Moda Bakeshop - Down on the Farm

Good Thursday morning everyone!!!

I'm so excited to have another recipe for the Bakeshop and I just have to say that it was amazing fun to work with the beautiful reds, creams and tans from the Midwinter Reds collection.

I think that one of the first blocks I ever made was a log cabin, so this project was certainly a "remember when" type of quilt.  The paper piecing is something that I have been doing on and off for quite a number of years and some of these same shapes can be found in a couple of my older patterns that will soon be almost ten years old.

This is one of the featured quilts that we will be using for a workshop that is coming up at the end of October.  There are close to 90 Canadian gals coming to join us in putting together a few versions of this design.  We will be doing miniatures framed in barn board, an appliqu├ęd version and quite a few breakout sessions to teach beginners the log cabin block; a paper piecing session and also an applique session.  It's going to be a very fun and busy two days, but so worth it when we get to see what everyone comes up with at the end of each day.

I hope that you enjoy the "bakeshop" version of Down on the Farm and I would love to hear from you if you get a chance to make this project.

Happy Quilting!!

Love it! Could you put a photo of it on your website that shows the whole quilt? I have a different layer cake that I would like to use but need to make decisions on the center squares, etc.

Your quilt is just beautiful! Such an ideal farm scene - I think it would take a whole team of landscapers to get mine looking like that!
