I love their patterns. They offer free patterns on their blog, the Moda Bake Shop and they submit regularly to magazines. They have traditional and more modern designs. I also love her honest down home type of blog. Many recipes and gardening tips as well.
I have made other patterns of theirs as well. But as soon as I saw this one I knew I would make it one day…..I just didn’t know when. I had saved it and it seems these things always have a way of coming around in the perfect timing. I had a bunch of hose bubbly gum..girly scraps that I loved…and I wanted to put them in the same quilt. I knew I would love it. 🙂 I used scraps of solid gray and white for my background …or setting chevron. I figured it would be fine no matter what my scraps were because they all have patterns. It worked out well.
This quilt had the perfect size units to make the most of the scraps I had..and I was very familiar with my tri-recs ruler after working on a few Bonnie Hunter quilts. 🙂 I did take some time this last week to get it quilted. I knew It would be simple and it wouldn’t take me very long. Plus I just like having one of my own finishes every once in awhile. 🙂 Can you see how a little bit of yellow goes a long way? I love yellow. I had barely any blue..everything is pink & red. That’s very typical of me. I wonder if I will ever not love pink as much? It’s been a long time….like 37 years??? and I still love it!
I also used scarps for the back. I did pull stash to piece together….but then saw a bunch of scraps from other backings I had cut….and decided to just go ahead and strip those and use them. I love it so much!
There are flannel and cotton strips in there….which kind of makes my heart pitter-patter because in my house we are very aware of textures and we love to mix them. 🙂
Have a great day!
