Moda Friendship Quilt Along

Welcome!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  I had so much fun playing with my new fabric line -Round Robin.  The fabric will be in stores until April.
Fat quarter bundle give away!
























The block I am sharing with you today is fairly simple as I am still perfecting my piecing skills.
This is also the block pattern I used in my free table runner pattern using Round Robin fabric. Click HERE to download the table runner pattern.


Click HERE to download the quilt block directions. I am sorry that some of you are having difficulty downloading this pattern.  Feel free to send me your email through the "contact me" tab and I will email the pattern to you directly.  

After successfully sewing this table runner I had enough confidence to attack a lap quilt!
This is also a free pattern.  The center blocks are fussy cut and I really like how that turned out. The quilt (below) was beautifully quilted by QuiltRocker (thank you Kathy!)
Click HERE for the free lap quilt pattern.
43" x 52" - just the right size for Olivia!

Robin's Garden Gate - FREE PATTERN

I have 4 kits available for this quilt!  The kit includes the backing and binding fabric.  Click HERE to start shopping






































This apron and pot holder pattern uses the panel from Round Robin.  This is a free pattern too!  Click HERE.

Check with your local quilt shop to see if they have this line on order.  If not, it's not too late!

My newsletter will be going out shortly.  If you like free tea towel embroidery patterns, sneak peeks and coupon codes make sure you sign up.  Just click on the "newsletter" tab in the right column at the top.

Check out the other designers sharing today -
Edyta of Laundry Basket and Lauren and Jesse Jung.





Thank you for all of your comments!  The winner of the fat quarter bundle is Lesley and she has been contacted.  Thanks again!

Pin It!
