ABC Birthday - a Quilt Along to celebrate Moda Bake Shop's 7th Birthday!

MBS-ABC-Birthday-QAL-slider-800x420 It's hard to believe, but the Moda Bake Shop turns 7 years in 2016!  To celebrate, some fellow MBS chefs and myself are quilting along to create our own designs using Spell it With Fabric! letter patterns.  Do you have a favorite phrase or quote?  Now is the perfect time to commemorate it in fabric.

The patterns for the letters have been collected and published in a wonderful mini booklet, which is available through your favorite quilt fabric retailer. You can also find links to the individual patterns via the {Spell It With Fabric} Pinterest board. To get started, you will need a jelly roll and some background fabric.  I am using SummerFest by April Rosenthal.  I love the cheery colors!


I have decided that my sewing room needs a new wall-hanging, so I will be making my letters at half the size of the pattern.  (Yes, I may be a bit crazy!).  Below is a peek of my progress so far.


I'll be back soon to share more.  Still not sure how the finished design will turn out, but excited to see it come together.

The Moda Bake Shop Chefs listed below will provide filler block tutorials along the way to go with the letter blocks and we will check in periodically to share how everyone’s quilts are coming along.  There is no end date on this quiltalong. Sew it up quickly or take your time!
