Moda Bake Shop - Improved 9 patch quilt

This post is going to be picture heavy!  I finally finished my latest MBS project (project post here) - a full size raw-edge applique quilt.  I quilted it in a traditional feather wreath - my first try at feathers (and done on my DSM, a Pfaff tiptronic 2030).  Without further ado.....

It has been washed and there was absolutely zero blue on the white background (or on the color catchers!).  Love that Moda!  The raw edges haven't frayed much yet, but they will the more it gets washed and used :)  This one is a keeper!
I have made one other raw-edge quilt - that was my raw-edge circle quilt.  It has been my couch quilt for a few years now and it looks as good today as it did the day I made it.  So, yes, this technique still makes a sturdy quilt!



  1. Send them to me lol
    Down the coast
    On the left coast

  2. Very cool quilt!! and fabulous quilting, too. Great job.

  3. Wow! I've just started playing with raw edge appliqué,musing crafted applique's method with fabric mod podge. This is super cool. AND I'm a sucker for blue and white quilts.

  4. I love both of these quilts. the blue and white looks fresh and I do love the raw edges. It gives it a cozy, come snuggle in me feel

    The DP quilt... that thing makes me nuts with happiness. I love all of the colors and the design and I want to make that. So basically, you made each block and sewed the pieced circles on the block and then sewed all the blocks together. It is lovely. I need to get my glasses now and take a closer look. You are such an inspiration

    1. Okay with glasses on (lol, oldness is an adventure) I took a good look at the quilts and dang girl you are amazing. :-D :-D
