NEW Moda Bake Shop: Auntie's Diamonds & Giveaway!

Hey ya'll and welcome to my blog!  My NEW Moda Bake Shop project is up today and it's called Auntie's Diamonds! I am so excited to share it with you! If you're already a follower be sure to hop on over to MBS and check out the free pattern! And if you're new, WELCOME! 

This quilt was super fun to make and it uses one Layer Cake and half of a Charm Pack plus border fabrics! I used the fabric line Sophie by Chez Moi and let me tell ya, this fabric is so pretty! It measures 57" X 88" so it's a super cozy lap quilt OR you could even put it on a twin size bed! 

If you make one, I'd LOVE to see it, so please add a photo to my Flickr Group!!

This last photo is the reason I'm calling it Auntie's Diamonds.  I quilted my sister's name into the inner border (SURPRISE LAUREL!!!!!) and she doesn't know until now!!!  I plan on giving this to her after my son is born at his baptism because she is going to be his Godmother as well and his awesome Auntie!!  SURPRISE AGAIN LAUREL!!!!  :)  Love you!

Quilt Market part two...quilts

Here is just a sample of some the awesome quilts at Market!

I'm doing baby's nursery in Dr. Seuss/primary colors so of course I had to take some photos of the Dr. Seuss display!

I had to take a photo of this quilt because it looks like my Ozzie!

Gorgeous colors!

That cobalt blue is stunning!

Gotta love the cardinals!

Love the blue and green!

This quilt was awesome, it's hard to tell in the photo but all of the yellow are different folds (this photo is for you Jess!)
