Dashing Stars

Thank y'all for being so patient with me!  My posts have been sporadic as I'm still on my push to finish the quilts for Moda Bake Shop.  But thankfully, one more is done with only one more to go!  Speaking of....I'm here today to introduce you to Dashing Stars!

This is a really simple design but it is so much fun!  The fabrics are Dot.Dot.Dash by Me and My Sister Designs for Moda and are just so bright and cheerful!

And yes, that's a yellow polka dot background!  I absolutely love polka dots and this quilt is full of them...

 Dashing Stars - Block

It's posted for free in this full/queen size over at Moda but I've also written it in crib, lap, twin, and king and have it over in my Etsy store.  As usual, to celebrate, I'm offering a 20% discount on everything in my store through 12/6 with discount code STARS20.

I truly hope that you enjoy making this quilt as much as I did.  If you do make one, I'd love to see your version!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Until next time...

Butterfly Trellis Is Here!

I tell you my friends, thanks so much for bearing with me lately. I am right in the middle of a big push of projects for Moda Bake Shop and will be for several more weeks. But today, I finally get to show you Butterfly Trellis!  I so WISH I could get the pictures to do this quilt justice!

Butterfly Trellis

This quilt has had 3 photo shoots and this is the best I could get.  It's so pretty!  Here's a few close ups...

Butterfly Trellis - Closeup

The fabric is Colette by Moda.  It is full of those soft, gorgeous pastels that just scream, "Spring," to me.

Butterfly Trellis - Butterfly Block

It's full of paisley and pinks and purples, blues and greens.  It's just beautiful.  I also made a crib size version to put up in the QUILT SHOP THAT WANTS TO SELL MY PATTERNS!!!

Butterfly Trellis Baby Quilt 

So much going on my friends!!  This pattern is on Moda Bake Shop in the Full/Queen size.  If you would like the instructions for the other sizes, I have the pattern available in my Etsy store.   And again, to celebrate, everything in the shop is 20% off using coupon code, BUTTERFLY20, good through the 21st.

Thanks again for bearing with the light posts lately.  I truly hope you enjoy Butterfly Trellis.  It is my new favorite! :)

Americana - Freedom Lane

Did y'all have a good Halloween??  I had so much fun.  I'll do a post later and share some of the fun but I did manage to get some sewing done.  I needed to sew up my Freedom Lane as part of the Americana Quilt Along that my dear friend Deana is hosting.  And let me just tell you, it is so freaking cute!!!  Here's the first block, the church...

Americana - Church

It's so pretty!!  Then I sewed up the schoolhouse...

Love it so much!!  And then I made up the village house...

There is one more block, but I forgot to take grey with me and as the block is a cemetery, I was out of luck.  Here is the row so far...

Americana - Freedom Lane

I love it so much!  Deana is so talented.  I love every one of her designs.
