Moda Love Quilt

I was looking for a charm pack quilt to make as a baby gift and found the Moda Love Quilt (click for free PDF download link!). Since Moda makes most of the charm packs sold, their website is a great source of additional patterns that utilize all their precut shapes (eg charm packs, layer cakes, jelly rolls, etc).

If you Google or Instagram search for Moda Love Quilt, you'll be able to see lots of other designs based on the same pattern. This is really a great pattern that looks so different dependent on fabric choice and placement!

All my fabrics for the quilt top are ready to go!
For my quilt, I used fabrics from Spirit by Lila Tueller for the top and binding. The backing is an organic cotton by Cloud 9 from their Backyard Garden collection. My friend thinks her baby will be a girl, but they decided not to find out the gender. Thus, I wanted my quilt to have some pink in it, but not be entirely pink and purple.

The steps of making the blocks. From left to right: 
1. Drawing the diagonal and sewing on either side 2. Cutting along the diagonal, 3. Pressing open 4. Squaring up

The charm pack size is perfect for a small baby blanket, so I'll be keeping this pattern in mind in future!

From quilted to getting the binding attached!

Finished size: approximately 32 inches by 32 inches

Cut and Pieced: February 12, 2016
