I'm baking at the Moda Bake Shop today...

...if you are visiting here for the first time and have come from the Moda Bake Shop, welcome to my blog.  If you are a regular follower...welcome and thank you for visiting again.  
It is always fun when you are playing with fabric...and precuts are definitely fun to play with.  In May 2012 I was participating in a quilt-a-long using half square triangles made with 5" charm squares...I had all the hst's made, even had them all trimmed, laid them out on the floor, fully intending to follow along with the quilt-a-long group.  I struggled with this quilt and just wasn't happy with the fabric choices for this quilt-a-long, I picked up the blocks and put them in a pizza box...another UFO was born...out of sight, out of mind.  I abandoned the quilt-a-long June 2012...:o(
This past summer I decided I had to start finishing some of my ufo's, my stack of pizza boxes was getting too tall...out of control.  I had finished a few ufo's and then decided it was time to work on the Fairy Tale Friend hst's...I took all the hst blocks, laid them out on the floor and moved them around many, many times and finally decided on a totally different arrangement from the quilt-a-long.  I like the fabrics with this arrangement so much better.  I had to make a few more hst's from the quilt-a-long requirements...no problem, I still had some charms to work with.  
I bought some of the red pinwheel fabric from Moda's mama said SEW by Sweetwater.  I thought the fabric was perfect...I struggled with the back too and changed my mind and ended with this...
The quilt measures approximately 52" x 52". I used 2 charm packs of Moda's Fairy Tale Friends designed by Sandy Klop for American Jane and 2 charm packs of porcelain #9900-182.  The back is a Bella solid...called Bettys Teal #9900-126, I added some of the the extra charms and a remnant of Moda's Pezzy by Sandy Klop.  It all matched perfect and I love how it all came together...another ufo finished!!

If you would like to make this quilt...Crazyquiltgirl Fabric Shop has the Fairy Tale Friends charm packs and the Honeysweet charm packs that I used on the quilt featured on the Moda Bake Shop.  Corinna also has the Buttermilk Basin Halloween pattern in stock.  It was one of my Wicked Blog Hop projects and that was fun to make too.


Now...if you checked out my quilt on the Moda Bake Shop and stayed with me here you deserve a chance at a giveaway!

2 charm packs of Fairy Tale Friends
3/4 yard of Bella Red or Bella Bettys Teal
...you choose the inner border and binding color

Here's the rules...it's simple...no hoops to jump, I promise.

  • one comment please, duplicates will be deleted before I use Random.org to pick the winner
  • please visit my posting on the Moda Bake Shop
  • come back and leave me a comment.  I will pick the winner from the comments on this posting on November 25.  That is one month before Christmas...I know I will be sewing to the bitter end...are you still sewing for Christmas??

Edited...I'm linking up to crazy mom quilts, Finish it up Friday.

Good luck everyone

This giveaway is now closed

  Happy stitching

I love the pattern. My quilts are done for Christmas, but I still have the binding on them to do. One finished, and four more to go. I also have some socks to finish knitting by Christmas. Thanks for the giveaway.

Pam said...

I love the pinwheel quilt you designed! I have just a few very small projects to finish for Christmas. I have baby quilts I am working on but not gifts for Christmas. Thank you for a chance at the giveaway!

Оксана said...

I saw your post on the Moda Bake Shop, I really liked the design of this quilt, really want to make the same too. I'd love to subscribe to your blog, you have very interesting. Regards, Oksana

Jeanne said...

Beautiful! I love the quilt on the bake shop. I have oodles of quilts to finish so why not one more!

Barbara McD said...

Great pattern! Thanks for sharing!

Yes, I will be sewing until the bitter end!!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Sheryl said...

Hi Pauline, I found you through the Moda Bake shop, I love the quilt you designed in both colour ways, thanks so much for sharing, I will pop in again to visit.... of course I will be sewing up to the bitter end, my husband has banned me from making Christmas gifts because he knows I will still be putting in some last minute stitches late Christmas Eve.... I don't listen to him though....;)

Aimee said...

Lovely quilt. Wonderful pattern, does it work up pretty quick with precuts?
I don't usually do hand made Christmas gifts; I don't have time to make *everyone* something, & if people get left out, there are hurt feelings. So, I'll just be going at my usual pace & not stressing over having a hand made holiday

Nicole said...

Love it. You always do a great job and have great ideas. Keep up the good work and getting those UFO's done. Think, one less box that will need to find a home when you move back to Canada ;)

Carol said...

I have several quilts to finish before Christmas - all for family. I probably won't finish, but I'll try. I need some relatively small and fairly easy quilts to make - this one fits the bill.

Georgi said...

Yep ~ came over here from Moda Bakeshop! Love this quilt design ~ it's definitely going on my "must-have" list! Thanks for the chance ~ fingers crossed. :)

Jeanie said...

Great quilt and tutorial...congrats for being one of Moda Bake Shop's recipes! Love your sweet bears too...they make really cute models! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

Marg Head said...

Beautiful quilts Pauline. I love them all. You have such a talent. I will be working, as usual until the bitter end. Hopefully will get everything done. Can't believe only only 5 weeks to Ho Ho Ho time.

lleblanc_nd said...

Beautiful quilt!! I think I'll go dig out some charm packs. :)

I did see your quilt on the Moda Bake shop. Very pretty. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

nylirrek said...

I love the colors in your quilt and I think I will try to squeeze it in with all of my other things going on. I've made 3 quilts 2 wall hangings and 2 table runners for Christmas so far!!

Julie said...

Cute! I really like the square version. I am not even close to being ready for Christmas!

Mdm Samm said...

could we be more proud of our Pauline …no way…love the square version..

Jacqueline said...

I like the layout of your quilt. I can see another to do quilt being added to my list. Thanks for a chance.

Vicki H said...

Great tutorial and quilt. I am still sewing too, I have to have the out of towners in the mail by Dec 10th so am working on those first and then can finish up the locals.

pat/susie/resortmom said...

I really like your variation on the pattern on your blog! The "sherbet" looking one on Moda Bake Shop is pretty...but I like the bright colors and the narrow sashing on yours! Thanks for the chance to win!

Linda said...

Honeysweet Pinwheel - I love the name and the picture with that gorgeous tree in the background. It's a lovely quilt.

CJ said...

Great quilt! Thanks for sharing the tutorial with us.

Judith Blinkenberg said...

Agree, your quilt is stunning! I love how the white makes it so bright. Perfect timing for this quilt Pauline. I love how it turned out! Congrats to you on the Moda websight. I will make this one.

Deb said...

Your quilt is beautiful! I need to make one of these, just can't decide on what fabric I would use. Congrats on being on being on the Moda Bake Shop.

Katie said...

Adorable!! Both of them although I do prefer the one on your blog. It's scrappiness adds to the charm :) May be time to get out one of my unfinished projects...

Jodi said...

I love you honeysweet version, I am glad you did not give up on the design. Yes, I will be sewing right up to Christmas.

Gran said...

Always sew right up to Christmas. Love both versions!

Barb said...

Saw your recipe on Moda Bake Shop and came over here to check it out too - lovely! One question: why do quilters get so many good gift ideas in the month before Christmas?

Ella said...

Great quilt! I'm still sewing...pouches, gift bags, and quilts!

Emma's Daughter said...

I love the colors in your Moda a Bake Shop quilt! Rcoyle at olemiss dot edu

Lisa Marie said...

Your quilt is lovely and the tutorial is great. I like the Fairy Tale Friends version best because the brighter colors appeal to me. Sewing for Christmas? Yes, of course. I start early and go to the last minute anyway! There are always so many gifts I want to make. Thanks for sharing.

Createology said...

Your quilts and tutorial are amazing. Such a lot of work and the result is beautiful. You should be very proud. Wonderful give also. Creative Stitching Bliss...

kathy said...

Love the quilt you posted on the Moda Bake Shop. American Jane fabric is always so wonderful. I'm glad I found your blog. As for Christmas, I have many things yet to create, but I have a new granddaughter who is to arrive 5 days before Christmas. So her special quilt will come first. I did get the kids stockings done already.

Siouxzq64@gmail.com said...

Love the patterns, and the honeysweet fabric is gorgeous.

Rebecca Stevens said...

Thanks for a chance at wonderful give away. I found your blog from Moda BakeShop and love the pattern. Thanks for sharing!

KatieQ said...

Unfortunately I haven't started my Christmas sewing yet. I promised myself that I would start tomorrow. Of course, I have said that for the last month.

wipgirl said...

This is a really gorgeous quilt! When I first opened the Moda Bake Shop page, I thought it was a Fig Tree quilt because it looked like the type of pattern they produce, on top of using fabric from Joanna Figueroa. Perfect match of fabric and pattern, anyway.

VickiT said...

Your quilt is just gorgeous Pauline! I really love those fabrics a lot. I've always loved American Jane fabric collections. I can't recall any of hers that I didn't love. I would be thrilled to win your giveaway. Thank you so much.

Linda Fleming said...

Wonderful quilt...I read all the instructions on Moda Bake Shop...I have a Honeysweet Layer cake...I guess I could chop it up to get charm squares!

Kimberly said...

This may be my favorite out of the Moda Bake Shop projects that I have seen. Thank you for sharing!

Barb in Mi said...

Coming over from Moda Bake shop: love your pinwheels. And yes, I am still sewing for christmas... Thanks for a chance!

Jodi said...

I love your quilt, thanks so much for sharing it in the Bake Shop. I will be sewing until the last moment I am sure. Hopefully it won't be the sleep deprived baking and sewing crazy fest at the last minute that it was last year... maybe I should stop reading blogs and start stitching now :)

Qltr89 said...

I really love the quilt recipe you baked. It seems so easy to make. I also like your smaller version; perfect for a baby quilt. Thank you for sharing and for the chance to win.

Deb said...

Beautiful quilts! Looking forward to trying out the pattern! Christmas is coming way to quickly and I just don't seem to have enough hours in a day! Yikes! Thanks for the chance to win!

Quilt Monkey said...

I adore this quilt! I hopped over here from the Moda Bake Shop website. I totally caught my eye and now I want to make one right away. Of course, I also have 50 other quilts I want to make right away, but I think this one will move up the list fast. Thanks for a wonderful pattern.

Sallie said...

I like the way you bake! :) Thanks for sharing!

Robyn Miller said...

Loved your quilt on the Moda Bakeshop! It immediately went into my bookmark folder for quilts I want to make, then I followed the link to your blog here!

Karen said...

This is my first bistro your blog, and I did come from the Moda Bake Shop.. I love both quilts! I am a new quilter and have not tried hst's yet, but after the 3 (5?) little projects, I have a couple of quilts in mind that do use them. Thank you for the chance to win. I also love your idea of pizza boxes for your works in progress. Awesome! I bet they would fit in my wire cube shelves too!

StitchinByTheLake said...

What a beautiful quilt Pauline - and I love the way it's pictured with the teddy bears. :) blessings, marlene

the girlfriend gap said...

This is really cute ! I love pinwheels and miss Joanna at Fig Tree so win win with me. Congrats on the recipe at Moda Bake Shop. Janita

Amber Zona said...

I love this quilt! I "might" have some charm packs in my stash--would still be thrilled to win these!

Am I still sewing for Christmas? No, because I haven't started! ACK!

Karen said...

Hi Pauline. I have been away on babysitting duties. What a lovely surprise to come back and see you featured at Moda Bake Shop.
Congratulations!!! Your quilt looks wonderful and you have written a great pattern. I really like the end result with your layout. I love working with HSTs so this one suits me perfectly.
I wish you luck with the rest of the projects in those pizza boxes.

Bonnie Pfrimmer said...

What a pretty quilt and the pinwheels are just perfect in this quilt. As always, love the bears. Thank you for all you do to inspire us to keep on sewing and quilting. Love your blog.

Lynn Koeppen said...

I checked out your quilt on MBS. I love it! I followed the link to your blog! It a nice one I will continue to visit! Thanks for the inspiration!

Judith Blinkenberg said...

I just want to tell you how much I like this quilt. I save most all the MBS patterns and some I print when I am serious to make it. I have printed your pattern and I have put this quilt in my Favorites to remind myself to make this as soon as we are settled. We are moving and it has been hard. The older I get the harder it is and we know for sure we will be moving next year at this time because the house we rented (I have 20 chickens and no one will rent to us because) is on a hill with lots of stairs. I will probably rehome the girls. I have decided I want a nicer place to be settled where I can sew. But, I will make this quilt next year. I have these charm packs and many more. I want to say thank you to you! I love this pattern.

Jeane said...

I love every kind of pinwheel possible and your''s is no exception. This will definitely be on my 2014 to do list. I really enjoyed visiting your blog.

Christa Hitchcock said...

Love the pinwheels and especially the narrow sashing/border with the little cornerstones! (And the photographs are always so inviting!)

Janet said...

I'm THRILLED with your MBS pattern, altho I think I'll do this one on your blog ... this solved my "what's a quick baby quilt that I can do with a layer cake" ... this was PERFECT!

And I'd love to win the giveaway ... thanks for the opportunity!

suesmom said...

Lovw both quilts. They look easy and fun. The best Christmas treat would be to win!

Kristin said...

I've also been working on finishing up some UFOs, but I keep on seeing new patterns I want to try. I have fabrics picked out already for your other MBS pattern (Cobblestone path), and now you have me thinking about trying out this pattern (I've never done triangles before!). Keep up the good work! You're getting so much accomplished!!

gpc said...

Love your quilts (always).
