Happy Halloween! And what better way to celebrate than a special treat! Today is the day for the Moda Stitch Pink Quilt reveal! Wow did this month just fly by. This sew-along was the best sew-along I have ever participated in or finished on time. 🙂 I ended up with an amazing quilt and if you make it until the end of this post, you will see what I did with my quilt.
Such a beautiful quilt!
A few photos of it before I quilted it.
I was not sure initially if I would set my blocks just like the original pattern, but when I saw the blocks laid out together, I just fell in love.
I quilted it on my Innova with the an edge-to-edge computerized design called Deb’s Feathers. Edge-to-Edge quilting service info available here.
Perfect little stitches. Love how it looks quilted!
Moda Stitch Pink quilt is in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Moda is donating a portion of the Grunge kits/fabric proceeds made with this quilt towards Breast Cancer Research. When Carrie at Moda (the genius behind this gorgeous quilt pattern) asked if I would participate, I knew just what I would do with my quilt. If you have followed me the last 10 years, you know I have mentioned a very dear friend that also quilts, Patti. Well, Patti is a FOUR yes FOUR time cancer survivor, including breast cancer as well as three other cancers. Good friends are hard to come by and she is a once in a lifetime kind of friend. I completely surprised her. She stopped by my studio and saw the quilt and of course she knew I had been working on. She’s been contemplating making it herself after seeing mine. I mentioned that I made a special label for it and told her to check it out.
She read it with tears. Herself a quilter, it’s the first time she’s ever received a quilt except for her wedding which inspired her to learn to quilt. Although, I loved the quilt so much…giving it to Patti was a feeling I will never forget. The best feeling. Zero regrets.
I told her if we ever divorce…I get the quilt in the divorce. LOLOLOL! Finishing directions for the quilt here.
Now lets get caught up on those last for blocks. Block 27 – Give Me Wings
I love the name of the block! Larger pieces…stitched up quickly. A nice change of pace. I also used Triangle Paper for the half-square triangles. Directions for Block 27 here.
Block 28 – Groovy Granny
Another scrappy version for me. I love using those leftover pieces. These last few blocks were some of my favorites. I just love this one. Direcetions for Block 28 here.
Block 29 – Twinkle Twinkle
Okay, this one is my favorite. 🙂 For real this time. Lots of pieces. Another scrappy version. Starch and triangle paper helped aid me in getting this one stitched with ease. I just took my time and laid all the pieces out first. The Triangle Papers, Folded Corner Ruler and Flying Geese Ruler I used throughout the quilt are now available in my shop here. Directions for Block 29 here.
Block 30 – Mother Hen
The last block. I was sad to piece the last one. However, lucky for me it was another great block to use leftover pieces. The scrappier the merrier, I say! Lots of pieces, but it stitched up easily. I also refer to this block as Anniversary Block. My wedding anniversary is on Oct. 30 AND I started this blog 10 years ago. Happy Anniversary, Friends! So how about a little giveaway! Just leave me a comment here telling me your favorite Halloween treat or your favorite treat in general or favorite quilt block. I will announce a winner Monday, November 2. Directions for Block 30 here.
If you’d like a second chance to win, I am giving a basket of goodies on my Instagram as well here.
Hope you all enjoyed this sew-along as much as I did!
