Here's my first finished Little House Coaster made out of an Audra's Charm Pack. I really like it.
And this is my Moda Friendship Block. I really like it too. My comment yesterday that I hadn't pieced it was made because it wouldn't have looked this good if I had pieced it. I learned to piece way back when the dinosaurs roamed. We made templates out of cardboard or manila folders, drew around them on the back of the fabric and with right sides together, sewed the block together stitching on the line. We don't do things that way any more and I just never have adapted since I do so much applique. Showing my age, aren't I?
Thanks to Moda, the pattern for my block can be downloaded from here or by clicking on the words above. Thanks Moda Lissa.
I think I'm going to make my little block into a small pillow for my couch when I use one of the bigger quilts. Red binding, don't you think. Maybe I'll do that this weekend since I'm probably going to be mostly at home. It's supposed to snow again Sunday.
Our birdfeeders this morning. Jake said we seemed to be a bit popular. :)
This is Birds, Berries & Baskets made out of Audra's. You can probably see why birds figure in my quilts so much. Baskets in my quilts are a symbol for quilting, stars & moons for God. And of course the pineapple for hospitality or friends. God, nature, quilting & friends. Along with my family, of course, a nice life.
So, now I have a quilt for my couch or wall and a little pillow and coasters to match.
I know I'm probably prejudiced because I have worked for them for so long but I think Moda is just the best!. They produce the best fabric in the world in so many varieties. And then they work hard to make sure the shops and general public have almost as many ideas on how to use them as there are people.
On that note we need to hop on over to see what our designers for today have in store for us.
