Sandy’s Moda Holiday Chirstmas Quilt from Layer Cakes

Posted on

My client, Sandy, has declared that she is a true Moda groupie. She said there is something about the fabrics they offer that just pull her it.  This Christmas kit was no exception!

Take a look at how the ornaments in the center are pieced and embellished with a line of embroidery stitches.  Isn’t it clever?

I used a 100% cotton batting and an edge to edge snowflake pantograph on the top.  But you know what is the best design element of all?  The striped bias cut binding.  Isn’t that a perfect  choice for the edges?

Sandy chose to have me machine stitch the binding to the top and she’ll hand stitch it to the back.  I find a lot of my clients prefer me to do attach their binding to the front so I can take care of their mitered corners and the mitered joint where the head/tail meet up.

This quilt is going to add a real festive flair to Sandy’s home this Christmas, don’t you think?
