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…

Hello…It’s a Moda Bake Day!  I am so excited.  I always get lots of new visitors on Moda Bake Shop days…I feel like I should take a moment to introduce myself for those of you who are new here.  I’m Jo and I live here at the Junction.  I love to cook, sew and garden.  If you were here in person, on a tour, I’d show you the latest quilt I finished.  I’d offer you a piece of Blueberry Sour Cream Pie.  I’d give you a taste of fresh kale from my garden and tell you the latest adventures of my beagle Gracie….I love blogging and add a post almost every day, but you’re here to see the quilt…so on with the quilt.

Here’s my latest project 1934 Nine Patch.  It is made with Moda’s fabric line Circa 1934 which is scheduled to be in stores next month.  I love the line…the colors are great…very creamy and rich.


I have often heard people make comments about “not liking the solid colors in a fabric line”.  I decided to embrace the solid colors in the fabric line and design the quilt around those solid colors.  This particular fabric line has the solid red, gold, cream and green.  I didn’t use the green but if you are a “green gal”, you could easily use the green for one of the colors instead.

The quilt is made up of two different nine patch blocks, the gold/cream and the red with the printed fabric.  It’s an easy quilt to make if you are new to quilting and nine patch blocks are one of the easiest blocks there are to make.  If you are an “old hand” at quilting, this would be a quick project you.

The quilt uses a jelly roll precut for the red nine patch blocks giving each block a little dose of color.

I am totally in love with the backing fabric….


I just used a simple quilting.  I would have loved to do straight line quilting but my machine doesn’t do that the best and I am not patient enough to do it on my regular machine.


Gracie was feeling a little sad when I snapped this picture…
I love how those black blocks POP!


I picked a black polka dot for the binding….making those black blocks POP even more.


To see more pictures and to read the directions, head on over to Moda Bake Shop.  Leave a comment there and let me know what you think.

Here’s some more fun news…Kimberly from the Fat Quarter Shop is offering a $25 gift certificate to one of my readers.

We don’t want to make you jump through a bunch of hoops to be entered.  We both value your time.  You don’t have to like Jo’s Country Junction or Fat Quarter Shop on Facebook.  You don’t have to subscribe to Jo’s Country Junction or to the “Jolly Jabber” (Fat Quarter Shop’s blog)….but you sure can, we both would love to have more company.

Just leave a comment here…tell us what you’d love to use the gift certificate on…what fabric, notions, or patterns are you dreaming about ordering from the Fat Quarter Shop?  I think I would like to some of the Dottie Moda fabric…who can resist polka dots?!?!?   I’ll pick a winner on Friday…THIS Giveaway is CLOSED.  A winner has been selected.

  1. What would I use a gift certificate on?? Why, fabric of course, and I know it would be tough to make a decision as to exactly what fabric/s I’d get. But, that’s part of the fun isn’t it?

  2. I LOVE your quilt! The nine patch was the first quilt block I learned–and it is still one of my favorites. I would use the gift certificate for the Veranda Roll Up fat quarters bundle which is due at the Fat Quarter Shop sometime in August. The color combinations are just TOO yummy!

  3. Really like the nine patch quilt you did for the Moda Bake Shop.
    I would purchase Flurry or Grace fabric if I won from the FatQuarterShop. Thanks for the giveaway.

  4. I love everything at the Fat Quarter Shop!!! As Civil War era fabrics are my favorite, I am sure that I would buy something yummy from all of her great choices of those types of fabric!

  5. I’m a real fan of nine patches. I love your fabric choice for this quilt. Like you, I think the black really makes an impact. Great project and thanks for sharing. Kathie L in Allentown

  6. Well, first of all, I love your quilt. It has a great old-fashioned feeling. I would probably use the gift certificate for some Annie’s Farmstand fabric. I think I am going to jump into the Farmer’s Wife, and those fabrics would be perfect!

  7. I’m new to your blog…thanks for making me feel so welcome…I’ll be coming back! If I won, I would choose fabric…I’m always looking for stuff to make great new purses. I have my eye on Botanika by Paula Prass, but would like to shop around for a while. I’d probably find something floral I just have to have!

  8. I can’t imagine your quilt in any other fabric. It is just beautiful. The cream and gold in this fabric line are breathtaking together. Were I so fortunate to win, I’d order the two solids – cream and gold – just to be able to gaze upon them together!

  9. I love your quilt. I love 30’s fabric and this is such a great way to show it off. I also love nine patches!! If I won I would use the gift cert to help pay for the Rachel Griffith fat quarter pack. I love all of the colors and the way they go together. Thank you.

  10. anything french general would be my choice! also, i think i’m in love with that backing fabric. would love to have that too!

  11. I just began following your blog within the last week and I would love to put the certificate to use purchasing some of Moda’s Charm Packs! You have me very anxious to try a disappearing 9 patch and it looks fairly easy for a newbie!!

  12. I would finally get some of the Dr. Suess fabric I’ve been wanting. I think. Fat Quarter Shop is a real candy store for me. Thanks.

  13. I’m loving this quilt and I think it could challenge me to use solids. PS thanks for linking up at the Moda Bank Shop because this is how I found you! I’m now a new follower (via RSS feed).

    The Fat Quarter Shop is one of my favorite online stores. It’s INSANE! So tough to choose what you want and better yet, need. I’m loving all the Bright Owl by Alice Kennedy, Baby Checks Color Basics, Moonlight Minnie Dots, Sunny Minnie Dots, Petite Petite Dots Fat Quarter bundles. Now, do you see my dilemma? LOL. :-)

  14. Hi Jo, All of our pie is gone, too! Your quilt is inspiration for me to use that new Accuquilt GO – and if I’m selected to win the gift certificate, I will definitely use it to purchase Kansas Troubles’ “Cattails and Clover” when it comes out in November. The blues are ‘delicious’!!

  15. Red is one of my favorite colors…..I would love to make a nine patch quilt. I think I would put this on supplies toward this quilt.

  16. I’d buy some French General fabric. But, who knows, after lots of looking at FQS site I just might chance my mind–quilters are known to do that.

  17. Sandra Timmons

    I just loved your 9 patch quilt tutorial and the rich creamy colors. I would love to make this quilt. I also could make the quilt using Moda fat quarters in Christmas print. I am really existed when I saw this on Moda Bake Shop this morning. Can’t wait to order the fabric. Thank you for the giveway.

  18. I’m a quilting newbie so I’d use that gift certificate to build my stash! The Annie’s Farm Stand line by Lakehouse is totally calling my name :) Thanks for sharing your inspiration, great instructions and a giveaway.

  19. Your new quilt is fabulous! How do you get so much done?
    I have been wanting some of the new Hometown fabric by Sweetwater.

  20. Pingback: It’s a Moda Bake Shop Day and a Giveaway! | She Who Dies With The Most Fabric Wins |

  21. I love polka dots in quilts. Working with fabrics I find Polka dots to be a great fabric addition because it has a pattern, but further away it reads like a solid. I love the solids in the quilt and with tiny pieces, the solids add the perfect punch.

  22. Wow! great giveaway. If I won it would be a hard decision between Circa 1934 (been wating on this one) or Hometown by Sweetwater. Love your nine patch and the black and white polka dots…got to get some.

  23. If I won I would love to get some of the new marking pens for quilting which can be removed by ironing over them.

  24. What a great giveaway! If I could hold onto the gift certificate long enough :) I love the new Fig Tree line due in October – Butterscotch & Roses. Or more likely I would get some Kate Spain – Terrain right away! Thanks for the this great opportunity!

  25. I would choose either Desert Springs batik FQ bundle or Amelia layer cake. The Desert Springs bundle colors are so restful, and I love batiks…but I will be making my niece a lap quilt for Christmas and the Amelia colors would be perfect for the pattern I have in mind. Thanks for the chance to win!

  26. Love the quilt Jo!
    I would love some of the new fabric(American Banner Rose) by Minick and Simpson. I also love the Little Rascal line and Hometown. I could go on and on and on…..

  27. Your quilt is great! If I won the gift certificate, I would get the 10″ Twister ruler and some fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

  28. Jo I love your 1934 quilt! Polka dots are my new favorite. I would use the $25. on some baby friendly charm packs, I’m going to be a grandma in January!

  29. I love everything Nancy Halvorsen especially the Sour Grape Bittersweet collection. And I agree with solids aren’t used enough. They can be used to great advantage, as observed in antique quilts – or ones like Jo made to rekindle the appreciation of the vintage. :-)

  30. I love the Sour Grape Bittersweet line by Nancy Halvorsen. I really like all the solids you used, it’s a beautiful quilt.

  31. Cindy Dickinson

    I think I would choose a beautiful jelly roll in one of the new lines. It would be such a treat! I love your 9-patch quilt. Great combination of solids and prints!

  32. Oh boy, that is a trick question for sure!!
    There are so many delicious collections!! I’d have to use the $25.00 gift certificate on the 1934 collection, those are just my colors, plus I’d have to spend a little extra on a pattern, and some rick rack….rick rack rocks!! Pick me, pick me *hear the whine*??

  33. Love your site, your quilts and the Fat Quarter Shop. If I won, I would buy anything Moda and put it to good use.

    Thank you!

  34. I’m a huge fan of Bonnie Hunter, but I’m also a huge fan of Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosies Quilt Co. I see some more patterns of Carrie’s that I would like to have so that’s what I would spend the gift certificate on. By the way, I love the new Moda Bake Shop project. Simple pattern but it makes you say “WOW” when it’s done :o)

  35. Elizabeth McDonald

    CONGRATS on this quilt! You have managed to make it look timeless (not to mention lovely!) which is no small feat! If I won the gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop, I would head right for the pre-cuts! Fat Quarter Shop has the BEST selection of pre-cuts on the web!

  36. Jo, I’m a regular follower and I love seeing what you are up to! Thanks for sharing. If I won the gift certificate, I’d like to purchase some Whimsy from Anka’s Treasures (when it ararives). Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

  37. Your 9 patch quilt is simply stunning! It looks old, while having a “modern” feeling at the same time.
    If I was so lucky as to win a gc from FQS, I would have a hard time picking something. FQS is one of my fav quilting websites. I would probably pick the “Grouchy Ladybug” cause their are a few babies due at the end of the year.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win! Love your site also…

  38. LOVE this quilt. I’d use the gift certificate to buy fabric for this quilt. I even went to the Fat Quarter shop to buy it, and can’t get the yardage yet.

  39. Lovely pattern ! I like using jelly roll !
    If I win …. I pick some fat quarters of “happy mochi yum yum” fabrics ,,,
    Thank you for the giveaway !

  40. Deborah in Atlanta

    If I won, I’d let my longarm quilter pick what she’d like for a gift. She’s been so help, patient and understanding as I’m going through all my learning curves in the land of quilt-making. She deserves a thank-you gift, and what a nice way to do it. This way she can pick her own gift.

  41. I just placed an order with The Fat Quarter shop during their anniversary sale but still had stuff on my wish list, so I would LOVE to win the gift card. I love following your blog and seeing all your beautiful quilts but really love seeing Gracie! I am a Beagle fan from way back!!

  42. Oooh fun! Well, my mother is in love with the Children at Play line – so I might be a good daughter and get her some of that. Although I am sorely tempted to be selfish and pick up Rachel Griffith’s Blogger’s Choice bundle… !! P.S. LOVE your 9-Patch quilt on Moda Bake Shop. LOVE IT! Gonna have to make one. soon.

  43. Hi! This is my first comment on your site, so I’m a tidge intimidated :D I would use the gift certificate to purchase more polka dot fabrics to add to my stash. I have been collecting for over a year and never knew what to do with them until I saw a photo of the Disappearing Nine Patch on your website, the one where you used a brown for the center block and then turned all the blocks the same way for a sashing and cornerstone effect. I’ve started the quilt, which I’ve named 9-Patch Dotty and I can’t wait to see how it turns out. Thanks for this opportunity!

  44. Lovely quilt. I love the fabric you’ve used for backing. If I was lucky enough to win I’d buy myself a layer cake. Not sure which one yet. I’ve never had one before. Thanks for the chance.

  45. Richelle in TX

    Love the quilt! Hmmm, I don’t know of anything in particular I would get – maybe just some charm pack of something fun.

  46. Love that backing!!!
    thanks for the chance to win, I would love to use that $$ on a bag kit. Can never have too many bags :)

  47. Yes, I would love some of the polka dot too….or maybe I’ll pick some stripes, or plaids, or flower fabric….just too many choices! Thanks for the tutorial…I have some solids that would work well with this pattern; will have to dig them out!

  48. I love your quilt, and I’m with you those black blocks rock. I would love to get some of the pre-cuts over at Fat Quarter Shop. They have the best selection.

  49. Love your quilt and blog and Fat Quarter Shop! I would use that gift certificate for just about anything Moda! Thank you for the chance to win.

  50. I’d use it for Kaffe Fassett…or a batik jelly roll…or maybe some autumn fabric! Arrrgghhh – I hate deciding!!!!

  51. I love the quilt you featured on Moda Bake Shop. I would save it until circa 1934 is available and use it towards getting those supplies!

  52. I’m hearting some Christmas fabric and would use it toward that purchase. Loved your post and think I will try this 9 patch one day. Your instructions made me think I can do that!

  53. Since my sweet daughter, Sherryl, said she would get me Children At Play, I will get her the Blogger’s Choice with the GC. ;) I love the Crumb quilt, btw, and have to make one. I totally agree with your husband but I am going to be one with the most fabric when I die and will WIN. ;) Thanks for a great blog and sharing your treasures with us.

  54. I love this new quilt and it we be extra nice if I had won gift card to buy all I needed to make this very cute quilt just for ME!!!

  55. Congratulations on such a great quilt! I’d love to spend the gift certificate on some Bella solids. I’m loving the 30’s bundle, so that would be my first pick!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  56. Skip the gift certificate and just send me that quilt…IT IS AMAZING…love the fabric line! Okay, since that’s not gonna happen, I’ll have to make my own, so I’ll have to hold on to the gift certificate until the 1934 line is available, it is yummy! Thanks for the inspiration, and the chance to win!

  57. thanks for NO HOOPS! I would use the certificate for an assortment of goodies…maybe a pattern I’ve been wanting and some Portobello by Alice Kennedy orrrrrrrrrr some of the new Secret Garden by Sandi Henderson when it arrives. THANK YOU!

  58. Hi Jo — Love your quilt for Moda Bake Shop! If I had the gift certificate I would probably buy some of the Comfort fabrics by Moda or some other reproduction fabrics. I love the look of the nine-patch quilt made from the Comfort fabrics. I have been looking for the right quilt to make for my bed and this might be it! Thanks for an inspiring blog!

  59. I love reading your posts – and am jealous you were at a Bonnie class. Oh – to win a blog giveaway – would be my first…but boy then to decide….I love the prim gatherings bundles, the indgo bundles, the Cirtrine orange / white bundles……um……yeah – I’d spend a few hours – deciding (always my problem picking colors for a new project) but woudl love a jump start :) Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  60. Congrats on bake shop publish! Very nice quilt. I’ve starting to think about making a flannel quilt for fall so I’d use the gift cert to getsome fabric.

  61. I really like your quilt for Moda Bake Shop!! I have been thinking of using the Circa 1934 fabric line to make a quilt for my son’s room. So, I guess that is my way of saying I would use the gift certificate to buy some Circa 1934 fabric.

  62. Congratulations on being on Moda Bake Shop! I’d probably choose Leaf Treasures & Tidbits Fat Quarter Bundle
    Piece O’ Cake Designs for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. However, I might choose Kona solids or Schnibble patterns. Thanks for the giveaway!

  63. I agree with Amy I want to mae the 1934 Nine-Patch Quilt also so I guess I would use the gift cert toward fabric for that.

  64. melissa raddetz

    I think I’d copy your moda bake shop quilt, so I’d buy Circa 1934. I loooove everything about it! I’m a faithful blog reader of yours Jo and I’m always inspired by your work.

  65. I am in the mood for Kate Spain’s Terrain, so I’d use the certificate for that….I love your posts and appreciate the time you spend on the blog, I look forward to reading yours everyday!

  66. Wow…….this quilt absolutely reminds me of one my Grannie did for me back in the day. She used various prints and solids……all corduroy with a flannel back. Yes, I still have it. Gosh, if it could only talk…… has so much history and was on my bed for around 40 years. It is looking a little tattered and I hope to get it restored and pass it on to a grandchild. I would have to buy something from the 1934 Moda line………and do an updated version of Grannie’s Nine Patch. Great giveaway!

  67. I love this quilt! Even DH likes it! I would use the certificate (if I got really lucky!!!) to buy the fabrics for this quilt. The reproductions are great and just the colors I don’t have in my stash.

  68. I love your new quilt and I really love the backing! So pretty.
    I would either get civil war fabrics or a layer cake to make one of the schnibbles times two patterns that Im wanting to make. Thanks for the giveway too.

  69. Just popped on over after seeing your recipe on Moda Bake Shop. It’s a cute pattern and I like the fabric line-I’d love to make this quilt or another one if I win the gift certificate.

  70. What a lovely 9-patch quilt! If I won I would select some solids (inspired by your quilt), may Konas. Thanks for the giveaway and the nice “recipe” on MBS!

  71. This is my first time to visit your blog, but I will be back. I think I’d probably use the gc toward some of the line you used in this quilt. I love retro fabrics and these are perfect! Thanks for the chance to enter!

  72. The Three Sister’s new fabric line called Etchings would be fun to invest in. Your new pattern on the MBS is very nice. Thank you for offering this give away with Kimberly.

  73. I love the Circa 1934 that you used! The colors have such a nice effect all together. Also really like polka dots, all sizes and colors. I would probably want the black and white dots (black on white and white on black)….and the tangerine and white dots….and….well it’s really hard to choose.
