Building Blocks at the Moda Bake Shop

I am very excited to have another Moda Bake Shop tutorial posted today!!! Please hop over and check out Building Blocks. Thank you to all who are visiting from the Bake Shop!

I love all of Bonnie & Camille's fabric collections so I was incredibly excited to get to play with their new line Daysail.  I especially love the dark blues in the line, the are so rich and saturated.  

From my survey during the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day I found that many many people had trouble deciding what to with the charm packs they had hanging out in their sewing rooms.  For the pattern, my goal was to create a fun and beginner friendly quilt that uses only 1 charm pack.

The quilt is actually pieced as one large court house block with a center square and a number of borders.  The center square is also perfect to personalize using an appliqued or embroidered name.

I used a different quilt pattern for each of the types of borders:

In the center, I quilted pebbles using a white thread.  For the background borders, I quilted straight lines using a white thread.  For the charm square borders, I quilted a wood grain pattern using a light gray thread.  For the print borders (the dark blue boat print), I quilted a stipple pattern using a dark blue thread.




I hope you hope over to the Moda Bake Shop to check out the quilt and tutorial :)

  1. What a cute pattern to show off prints you love, and using a charm pack for the basis is pretty sweet, too (I hate cutting fabric although I vary rarely purchase pre-cuts).
