Spell It With Moda - Let's Get Started


This week I am starting a new project to celebrate seven years of the Moda Bake Shop. We are going to Spell It With Moda using Zen Chic's soon to be released fabric line, Flow.


It was so fun mixing and matching the Jelly Roll strips trying to decide on a layout.for my quilt. Everywhere there is a strip, there will be a letter. Everywhere there is a business card, there will be a filler block. Do you want to know what it says? Oh, no, no, not so fast. Let's have some fun with this.


Each week, I'll make two or three letters for the quilt. Playing along will be sort of like us playing hangman together. This week I made three Es. Let's look at them closer to see the gorgeous colors and details of the Flow collection.


At the top, we have this pretty light blue E.


It is amazing what can be done with a simple comma on fabric.


The middle E is a yummy orange.


I don't have a list of the formal names for each of these prints so I made up some of my own. This is orange comma fireworks.


And for our last letter of the day, we have blue comma E.


The fun thing about this print is that every now and then there is a backwards comma or a sideways comma. It makes your eye pause for a second and I really like that.


What do you say? Do you want to guess a letter? If you do, just comment and let me know what you want to see. If it's in there, I'll make it for next week. And if not, I'll choose a few of my own.

Do you want to make your own quilt? The letters are available individually on Moda's Pinterest Board.


Or, if you want a quick resource with everything in one place, check out the Spell It With Fabric booklet available at many local quilt shops and online stores. I did a quick Google search and found some great resources for purchasing the booklet.

So, let's have some fun. Pick a letter!

    1. Thanks! It's one of my initials so a natural place to start and one of the easier letters to stitch.

  3. How about T? I'm thinking there's a "the" in there :)
