Moda Bake Shop: Ring Around the Rosies

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 run 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 quilt 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. We’re here with you today to show you our latest creation made with Moda’s Rambling Rose fabric line. The second we saw the beautiful line with pretty floral prints we knew we wanted to make something with it. Our Ring Around the Rosies was so fun to make. We made a bonus quilt with the leftovers. Make sure to read through the entire pattern to find the bonus baby quilt we made.

Sewing Instructions:

  1. To make one block, you will need a set of 5 matching 2 ½” x 6 ½” rectangles and a matching 2 ½” square. You will also need 4- 2 ½” neutral squares. To begin, draw a line on the back of each of the neutral squares, connecting opposite corners. With right sides together, place a square on one end of a colored rectangle. Sew on the drawn line, trim the seam allowance to approximately ¼”, and press to the neutral background.

  1. Using the remaining 2 ½” x 6 ½” rectangle and 2 ½” square, assemble the block. Make 72 blocks by sewing a 2 1/2″ square onto one of the matching three units.

Sew one of the matching three units, the single unit, and the fabric strip together as shown.

Sew the remaining unit to the side as shown.

  1. Layout the quilt, taking care to disperse the colors throughout the quilt. Assemble first into diagonal rows. Add the appropriate setting triangle to each end of the rows. Add the corner triangles as shown.  Sew the rows together to complete the center of the quilt.

Your finished quilt should be 77 ½” x 89”.

    Just love that quilt and the fabric line. I printed out the pattern & bought the fabric way back when but still haven’t made the quilt. The fabric is in a tub under my quilting machine, just waiting its turn.
