And my original plan was not to make 2 quilts. But I knew I wanted to make the first one in classic Red/White/and Black. So I grabbed my stashed layer cake of Shades of Black by Me and My Sister Designs from 2013 (yes, It had been stashed for a little bit :) and started with the blacks and whites. But I didn't want to include the grey squares and needed just a few more black/white prints. So then I remembered I had a half a Layer Cake left over from another project of Authentic Ect. by Sweetwater . Perfect!!! But then I had a few Green Squares, Solid White Squares, and the aforementioned Grey Squares left. And I didn't want them all to end up in the scrap buckets (those are already overflowing) and so ya, a Second Moda Love quilt came to be. And I just love it!!!!
Again, I didn't mind piecing two at all, because these are really, really fun to make. I think it was just what my little creative heart needed in the midst of a little craziness. Just something fun and fast that I didn't need to think to much about and could just enjoy the process of stitching away. Now, it's time to make some backs and get these two quilted up. They will be ready for gifting in no time ;)
And if you want to try out the Moda Love Pattern and join in the Sew Along, you can download it for free right here. The Pattern has 3 sets of instructions. So you can make a big 72" square one like me using Layer Cakes, or make a 32" quilt using Charm Packs, or even a cute little mini finishing at 12" using Mini Charm Packs. Whatever you decide to make, you are sure to have lots of fun!!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
