Moda Friendship Quilt Along


Today begins the Moda Friendship Quilt Along!  The designers have made blocks each using their fabric lines from Moda. We all have a pattern to share with our friends.....meaning you! Go to  Moda's Cutting Table blog site and you can find the designer's link and date they are posting their patterns. (I'm sure this means free gifts too!)


Our pattern involves stars....of course. I love any pattern with a star. The block I made uses our newest fabric line "Field Notes".



The center block is saved for a signature if you should wish.

 

When you glance at the block the piecing might seem a bit hard but the instructions make this block very simple. I can envision a whole quilt of these sweet stars. It makes me think of spring. It's so dark here today I could use a bit of spring.

 Here's our basket quilt made from "Field Notes". The pattern, Dandelion Basket will be at your local quilt shop soon. It's also been made into a fabric kit by Moda so you can have one just like this! (Again available at your local quilt shop soon.)



 I added this tiny ruffle to the quilt edge. Lots of work....but turns out so sweet.


The fabric on the back of the quilt is also from the Field Note fabric line. I love the scrapbook look of this print.

Look for a  "Field Notes" fabric contest on this site later in the week.  I'm working on the final details for cross stitch market in Nashville the first weekend in March. I'm tap dancing as fast as I can to get it all done.

Hugs to you all!
