Moda Bakeshop Fun

I have admired this quilt from Moda Bake Shop for some time now. On National Quilting Day, I stayed in my sewing room all day. (It was wonderful!). I love this quilt because it really is made with just one charm pack and 1 1/4 yards of solid fabric for the top.

It's at the quilter's to be quilted now. Because I'm not quilting it myself, it took 1 1/3 yards for backing and 1/3 yard for binding. I'll show it again after it's quilted and bound, but I'm very pleased with the Moda instructions. The directions for how to press the seams, makes the whole quilt easy to put together. The only thing I would do different is cut my squares for the pinwheels, and not sew half triangles (you know, draw a line down the center of the square, sew 1/4 inch on each side of it and then cut.) Those prairie points just make it look so whimsical!
