Moda Bakeshop Summer in the Garden QAL - Jasmine Bonus Block


Hi all - It's Mona here. It's been a minute since my last blog post - wanted to share the fun that's been going on over at Moda Bake Shop!

The Bake Shop has been having a Summer in the Garden Quilt-along!

The quilt-along has been somewhat of a mystery, in that you don't know what the blocks are going to be until they are posted on Mondays. I'm excited to share that today's bonus block is by yours truly (that's me, in case you hadn't figured that out!!).
My block for the quilt-along is Jasmine. For the this fun project, most of the Bakers have been using Lady Bird fabric by Crystal Manning for Moda.  I decided I wanted to make a quilt of all solids, so I opted to use the Bella Solids that coordinate with those  gorgeous fabrics.

Here you can see what the Jasmine Block looks like with the Lady Bird Fabrics:


And here is my final block using the Moda Bella Solids:


Here are the instructions for the block (you can see the full post on the Moda Bake Shop page - it has a printable pattern there). 

Half-Square Triangles (HST)
  • Create 4 HST’s 
  • Fabric 1 - (1) 8” square 
  • Fabric 2 - (1) 8” square 
  • Place RST (right sides together) 
  • Sew around the edge using ¼” seam 
  • Cut on the diagonals 
  • Press to the dark side 
  • Trim to 5” block 



Rectangle Blocks
  • Fabric 1 - (2) 3 ½ x 5” rectangle
  • Fabric 2 - (2) 3 ½ x 5” rectangle

Hourglass Block
  • Create 1 Hourglass block 
  • Fabric 1 - (1) 5” square 
  • Fabric 2 - (1) 5” square 
  • Draw diagonal on back of fabric 1 
  • Place right sides together
  • Sew ¼” seam on both sides of diagonal 
  • Cut along diagonal 
  • Press to the dark side, resulting in HST 
  • Draw diagonal on back of one of the HST’s 
  • Place HST’s RST so that fabrics are opposite and seams nest Sew ¼” seam on both sides of diagonal 
  • Cut along diagonal 
  • Press seams open 
  • Trim to 3 ½” square 
  • (You will have 2 blocks - only need one)




Assemble the block as below:



I really like how the solids are working for the quilt. Below, you'll see some of the other blocks I've completed. (The patterns for all of these are on Moda Bake Shop site.)






It's never to late to sew along! Let me know what you think!!

Until next time - blessings & peace - and happy crafting!

Jelly Rolls for less than $16 shipped! Save 75% on these and more

OOPS! IT'S ACTUALLLY LESS THAN $16 SHIPPED PLUS TAX!! I DIDN'T INCLUDE THE TAX AMOUNT - MY APOLOGIES!!

I'm all about saving money!

I love fabric but I also love to save money. Annie's Kit Clubs is offering 75% off the first month of their clubs right now. That means you can get some excellent deal on fabric and more.

I just signed up for the "Fabric Strip Pack" on the Annie's site. (You can see my receipt below.) The Fabric Strip Pack is usually $39.99. With the code "Share75", you can get the jelly roll for $9.99. Shipping is $5.95 - that makes the jelly roll $15.94 plus tax!! 

You can cancel at any time. I recently signed up for their Fat Quarter Club. The fabric was gorgeous but I decided that I didn't want to continue in the club. I received my first shipment and was able to cancel without any problem.

UPDATE: I received my jelly roll today! (see the picture above) 

All you need to do is add the kit you want to your cart. Add the code "Share75" to your order. If you get to the checkout section and there is already a code in the box, just hit "remove" - then you can add your code (see below).
Annie's has a bunch of different clubs to offer - you could sign up for all of them and save 75% off each if you really wanted to! There are crochet clubs, knitting clubs, quilting clubs, kids crafts clubs, and so much more.

If you order more than one club, you only pay for ONE shipping charge!! (See below)

Let me know - did you sign up? If so, for which one? 


Oh - while you're here, you can also get 10 Fat Quarters for only $20!! (update - no longer available) 

And finally, on another note, I wanted to share ... I had someone reach out to me to ask if this was a scam. While anyone reading this blog may not know me personally, I can assure you that I will not knowingly post scam items. I will only share ideas and deals that I would like to get. In fact, I signed up for 3 different kits through this particular company. I am a small business owner who is trying to make a living through sewing, quilting, fabric sales, and sharing deals, etc. I may share links to items where I might make a small amount of money, but only if I truly believe that it's a good deal. That's all.

Until next time - blessings & peace - and happy crafting!
