Last fall Moda Fabrics released a great free pattern for some of their pre-cuts called Moda Love. You can find those patterns at http://www.unitednotions.com/Moda-Love-Layer-Cake-Quilt.pdf I wasn’t able to quilt along with them at the time, but I did finally make a mini version using a Baby Jane mini charm pack.
Here is a photo of the pillow front (with a 2 inch border) after it was quilted. The pillow finishes at 16″ (the Moda Love mini quilt finishes at 12″). I love the colors.
A detailed shot shows that I echoe quilted 1/4″ on either side of each vertical and horizontal seam. I love the nice texture it provides.
And here is the finished pillow cover. I have to say, it looks pretty good in my little sewing room corner…but it can’t stay because I’m shipping it out to its new owner tomorrow.
Honestly, one of my favorite things while making this was the happy accident I noticed when cutting the backing while preparing to quilt the pillow front. Don’t my scissors match it perfectly?!?! Yep, the small things in life really do make me happy 🙂
Thanks for stopping by.
