Clermont Farms Shower Curtain + Bonus!

A decorative shower curtain that’s simple to construct using a Layer Cake and Jelly Roll. This curtain adds color to your bath and shows off your quilting talents in a whole new way.

1 Clermont Farms Layer Cake by Minick & Simpson
1 Clermont Farms Jelly Roll
4 1/2 yards Clermont Farms solid cream fabric or backing of your choice


Step 1: Arrange all 42 10″ x 10″ Layer Cake samples as pictured below. (I photographed small cuttings so you can see a clearer picture of my rotation). You can create any layout you’d like. It’s a simple matter of arranging them in a manner that appeals to your design sensibility. Note: All of the samples are being used uncut from the Layer Cake.

Step 2: Mark each row in a naming convention that works best for you. I like to use small sticky notes marked with the row number and the direction in which the blocks should be sewn together. Typically, I start from the left side, and collect each block going across to the end of the row. Therefore, the bottom sample in my stack is the last block in the row. When I’m ready to sew I can simply layout each row and I’m ready to begin. Another trick I use is to take a quick picture of the whole layout. It’s a fast and effective means of double-checking.

Step 3: First sew each of the 6 rows across.

Step 4: Now connect each of the rows together to complete the layout. Remember to insure the connecting joint points are meeting up snuggly. You can feel if they’re in place by rubbing your finger along the two joints. They’ll fit together like a glove when matched up. Pop a pin into each joint so they won’t slip while sewing across the row. If you feel a lump, it’s most likely going to create a problem when the two seams are sewn together. The key to an eye catching set of blocks is having the points meeting up perfectly. It’s just a matter of taking your time.

Step 5: For the bottom and final row, l created a design element to add interest. Using the Clermont Farms Jelly Roll, select the first 5 patterns represented in each row vertically starting from the top. Pictured below are the patterns for the first block.

Step 6: Sew the 5 patterns together to create a block.

Step 7: The 5 patterns will yield a block a bit larger then 10″ x 10″. Simply trim the block on both the left and right sides by approximately 1/4″.

Step 8: Sew the final row together, but turn every other block horizontally to create the decorative effect.

Step 9: Sew the the row to the bottom of the curtain.

Side Borders

Step 1: Measure the sides of your curtain. My measurement was 66 1/2″.

Step 2: From the Jelly Roll, select 12 patterns to be used for the side borders. I decided to use a blue combination on the outer border column, and a beige combination on the inside border column.

Pictured below are my selections.

Step 3: Each column will have 3 patterns sewn together vertically to make the column. Determine the rotation of the patterns and cut each 23″ x 2 1/2″ (the width of the Jelly Roll).

Step 4: Sew the 3 patterns together to create 4 vertical border strips.

Step 5: Sew the coordinating left and right panels together (meeting the joints at each intersection).

Step 6: Sew the completed border to each side of your shower curtain.

The left border completed and sewn to the shower curtain.

Top and Bottom Borders

Step 1: Select another 12 patterns from the Jelly Roll for the top and bottom borders. Again I decided to use a blue combination on the outer border column and this time chose a red combination on the inside border

Pictured below are my selections.

Step 2: Follow Steps 3 through 6 from the Side Border directions.

The bottom border completed and sewn to the shower curtain.


Step 1: Measure your shower curtain top both by length and width.

Step 2: Determine the fabric you’d like to use as the backing. I used Clermont Farms in the solid cream. Measure out the length of your quilt and add approximately 3 inches to both the top and bottom. Use your new total measurement and layout the backing fabric. There are many ways to make a backing. In this project, I chose to sew selvage to selvage. After opening up my sewed fabric, my width is clearly achieved. Since I’m going to quilt the project, the seam line will not be noticeable. Additionally, this side of the curtain will be facing the plastic shower lining so no worries at all!

Step 3: I want my curtain to have flow, and also have ease of movement. I did as little quilting as possible. The more you quilt the firmer the piece becomes as a whole. I chose a simple diamond pattern that intersects every other block. I also added a free motion pattern around all 4 borders to add an accent.

Step 4: I used the random leftover strips from my Jelly Roll to create a classic binding.


Step 1: Measure across the top of the shower curtain.
Note: After quilting and binding, the measurement will change a bit.

Step 2: Divide the amount of shower rings by the total width of your curtain. Mine measured 72″. I allowed for 3 inches on each side and spaced out the rings in 6″ intervals. I used household clothes pins to mark the buttonhole position.

Step 3: Practice some test buttonholes on a “sandwich” in a similar weight as your curtain. I used some leftover fabric and a piece of my batting. It’s important to play around with buttonhole sizes. I used my current shower curtain as a guide.

Step 4: I used a buttonhole length of 3/4″. I selected the setting for a buttonhole normally used for heavier material. If you have your manual, it’s a good idea to check out the buttonhole options you have available on your machine.

Step 5: After you sew the buttonholes be extra careful when opening up the seam. You don’t want to cut outside the sewn seams.

Wash and dry your shower curtain as you would a quilt. Hang it up and give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.


Bonus: Matching Guest Hand Towel

Step 1: Purchase a hand towel of your choice. I used a simple white towel. The Clermont Farms fabrics will add both color and interest to the border.

Step 2: Select 11 patterns from the Jelly Roll and cut them 2″ x 2″.

Step 3: Sew them across horizontally.

Step 4: Press a seam 3/8″ on the reverse side of all 4 sides of the row.

Step 5: Align and measure your newly sewn row in relationship to the width of your towel. Trim accordingly.

Step 6: Pin the row to the border of the hand towel and sew a 1/4″ seam around the row. Sewing at 1/4″ will give the edge a nice lip to add a decorative touch.

Presto! You have a hand towel ready for your guests.

1 shower curtain. Measures 72″ x 72″. Machine washable.

Clermont Farms Quilted Tote Bag

This Americana themed, multipurpose tote is suitable for the pool, the green market, or a fun day trip.

1 Clermont Farms Jelly Roll by Minick & Simpson
1 yard Clermont Farms solid navy
1 yard cotton batting

Front Panel

Step 1: Cut Squares 2 ½” x 2 ½”

Choose four strips of fabric from the jelly roll. I used the dark blue paisley, the white and blue tossed plums, the blue with white sprays of flowers, and the dark blue lattice with roses. The fabric width is already 2 ½”, so simply lay out each strip on your cutting board, measure out 2 ½” across the length, and cut away.

Using my patterns, cut 12 squares of the dark blue paisley, 12 squares of the white and blue tossed plums, 6 squares of the blue with white sprays of flowers, and 6 squares of the dark blue lattice with roses.

Step 2: Layout Your Panel

Step 3: Sew the Squares Together

Sew right sides of two squares together using a ¼” seam allowance. You can chain piece if you like. Use a dry iron or finger press your seam allowances to the darker side. Keep the layout photo as a handy reminder. Sometimes distractions come up and those tiny squares get jumbled up.

Now sew the completed set of two squares into blocks of four. Make sure your seams interlock. I rub my fingers together over the joining seam prior to sewing. If they are locked in, you will be able to feel a smooth connection. Gently pull the two pieces apart to see if the join is locked. The locked joins will yield a sharp intersecting point on the face. Again press the seams to one side after finishing.

Join the three sets of blocks across into three rows. Press the seams to one side for each row.

Finally, join the three rows together. It is a good idea to pin the joins for the final row of sewing to keep the intersections aligned.

Voila! The Front Panel is complete.

Step 4: Add a Border

Measure the length of the left side of your panel (mine was 12 ½”), and cut a solid red strip from the jelly roll the same size. Now cut the strip in half lengthwise. I ended up with two strips measuring 12 ½” x 1 ¼”. With right sides together, sew the left and right borders to your panel. Now repeat these steps for the top and bottom borders of your panel.

Back Panel

Repeat the steps for the front panel to create your back panel. I chose different fabrics, and used the lighter blue paisley, the white and blue tossed miniatures, the light blue and white rose, the lighter blue lattice with roses, and solid cream for the border. Cut 12 squares of the paisley, 12 squares of the miniatures, 6 squares of the roses, and 6 squares of the lattice.

Here is the layout for the Back Panel.

Side Panels

Measure the sides of your front and back panels. They should be approximately the same size, but no worries if they are a bit off, we are going to trim the pieces before construction.

For each side, choose four strips of fabric from the jelly roll, and cut to the larger measurement (better too big than too small). The fabrics I chose are pictured. Straight stitch these four strips together to create the side panel. Repeat these steps to create your second side panel. I chose to use the red paisley and the tossed plum on beige for both. The variation is in the colors of the blue and white roses and lattice with roses. In one panel I used the lighter blue and in the other the darker.

Side Panel One

Side Panel Two

Bottom Panel

Measure the bottom of your front and back panels. Choose four strips of fabric, cut to the larger measurement, and straight stitch together. Pictured are my selections.


Now the fun begins!

We are going to treat each of the five panels as if they are mini quilts. Cut a piece of the 1 yard of solid navy so that it is 1” larger on all sides of your first panel to be quilted. Then cut a piece of cotton batting the same size. Make a quilt sandwich by positioning your solid navy face down on your mat, followed by the batting and the panel face up. Secure your sandwich with pins. Quilt your panel as you like. I used a simple “stitch in the ditch” approach with each panel. Sandwich and quilt the rest of your panels.

After you finish quilting, trim up each panel. This is the point where you can ensure the pieces are all the same size.


Decide which edge you would like to be the top of your front, back, and side panels because we are about to give them a nice finish. Measure the top of the panel you are working on and cut a piece of solid navy to fit its width. My first panel measured 13 ½”, so I cut a strip 13 ½” x 2 ½”. Now press that strip in half, and sew the raw edge to the raw edge of the panel like a quilt binding. After adding the binding, turn the strip and hand stitch binding to the back lining. Repeat for the three remaining panels. The bottom panel does not need to be bound because it will be sewn to the body of the tote bag on all four sides.


Cut two strips of solid navy to 21” x 4”. This will yield a handle approximately 8” in height from the top of the bag. Fold each strip in half lengthwise and press. Open up each strip and fold the sides to meet in the middle. The pressed fold will help to gauge the center.

Cut two strips of batting to 21” x 1” and tuck it inside flush against one side. Sew the open side closed. To keep it balanced in appearance, sew another line down the opposite side.

Measure 3” from each end of the top front and top back panels. Pin the handle so the end of the handle meets the bottom of the solid border. Make sure the handles are not twisted prior to sewing. Simply hold it up and you will see if it is not correct. Using a “stitch box”, sew each handle to the top of your panel.


We are going to put the bag together using a binding to join and hide the exposed seams. Choose eight strips from the jelly roll, or use solid navy if you want the inside of the tote bag to be all one color.

(Before continuing read “Option” at the end of the instructions. It may be of interest.)

Start by sewing the front panel to the bottom panel. Measure the edge of the bottom panel lengthwise. Cut a binding strip the measure length by 2 ½”. Press the strip in half. Sew it to the edge of the bottom panel. Place the bottom panel on top of the front panel with the sewn binding on the bottom.

Turn the two panels over so the lining side of the front panel is now facing you. Reach under and turn the binding around to the lining side of the front panel. Pin the binding to the lining side for sewing.

Sew both pieces together on the lining side. Take your time and make sure you are sewing through both panels.

When you finish and open it up, you will see that the two panels are now joined and the seam is covered by the binding.

Now assemble the back panel to the bottom using the same procedure.

Pictured is the front panel attached to the bottom with the back panel ready to be assembled.

Next add the two side panels.

We are almost done. Take a breath, you are doing great!

Now it is time to make this guy into a real tote. In order to sew the side seams to the bottom, twist the side panel and place it on the one side of the bottom panel. Add the binding as you did before. You will be constructing the balance of the seams working in a clockwise fashion.

After all of the pieces are joined with seams your new tote is done. Your tote is completely washable. Since it is quilted, each wash will enhance your design.


If you would like your bag to stand up in a more uniform manner, add the seams to the outside of the panels instead of the inside. The photo shows the bag inside out. You will see it stands up proud and tall. By adding the seams to the outside, the bad is able to stand on its own. The seams on the inside give the face side a clean look. You are the designer. It is all up to you.

1 tote bag. Measures 13”W x 13”H (excluding handles) x 7”D. Machine washable.

Endless Possibilities

Hi everybody! It’s the Midnight Mama back again to share another tutorial with you here on the Moda Bake Shop! This one is for a contrast quilt using half square triangles (HSTs). It has endless possibilities of piecing arrangements. By making one very simple block, you can create many different designs.

You will need light fabric squares and an equal number of dark or printed fabric squares. Get your squares and let’s get started!

4 charm packs of Bella Solids in cream

1 layer cake of Clermont Farms

4 1/2 yards of backing fabric

2/3 yard of binding fabric

Cut your 10″ layer cake squares into quarters. Each square will measure 5″.

~ NOTE ~ One layer cake cut into quarters = 4 charm packs. ~

On the wrong side of the fabric, draw a diagonal line from the top corner to bottom corner of each light charm square.

Put a dark or printed charm square right sides together with a light charm square. Sew 1/4″ on each side of the diagonal line.
Cut apart on the drawn diagonal line.
Now you have 2 HST sets. Press towards the dark or printed fabric.

Repeat these steps for all of the charm squares.

Now comes the hard part . . . deciding which layout to use! To pick a layout, I taped an extra piece of batting to the wall. My HSTs stick to the batting so I can arrange them in different layouts. I have a few layouts below, but you can make your own unique design. You can create “Endless Possibilities” with these HSTs! Have fun!

Piece, layer, quilt, and bind!

A 72″ x 72″ quilt with “Endless Possibilities.”

American Pinwheels

Hi! It’s Crystal again from Hendrixville! Patriotism is very strong in my family. My father served in the Vietnam war and my brother in law is currently serving in the Utah National Guard. I have great respect for all of the soldiers and the sacrifices they make for us. I made this quilt for my brother in law and his wife, and would like to dedicate this quilt for all the soldiers out there!

2 charm packs of Clermont Farms by Minick and Simpson
7/8 yards red color
2 1/2 yards different red color 
2 1/2 yards dark blue
3 yards light blue color 
4 yards cream color
7/8 y any fabric for binding
yards any color for backing

(All of the colors of fabric were taken from the Clermont Farms collection by Minick and Simpson)

This quilt is mostly made up of 2 different blocks. Each block will finish as a 10 1/2″ square. Use a 1/4″ seam throughout the quilt.  
Lets start with the large Pinwheel block. 

Out of the red and the dark blue colors, cut (56) 5 7/8″ squares in each color.

  Draw a diagonal line on the back of all the red blocks.

Place the red block (face down) on top of the blue block and pin. Do this for all the blocks. I find that if I pin it at the top and the bottom it holds the blocks together nicely.

Sew a line 1/4″ away from your diagonal line on each block. Once done with one side, turn around and sew along the other side as well.

Take your rotary scissors and cut on the diagonal line.

Press open each block. I like to press the seams open for pinwheels.

Once all of your blocks are pressed, layout 4 blocks in the pattern above.

Sew two blocks together and press open seams. Trim your “ears” off.

I like to keep my piles like this, it helps me keep track of all of my pieces and I already have it laid out for the block.

Now take your two pieces and pin together. I start out in the middle and line up my seams.

Sew and press open seams.

If you have your seams open, I find quilting is easier.

Now you have one block done. Make a total of 28 of these blocks.

Once you have finished the large blocks, move on to the Pinwheel in a Star block (I am not 100% sure of the real name of this block).

We will use the cream color for the background and in the little pinwheels. Cut (56) 3 3/8″ squares in the cream color.

Cut (112) 3″ squares in the cream color.

Cut (28) 6 1/4″ squares in the cream color.

Cut (56) 3 3/8″ squares out of the red color (Use the 7/8 yd piece).

Cut (112) 3 3/8″ squares out of your light blue color.

Lets start with the little pinwheels. Follow the same steps as the large pinwheel.

You will need 28 little pinwheels.

Now take your light blue squares and cut them in half diagonally. Yes, cut all 112 squares in half!

Then take your 6 1/4″ square and cut it in half diagonally.

Once you finished cutting it, rotate the square (line it back up) and cut it in half diagonally again. Or you can cut each triangle in half. Do whatever makes you more comfortable.

Take a light blue triangle and align the long side with one of the short sides of the cream triangle. You can pin it in place now if you like.

Sew 1/4″ away from the edge of the triangle.

Press open the triangles BEFORE you sew the second light blue triangle onto the other side.

Sew the second triangle on the other side like the first side. Then press open. Now you have 1 sidepiece for your star.

At this point I like to layout my block. Use the cream 3″ squares for the corners.

Sew together to make 3 columns.

Now pin the side columns to the centerpiece. I start by pinning the seams first, to make sure they line up correctly.

Press open. Now you have your little pinwheel in a star block done! You will need 28 total of these blocks.

Now layout all of your blocks in an alternating fashion. The layout will be 7×8. Sew the blocks together to make rows, and then sew the rows together. Make sure to press.

With your light blue fabric, cut 8 strips 3 1/2″ x WOF (width of fabric).

It doesn’t matter which side you sew on first, but this is the layout I chose. Sew 2 strips together to make 4 long strips.

Then take your charm packs and sew together a random pattern (or not) to make a long strip to make a second border for your quilt top. (Your row of charm packs will NOT line up perfectly. You will end up trimming a little bit off one of the charm pieces).

Once you have sewn on your second border and pressed, cut 9 strips of 4 1/2″x WOF out of the light blue fabric.

Once again layout your border however you like. Sew it on and press like you did your first border.

After all of that work, you will have one quilt top done!

Baste, quilt and bind as you desire.
