Just a couple more weeks until I receive my sample yardage of my new Moda fabric collection Into the Woods! I’m so excited to get my clutches on it. (If you hadn’t already read my interview on the Moda blog, you can learn a few details about the line here).
Until then, I’ve been busy writing new patterns and taking care of sick kids. Oh and finishing up all 25 blocks for the quilt seen above! It’s Fat Quarter Shop’s 2012 Mystery Designer Block of the Month. There was enough fabric for me to make 2 of each block and then I made up a 25th–the little apple you see in the center. I got the idea of the on-point quilt-top arrangement from Elaine. I hadn’t really been sure how to finish it–I missed out on the finishing kit and was looking for ideas when I came across hers. It was love at first sight and I’ve been excited to finish mine ever since I saw hers. Brilliant job, Elaine!
If you’d like to make the 2012 Mystery Designer Block of the Month, Fat Quarter Shop has made all 12 block patterns + their finishing instructions available:
It may be a while until I will have time to quilt this one. Any ideas on how I should do it?
