Anyone else out there have a sweet tooth? Since I began quilting (ahem, quite a few years ago), I have enjoyed collecting all the sweet precuts that Moda has lovingly prepared and I even came up with a few of my own recipes for the Moda Bake Shop in recent years.
So it should come as no surprise that when I saw this sampler at Quilt Market using their newest Color Cut Dessert Rolls, I knew I needed to make one!
And I thought some of you might want to make one too. And then I thought, "this would be fun to make with friends ..." and here we are!
I'm so excited to share we will be hosting a Quilt Along for the Dessert Sampler!
Before I go any further, I wanted to share what I love so much about this quilt...
First, these Dessert Rolls are special in that they contain prints from a variety of Moda designers and collections as opposed to being all from the same collection. If you've ever been stumped by mixing and matching, this is sure to build some confidence in your own sewing kitchen.
And second, the sampler is a great way to try out lots of different blocks without having to make a bajillion of the same block. Sometimes I get bored (or just plain overwhelmed!) thinking about making 1,000 flying geese! We'll even be using some of Carrie's genius Cupcake Mix Recipe papers to make piecing and trimming a breeze. What an amazing assortment of block recipes you'll have at the end of this project!
Here's what you need to know:
- Kits for this quilt include all the fabric for the top and binding of this 70" x 78" quilt, including Moda's new Color Cuts Dessert Rolls, which are 5" x WOF strips that include prints from various collections and designers within a color way.
- Kits are expected to arrive in April, so we will be starting our sewing May 1st.
- Each week, we will make three blocks and finish up the sampler the last week of July. I'll be sharing a post for each block with tips you might find helpful. And I will also include a fun planning sheet to help you keep track of where you're at in the process.
- There will be prizes along the way!
The gals at Moda were sweet enough to send me a kit a little early and I know you are going to love sewing this gorgeous quilt up!
I can't wait to sew with you this Spring!
