The Best of Moda Bake Shop book is here and I’m honored to have one of my quilts included! The book has fifteen precut-friendly projects, each by a different quilt pattern designer. There’s a wide variety of projects and definitely something for everyone! The cover quilt uses two charm packs (5″ squares) and was designed by Christine Weld. I absolutely love those cute houses and can’t believe you only need two charm packs to make them all!
The quilt that I designed is called Vintage Checkerboard. It’s part checkerboard, part Irish Chain, and super easy with a precut jelly roll! The fabric is Scarlet & Sage from Fig Tree for Moda fabrics and the background is Moda Bella Solid in Ivory. I love that the fabrics go so well with the vintage/heirloom feel of the quilt.
One of my favorite projects from the book is this mini quilt, Christmas Baubles, by Jen Daly. It uses one mini charm pack and is such a cute way to use those little squares of fabric! This quilt would also be perfect to use up scraps or for fussy cutting some favorite Christmas fabric to make the ornaments.
Another favorite is Twin Pop by the mom/daughter duo Diane Brinton and Audrey Mann. Seriously, such a fun quilt, right?!? Twin Pop uses jelly roll strips and has such a clever construction to make the popsicles look 3D.
