Moda Bake Shop: Oink a Doodle Moo time 2 or 3

As many of you know, Kelli and I did a lot of quilts for Moda Bake Shop several years ago.  Some of the things you likely don’t know is that Moda Bake Shop isn’t ran quite the way it used to run.  The site has been reworked and can now be found through www.modafabrics.com.  Well through all of this, Kelli and I have been overwhelmed by questions from interested parties wanting the patterns for specific quilts as some of the patterns have been “lost in the archives”.  Well, to be honest, we are wanting to avoid all those emails and requests so we are going to be featuring one of our old Moda Bake Shop quilts or projects each week until all of them are posted here on our blog so we can readily find them and have access to them whenever we want.  These quilts will be archived here on the blog in the free patterns section on the right column.

Hello from Jo and Kelli at Jo’s Country Junction.  If you’ve read our blog, you know that we are farm gals and our guys are farmers. When we saw Moda’s new line “Oink a Doodle Moo”, we just knew we had to design something using it.  We live, breathe, eat and sleep farming…we might as well sew it too!  We ended up with not one, not two, but THREE baby quilts all from one jelly roll!! Isn’t that neat? After you read the tutorial, you’ll want to come over to our blog and sign up for a chance to win a free jelly roll to help you get started on your own set of quilts.  Read on and we’ll show how to make them.

Sewing Blocks:
To make 1 woven block, you will need 2 matching 6 1/2” rectangles, the matching 2 1/2” square, and 2 red 2 1/2” squares.

Using the 2 1/2” squares, connect 1 printed square to 1 red square. Press to the red square.

Connect the second red square to the printed square.  Press to the red square.

With right sides together, connect 1 pieced rectangle to a printed rectangle on the long side.  Press to the printed rectangle.  Repeat with the second printed rectangle.

Repeat to make a total of 24 blocks.

To make the cow print corner blocks, place a red 4 1/2” square in the corner of a 6 1/2” cow print square with right sides together.

Sew diagonally from corner to corner of the red square.  Trim seam to approximately ¼” on the outside of the block.  Press to the red triangle. To create this.

Sew diagonally from corner to corner.  Trim seam to 1/4″on the outside of the block.  Press to the cow print triangle.  To create this.

Assemble each of the blocks as shown.  Use the same green, red, and blue squares throughout each of the individual blocks.  Use the half-square triangles randomly through each of the blocks.

With right sides together, stitch the 2 1/2” x 10 1/2” to opposite sides of each of the 4 panel blocks.  Press to the red border.4.  Attach the 2 1/2” x 14 1/2” rectangles to the remaining sides of each of the 4 panel blocks.  Again, press to the red border.

    This is the pattern that made me aware of your blog and I have been following you since then. At that time I only had 3 grandchildren, 2 newborns and a two year old. (They are now 6,6,&8) I made these quilts for them for Christmas that year.
