And now that this Moda Bake Shop Tutorial has been published for a while, I can now post it here on my for your convenience ;) So just follow along below for the full step-by-step tutorial. And if you just love it, you can get the printer friendly version here :)
So let's get to it . . . Here is what you need:
1 Ombre Confetti Metallic Jelly Roll® by Vanessa Christenson for Moda
1/2 Yard Modafications Metallic White - 9884 11M
1/2 Yard Modafications Metallic Jet - 9884 26M
3 3/4 Yards Moda Bella Solid White - 9900 98 - background fabric
4 Yards of your Favorite Confetti Metallic Print 10807 - backing fabric
STEP 1 - CUTTING
Start out with your Jelly Roll. There are two strips of each of the 20 colors in the roll. You will be leaving one strip uncut, and the second strip, place on your cutting mat folded in half. Cut a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" square and an 2 1/2" x 18 1/2" strip from the strip. You will have two of each cut and the second set can be put in your scrap drawer. The 2 1/2" square will be used in your quilt top and the 2 1/2" x 18 1/2" strip can be set aside for the moment as it will be used to make a scrappy binding.
(20) 2 1/2" x Width of Fabric Strips - One of each color
(20) 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" Squares - One of each color
(20) 2 1/2" x 18 1/2" strips to be used for binding.
From the Background Fabric (White Bella Solid) cut:
(6) 6 1/2" x Width of Fabric Strips
(20) 2 1/2" x Width of Fabric Strips
(82) 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" rectangles
From the Modifications Metallic White fabric cut:
(80) 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares
And finally, from the Modifications Metallic Black fabric cut:
(3) 2 1/2" x Width of Fabric Strips
(31) 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares
STEP 2 - STRIP PIECING 2 PATCH UNITS
We will start with some Strip Piecing. Whenever I strip piece I always turn my stitch length down slightly as you will be coming back and cutting through your stitches. Grab the pile of 2 1/2" x WOF Print fabric strips and the 2 1/2" x WOF Background fabric strips. Place a Background strip on a Print strip and stitch a 1/4" seam along the long edge. I just align the raw edges as I am stitching.
STEP 3 - SEWING THE BLOCK
So now with all of your Two Patches cut, you are ready to make the blocks. I will be showing how to make one block at a time, but if you are good at keeping track of your stacked pieces, you can choose to chain piece several or all of the blocks at once. Or you can make them 1 block at a time as it shows. Whichever is your preference ;)
Start by laying out 4 Two Patch Units of 1 Print color and 1 Modifications White 2 1/2" square as shown below. Stack 4 Sets total on this layout. Be sure and mix up the ombre in your stacks so you don't have one set of 4 that it is all light or all dark ;)
STEP 4 - STRIP PIECING THE SASHING UNITS
With your blocks made, we are going to go back to some Strip Piecing to make the Sashing Units. Again, you will want to lower your stitch length a bit of this ;) Grab the (6) 6 1/2" x WOF Background Strips and the (3) 2 1/2" x WOF Modifications Black Strips and lay them out as shown in three stacks, only not folded.
STEP 5 - SEWING THE QUILT TOP
We will start by sewing the Sashing Rows together. Layout (5) Modificiations Black 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares and (4) Sashing Units as shown in the first row. Place the Black Squares onto the ends of the Sashing Units as shown in the second row. Chain Stitch a 1/4" seam along the edges. Clip the threads and lay the units back out again as shown in the third row. Now you can sew the row together. Place the second unit onto the first unit as shown in the fourth row and stitch a 1/4" seam along the edge. Then Place the third unit onto the second unit as shown in the fifth row and stitch a 1/4" seam along the edge. Continue in this manner until the entire row is sewn. Repeat (or chain stitch) to make 6 Row Total. Press the seam allowances towards the Background Rectangles.
So . . . Let's finish it up ;) Time to Baste It, Quilt It, and Bind It!!! Which is a whole lot in one little sentence. If you are new to quilting, you can see my Finishing Your Quilt Series of video tutorials that will walk you through Basting, Quilting, and Binding step by step ;)
And then you can bind. Remember those (20) 2 1/2" x 18 1/2" strips you cut at the beginning. sew those into your binding strip. You can do them in color order like I did or just mix them up, whichever you prefer. Either way, it will make a super scrappy binding that will be the perfect finish to your quilt!!
STEP 7 - ENJOY
Shine finishes at 66" x 82" making it the perfect size to snuggle up with as a large lap quilt or it would also work great as a twin size bedspread. And with all that Confetti Metallic Goodness, it is sure to make you smile each time you see it ;)
Thanks for popping in today and each and every day!!! I truly feel blessed each day to be part of such an amazing industry and to get to share it with so many wonderful quilty friends!!
*** Note - When making this quilt, I was able to order the fabric directly from the Moda Warehouse. It has been brought to my attention that finding the Modifications Metallic White and Black can be difficult to find. If you can't find them, I recommend using Zen Chic's Modern Backgrounds Metallic Confetti Black print and the Modern Backgrounds Metallic Confetti White print. They will make a great substitution!! Fat Quarter Shop carries both and you can also get the Ombre Confetti Jelly Rolls there now as well and save on shipping ;) Hope this helps!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!!
Linking this finish to Amanda's, and Sarah's ;)
