Yay! I have been dying to show you these for months now. Seriously. I turned the digital designs/covers in to Moda for the playbook (a book with all the new fabric/patterns in it) in November so it has definitely been tough to keep under my hat.
I may have taken too many photos...
First up, Vintage Holiday.
This is a super simple, clean, fun to put together quilt. It uses fat quarters, is 54" x 68" and the fabric is all from Vintage Modern, our new line for Moda. (Which will be available in May!)
I pieced and free motion quilted this one on my sewing machine and had a lovely time. It was about super late and I kept saying, "okay, I'll just do one more block..." then I'd do one more, and one more after that. I think I finished about 4 am. The next day was a looong day. :-) Totally worth it though.
Next up is On a Whim.
This is also a fat quarter quilt, is 71" x 86", and isn't nearly as tricky as it looks to put together. This one was quilted by Andrea Marquez and pieced by the lovely Moda Lissa.
When Vintage Modern came a week before Christmas (and I was in the middle of packing the fam for Christmas in Idaho) Lissa emailed me and asked if she could help me by piecing (and testing) one of my new patterns. I may have gotten a little teary. So sweet of her. She did a wonderful job. No surprise there. Thank you Lissa!
Um, I really love this one. Can I say that? I want to make it for my sister's baby boy (coming in March) out of a bunch of grays, greens, and aquas. Hopefully she doesn't read this post. Although to be honest, my "baby quilts" as of late have been more like "first birthday quilts." Sad, but true.
Sherri pieced this one for me the week of Christmas (great timing, I know! Thank you Sherri!) and I just love the way it turned out. It doesn't have any Y seams or tricky type sewing, and uses a Jelly Roll and a little yardage. I quilted it on my sewing machine with my walking foot and about 200 million straight(ish) lines. My walking foot is giving out on me and was really struggling by the end. This quilt is 60" x70" so there were a LOT of straight lines.
And last but not least, Piece of Cake 3.
Piece of Cake 1 and 2 are two of my best sellers, and are such great quilts for beginners or a quick project so I thought it would be fun to design one more. When I have friends that want to start quilting I always give them a Piece of Cake pattern and a Layer Cake. So easy.
I pieced this one the day after I pieced Vintage Holiday (At least I think I did. That day is a little fuzzy) and quilted it with an all over meandering stipple. I still love me a good stipple. Especially after a quilt is washed. This quilt is 63" x 74".
Always a little scary to show something I've been working on and hope that you like them as much as I do!
All four are now available in the shop. Yay! Which one is your favorite?
