Now, I’m a chef!

No, not the kind with the tall white hat.  I’m the kind of chef with a sewing machine – a Moda Bake Shop chef!  For those of you who are confused, Moda Bake Shop is a blog where “chefs” partner with Moda to provide free “recipes” for great projects using Moda’s precut fabrics.

My project is called Neighborhood Charm.  I used a charm pack of Sweetwater’s Mama Said Sew line and some background fabric and stitched up this sweet little quilt.  I love house quilts so much, I just had to make a neighborhood out of such wonderful fabrics.  The design really lets each fabric shine by itself and as part of the whole.

Don’t you just love the red, black, grey and cream color scheme too?  Everyone loves the text prints (me included), but this line has a lot of other great prints too.  I think this one with the circle design is my favorite.  But there are dots, zig zags, bias gingham and more!  Head on over to Moda Bake Shop to check it out!

    Totally charming and very calming! I love how effective simple, repeated shapes and a restrained colour palette can be.

    Love house quilts, and yours is super modern with this color scheme and clean lines. It would be superb on an office as a wall hanging.

    Congratulations on your 'culinary' delight
    A perfect little quilt which could be easily adapted into a child's quilt with some appliqué additions by anyone who was afraid to try something more difficult – perfect
