Hey there, I am thrilled to be able to share with you my very first recipe for the Moda Bake Shop. I have been quilting for over 17 years, with the last few years being an exponential growth of the art form in my life. Please feel free to visit my blog at Blue Nickel Studios for other free patterns that I have available there under the tab labeled Downloads, as well as the fairly regular posts where I share my thoughts about life, family, quilting, and design.
1 Jelly Roll
1 Charm Pack
1 half yard of Red print for the binding (OR I used one Maison de Garance fat quarter and the matching Jelly Roll strip that I had set aside)
From your Maison De Garance Charm Pack, choose 3 brown charms and 3 red charms, then trim off 1/2″ from one side.
Keeping the Jelly Roll strips in sets, sew a pair of Beige 5″ strips to the two 5″ sides of one of your trimmed Brown Charms, and repeat with the other two trimmed Brown Charms and Beige 5″ strip pairs. Do the same with the trimmed Red Charms and the pairs of 5″ Brown strips.
Matching the Beige Charm Squares to the Red 5″ Fat Quarter Squares and the Beige 5″ Fat Quarter Squares to the Brown Charm Squares right side together. Sew 1/4 ” away from the pencil line on the Beige pieces on both sides of the line as shown:
Press the Red/Beige units open, pressing 6 towards the Red side and 6 toward the Beige side…
Trim all of these units to 4.5″ squares as shown:
Sew these Triangle/Square units together, matching seams as shown with the pressed diagonal seams going in opposite directions as shown:
Sew these along the Beige sides on the Beige/Red units and the Brown sides of the Brown/Beige units so that you end up with these units:
Sew these Triangle units to the Square in a Square units you made in the beginning:
