I hope everyone is enjoying this HOP…Moda is so “cool” organizing these hops so we all can get to know each other a little better and then all talk about our newest fabrics! Then they give us prizes to give-a-way!!! Don’t forget to check back to the Moda Blog to print the pattern with ALL of our blocks! I am sure it is going to awesome! Today I am posting with 2 other great Moda designers…here are their blogs…Kathy Schmitz Studios & Minick & Simpson so hop on over to see what they got going on and maybe win their prize too!
I am supposed to talk about how size matters….well… I was thinking about this as I was driving…and guess what pulls up beside me? A big o’l truck wrecker…the one that picks up disabled trucks and brings them back home safely…and as I am thinking about the blog hop and wondering what I am going to write about…I noticed this on the the truck…Size Does Matter…. so I had to snap a pic of it for the blog post…lol…this could only happen to me…now don’t scold me for using my phone while driving…I wasn’t texting I was being a photographer…So here are my thoughts on SIZE…if we are talking quilts….I like tiny pieces and then I also love big clunky quilts like the last book I did..Flannel Gatherings. I think size is a very personal matter and is as far and anything else…I am glad there are all kinds of sizes…would the world be boring if there was only one size???
Now for the blog hop I made this little quilt….Click Here For the block pattern..now I made the 18″ quilt that we were supposed to make…A lot of the designers have just a little trouble following directions…do you know why? They are way too creative…they can’t keep focused for that long and their mind reads something else..lol…anyway I made this quilt using a 3″ block…here are the measurements…A 4-1 1/4″x 2″ B 4-1 1/4″x 2″ and C 8-1 1/4″x 1 1/4″ as they are not listed on this chart for the block pattern…
Now I want to share with you the other quilts made from the same fabric line as my mini quilt. The fabric line is called Floral Gatherings and then there is also Floral Gatherings Shirtings…This is super cool to have the extra 20 prints to work with. I am showing a close up also so you can take a peek at how they all were quilted…they are all so beautiful…The quilts kits and patterns can be purchased on our site Here
So go size up that project you are working on and finish it so you hopefully can make a sizable dent in your fabric stash and then can go and purchase more Moda fabric!!!
Please leave a comment if you want to win one of the 8 prizes you Moda and I are giving away… They are a surpize so you better comment if you want a chance at these great prizes…Let me know what you favorite “size” of fabric is to buy….Mine is half yards and 5″ charms..
