Moda Bake Shop - On Point Baby quilt

Doesn't seem possible, but this is my 16th project for the Moda Bake Shop!  Introducing a very easy and beginner friendly quilt project, On Point Baby!  The method of construction is so much easier than piecing angled rows - check it out on the MBS blog!  I can't wait to do this method with jelly rolls and a full sized quilt!

Dresden Irish Chain quilt start

I have started a Dresden Irish Chain quilt - from the leftovers from the Moda Bake Shop Quilt-along.


I also wanted to share this baby quilt I made for my niece.  I forgot to take the post-washing pic darnit!  the centers frayed perfectly :)

The fabrics are all DS quilts from JoAnn's - and she just quit her job at JoAnn's to take time to prepare for the baby :)

MBS quilt along top finished

I made some changes to the pattern and finished it ahead of time.  It is going to be the backing for my MBS 9-patch stars and snowballs.  
Meanwhile, I started a new project.   I may need my head examined.

Moda Bake Shop qult-along

A month or so ago, I joined along in the Moda Bake Shop quilt-along.  It is a lot more fun since they have a facebook group ''Moda Bake Shop Bakers''!



Here are some of my blocks so far:




I might have worked ahead a little and pieced this center part....

Moda Bake Shop, 9 patch stars and snowballs


I have a new Moda Bake Shop project posted today!



I know, I am a bad girl and didn't get it quilted.  I may have forgotten to order backing when I ordered the material for the top though - and didn't have anything on hand that would work unfortunately.  Backing is ordered now though - and I will get it quilted and updated pics ASAP.
 


Any suggestions for quilting?  I don't have a longarm, so my quilting is done on my sewing machine.  I was thinking about a FMQ swirl for this one - it has been a while since I did swirls :)  Although diagonal straight line stitching might be nice here too.  Hmmm.

Moda Bake Shop project sneek peek

Sorry for neglecting this blog lately!  I haven't been quilting for several months until the last couple weeks.  I got some "The Good Life" for a new Moda Bake Shop project.  


Here is a sneek peek (this is my favorite print from the collection)



Aaaaand, only 396 bonus triangles to press....

Scrappy Irish Chain

I noticed that I forgot to share the finished picture of my scrappy Irish chain quilt!  This is a variation of my scrappy Irish chain quilt I made for Moda Bake Shop (that one I used a ''Pond'' green chain and Bonnie and Camille fabrics).  This one has a red chain and American Jane fabrics (Pezzy prints and Wee Play mostly).  I adore this quilt, and it is a keeper!  I did a simple crosshatch in red thread and the backing is red-multi Pezzy print :)  My favorite!
