Moda Bake Shop


Today is a big day!
 I'm excited to have you see my debut creation for the Moda Bake Shop
 Love Beads.
I hope that you will hop on over to the Moda Bake Shop blog to see the pattern
 and say "hi" in the comments. Pretty please!
 The fabric is Oh, My! by Sanae and Moda Bella solid in butter. It's pretty wild fabric, which works really well for the 1970's inspired idea of love beads which were popular in that decade...(ask me how I know!)
 It  takes two charm packs to make this lap size quilt. The cutting and piecing is easy, making the pattern suitable for a beginner but fun for any quilter.
 I used the leftover beads and some selvage on the backing of my sample quilt. Don't you love that wild large print!
I have two extra Oh, My! charm packs ( enough to make Love Beads) to give away.
If you would like to win these,
 visit the Bake Shop blog and take a look around.
Come on back here and leave me a comment telling me that you saw my quilt.
For a second chance to win, be a follower of Lollyquiltz and tell me so in a separate comment. I'll leave the giveaway open until Saturday. Make sure that I can contact you by email if your name is drawn.

Thanks for stopping by!
Please note: the giveaway is now closed.

  1. I went by the moda bake shop and saw your quilt. I like the way you used white (off white?) to tone down the wild colors/prints. Love Beads is a groovy quilt!

  79. this quilt is fabulous! I was just reading the instructions over on the bakeshop site as I'm about to dive in here and make one for my dd...I noticed what i think *might* be an error....
    in the making the chain part you say to use the cuttings from the charm squares that are 3.5 by 1.5.... would they not be 1.5 by 5inches?
    just thought I'd mention it..Great pattern!
