Butterfly Trellis Is Here!

I tell you my friends, thanks so much for bearing with me lately. I am right in the middle of a big push of projects for Moda Bake Shop and will be for several more weeks. But today, I finally get to show you Butterfly Trellis!  I so WISH I could get the pictures to do this quilt justice!

Butterfly Trellis

This quilt has had 3 photo shoots and this is the best I could get.  It's so pretty!  Here's a few close ups...

Butterfly Trellis - Closeup

The fabric is Colette by Moda.  It is full of those soft, gorgeous pastels that just scream, "Spring," to me.

Butterfly Trellis - Butterfly Block

It's full of paisley and pinks and purples, blues and greens.  It's just beautiful.  I also made a crib size version to put up in the QUILT SHOP THAT WANTS TO SELL MY PATTERNS!!!

Butterfly Trellis Baby Quilt

Americana - Freedom Lane

Did y'all have a good Halloween??  I had so much fun.  I'll do a post later and share some of the fun but I did manage to get some sewing done.  I needed to sew up my Freedom Lane as part of the Americana Quilt Along that my dear friend Deana is hosting.  And let me just tell you, it is so freaking cute!!!  Here's the first block, the church...

Americana - Church

It's so pretty!!  Then I sewed up the schoolhouse...

Love it so much!!  And then I made up the village house...

There is one more block, but I forgot to take grey with me and as the block is a cemetery, I was out of luck.  Here is the row so far...

I love it so much!  Deana is so talented.  I love every one of her designs.

NIOSA is here!!

I can't believe it's finally here!  My newest pattern for Moda Bake Shop is live!  I've been dying to show this one to you.  So without further ado, here is NIOSA...


For those of you that aren't familiar with it, NIOSA (N-eye-O-sah) is Night in Old San Antonio.  During Fiesta, I was inspired by all of the bright, fun colors of the piƱatas and cascarones that hail in Spring in San Antonio.  I started playing around with sawtooth stars and came up with these fun, bright blocks.  They remind me of the fun colors of Fiesta on a night sky, thus NIOSA.  Here's a closer look...

NIOSA - Center

This quilt is made with a fabulous fabric line called Good Karma by Stephanie Ryan.  The colors are so deep, so saturated, that it works perfectly for my NIOSA quilt.

NIOSA - Side

The pattern is on Moda in the full/queen size.  If you want it in sizes crib/lap/twin/king, I have listed it in my Etsy store.  And to celebrate my second quilt for Moda, we're doing a 20% discount on all of your purchases through the end of the month!  Just use promo code NIOSA20.  

NIOSA - Bench

I hope y'all enjoy this one as much as I do!  Alex has already been campaigning for it.  Who is the perfect match for this quilt for you?  If you make it, I'd love to see it!  Please drop me an email sharing your pics.
