Twists and Turns - A MBS Tutorial

Today I am so excited to share a new Moda Bake Shop Tutorial.  It has been a little bit since I was over there so it is fun to be back again :)  I call this quilt Twists and Turns .  It is a super easy quilt to put together, I never used a pin :)  You can find the step by step tutorial over at the Moda Bake Shop.

This quilt is made with 2 jelly rolls and some 2 yardage cuts.  The fabric is the ever so adorable Bluebird Park from Kate and Birdie.  Those little hedgehogs are so stinking adorable!!

The fun thing about this particular quilt is that there are endless design options on how you lay your blocks out.  These are a few of my favorites.  A super modern square design, a more traditional braid, or an improv maze layout.  And the possibilities are endless :)


Once you pick your layout your top will be put together in no time and then it is time to quilt it up.  I was a little swamped with my Lucky Stars Market quilt at that point, so Barbara was kind enough to quilt this up for me on the long arm.  She quilted adorable flowers in all shapes and sizes and traveling loops.  It is just perfect for these whimsical prints :)

Twists and Turns measures 84" x 84", perfect for a family picnic, well  just as soon as it warms up enough to have a picnic :)

Alright, that's all I have here, so pop on over to the Moda Bake Shop and check out Twists and Turns, you'll have the whole winter to get your spring picnic quilt put together :)
