Moda Bake Shop Tutorial

My very first MBS tutorial is up today. Patchwork Pets. You can also find a shortcut to in under my tutorials on the right side of my blog.


This quilt design was based off the fabric. I saw the Max and Whiskers line and though that it needed to be a highlight of this quilt. I also wanted to make a tutorial that could be done in a couple days. Perfect for donation quilts, the last minute baby shower, or even a quilt for you beloved pet.

Hope you all enjoy it! Thanks for looking…..there will be more tutorials in the future, so stay tuned.

Green Eggs and Ham?

I came across a few small pieces of Dr Seuss fabric so I decided a pin cushion was in order.


The Pin toppers were made by a friend of mine, you can find her  here. She does beautiful work. So send her a flicker mail and tell her Amy sent you! She does requests and has some awesome pins already in her pin photo stream.


I embroidered “Green Eggs and Ham” on the pin cushion, which I used linen on….I love that part. Probably my favorite part of the whole thing. How does Linen make everything look so awesome?


The back is my favorite print. Just really simple but quotes Dr Seuss and Its perfect.


This happy little guy will be making it home, hopefully next week, to its new owner. Along with my Doll quilt swap. I hope that my partner likes it. I really love how it turned out.


In other news…I finally got a solids card. This is the Bella Solids card, and I would never have gotten one if I didn’t win it. I won it playing blog bingo over Christmas.


Stay tuned as my first Moda Bake Shop goes up tomorrow. It’s a very simple quilt, sew in a weekend. I based it off the fabric I used. Since I used more of a novelty type fabric I didn’t want the design to be overpowering.

DQS 10 finished

One thing down, just a few more to go. Sorry about it being crooked. I had to use a bit of tape and snap the picture before it fell off my brick wall. LOL

If anyone has any ideas of how I can hang my quilt on my wall for pictures I would love to know. I really love the brick backdrop but not sure how to hang my quilts up there.


So my partner and I have different taste. I was taking a chance with these colors and style. I am not used to this, but I really like how it turned out. Although I don’t normally do brights I think I picked the right pattern, quilting and fabric.


The back is Alexander Henry June Jubilee; in case anyone wants to know. dqsback


Should send at the end of the month, until then it will sit happily in my view!
