Moda Classics

Several months ago the chairman of our Quilters Guild Service committee gave me five bolts of a Moda line called Classics, a linen/cotton mix. There were three florals & two solids . One of the bolts was unopened; the others were nearly full bolts except for one of the solids. My instructions were to make quilts for the Guild, no time limit.

What fun to have all the fabric I wanted that coordinated! And there was enough for the backings, too! First I cut pieces for Charlotte, a free pattern from Timeless Treasures.

To take advantage of the lovely florals, I designed a Lone Star

& a Carpenter Star, fussy cutting the stars with Jan Krentz’ diamond rulers.

Smaller pieces were cur into Lucky Stars, one of my favorite patterns,

& there was enough left to cut into nine inch squares for this one.

Making quilts is something I love to do, and making them for people in the community who have needs is especially fulfilling.
