Summer Plans :: Moda Bake Shop

Today on Moda Bake Shop I'm sharing my Summer Plans quilt tutorial. This is a fun buzz-saw quilt that I have made several times using different variations. This time around I made the traditional block with the bright, contemporary Grunge Hits the Spot fabrics by BasicGrey.

The background fabric is from BasicGrey's upcoming Meraki line. I love the positive affirmations of this simple black and white print.

The playfulness of the dragonfly quilting gets me every time I look at it! It reminds me of the summer evenings I'm longing for. Quilting was done by Utah Valley Quilting.

This is my first buzz-saw quilt which I made in 2007, using 1930's reproduction fabrics. It's just 12 blocks with a 1" white border and a 6" outer boarder. The perfect size for a baby quilt!

Clementine Quilt Along :: Broken Berries

Today I'm sharing the block two in the Clementine Quilt Along by Fat Quarter Shop. I love that the Broken Berries blocks are made from a few of my favorite sub-blocks: square in a square, flying geese, and half-square triangles.

It's been fun to follow the #clementinequiltalong hashtag on Instagram. It's also great to know that the donations for the block patterns help to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
