Isn't this Moda fabric gorgeous? We have had it in the shop for quite a while and it just wasn't moving. I suspect that it might be the fact that it doesn't lend itself well to being cut up and many quilters just aren't sure what to do with large, overall prints.

A couple of years ago I was asked to design a pattern for Exclusively Quilters for their Moose Meadows line of fabric. I was faced with just that dilemma. I designed a simple block to use as a border and put the quilt together. Here is the pattern that resulted:

We have since come to realize that this pattern works well for any large scale print. Here is the resulting quilt with that beautiful Moda fabric. I am anxious to get it quilted...I think the brown binding will finish it off perfectly!

I fell in love with this puppy fabric when it came in and decided to try it out with this pattern. I love the results!

This quilt is the perfect size for a nap or snuggle on the couch, 60" X 66".

We offer both of these quilts as kits in the shop. Because supplies are limited, we won't be putting these up on our website. Give us a call or stop in if you would like one. (406-420-1003)
