one and also enjoyed the many agricultural exhibitions that take place in NS.

  76. I am an Iowa farm girl. Grew up on a farm, moved to town and for the last 20 years have been back in the country. Country is the only place to live. This fabric is as cute as can be and I would love to win it.

  77. My grandpa was a farmer in Arkansas. My Dad grew up on the farm. I have many precious memories of the time we spent on vacations visiting! Thank you for the opportunity to win the jelly roll!! These quilts are adorable!!

  78. I have lived in northeast Iowa most of my life and can’t think of a better place to live. I married a man that grew up on a farm. Both of my parents grew up on farms. I have many great memories of farm life as my dad started his married life farming with his dad. I spent many hours on the farm with my grandparents. My husband works with farmers as a loan officer with Farm Credit Services of America. It is farmers that make the world go round!!!
    I love the fabric and would be tickled to win it.

  79. You are right, majorly cute quilts! I have relatives in SC and when I visited them in the summer when I was young they didn’t have a full-ledged farm but did keep chickens and hogs on their property and grew a few vegetables on a large plot which I got to help harvest. I remember us scraping our plates into the slop bucket after eating and when full, having to take it out to the pen to put in the trough to feed the hogs (and am still amazed how big they were!!). I loved watching the chickens run around their pen and don’t remember seeing the eggs collected but assume the ones we ate for breakfast came from them. My uncle (my mother’s brother) saw a chicken slaughtered (neck rung and head cut off) for food as a kid and to this day does not eat chicken!

    So I guess that makes me a city slicker with farm roots!!

  80. I lived on a farm while in High school, but it was an unusual farm with peacocks, goats, chickens, emus, ostriches,a couple sheep, one llama that was in love with me, and many, many bunnies. Later I rented a room from a corn/pumpkin farmer and his family and worked for them as well.

    I like the way you incorporated a fussy cut block in with a design, it would work for many lines I think.

  81. Hi. I have never lived on a farm. We lived in Saskatchewan for one summer and we visited some family friends who had a farm. I remember they had a big rope you could swing down from the hay loft on but I was too scared to try it. (I was 10) The boys would swing down and swing right out the barn door. And they had a huge tall swing in the yard that I did try but it went up so high that I was scared half to death on that too. We had SO MUCH FUN out there though.

  82. Never lived on a farm. I have great memories of visiting a dairy farm that also sold ice cream! It was the best ice cream ever! The quilts that you made remind me of when my son was a baby…we decorated his room in a farm theme. He’s 18 now…the farm room was about 5 houses ago and now, just a fond memory!

  83. I have never lived on a farm, however, my husband grew up on a farm in Texas. He and his family would farm rice and corn. They have some very interesting stories to tell!

  84. I don’t live on a farm but I grew up in a small farming town and saw lots of orchards, vineyards, cotton fields, and huge fields of vegetables and plants of every kind. I don’t know much about animals on the farm but I can tell you that wet turkeys on the turkey farm near us smelled to high heaven when the wind blew just right and that when the temperatures dip to below freezing in the central valley of California that everyone gets worried as the crops could freeze. I know that late summer rains after the grapes are picked and laid down to dry in the sun cause worry as you don’t want to loose your raisin crop. I know that farmers work hard day in and day out and for that I am very grateful as I eat my daily meals. So thank you for being part of the wonderful, hard working group of American Farmers.

  85. I have never lived on a farm, but did have a farmer boyfriend for 3 years; so I have ridden the combine, swather, and grain truck. No animals though!
