Now that I’m wrapping up my current quilting project, I’m already looking ahead to the next project! I have a whole list going:
- T-Shirt Quilt for my Husband
- This doily quilt (for me)
- Quilt for a friend’s wedding gift
- Quilt for Mike’s cousin’s wedding gift
My list goes in reverse importance order… just when I think I’m getting to the end of my list, new things crop up!
Mike’s cousin is getting married in April across the country in Baltimore, MD. Unfortunately we won’t be able to make it, but I still want to send her a present. I’d like to make this Positively Perfect quilt posted last month over at the Moda Bake Shop:
It looks simple and quick enough, and I love the little plus signs. Mike’s cousin is a nurse so they reminded us of the Red Cross medical symbol. Jelly Rolls were on sale over at Green Fairy Quilts, so I ordered one to make the process even quicker and easier for myself. I ended up ordering Moda’s Cape Ann by Oliver and S:
I love the sweet prints and I think they will translate nicely for this quilt. I think I might make it a little bigger than the pattern calls for by adding another row & column, but I’ll have to see how it goes. Hopefully I can get this one done in time for the wedding!
So usually I don’t blog about this kind of thing, but this time I can’t resist!

I’ve been admiring all of the quilters who have been using Moda fabrics for a while now. When I saw a Sherbet Pips by Moda at my local quilting shop, I snapped it up right away. That’s the fabric on the left. I’m thinking of using this tutorial to make a quilt. On the right is an Alphabet Soup by Riley Blake Designs. So cute!! I haven’t decided what I’m going to do with that fabric yet. I really need to stop buying fabric since I have so much already!
