Feeling 'The Love'...

...that's Moda Love!

There was a Blog Hop awhile back sponsored by Moda (Sept. 2014)...They provided their fabric designers with the Moda Love Pattern and asked them to come up with their own version of the Moda Love Quilt using their fabrics...There were big versions of the quilt and there were small versions of the quilt!  I jumped on the bandwagon and made Jan Patek's smaller can see my finished quilt HERE.

Well unbeknownst to me, Erin, my daughter, was also making the same Moda Love quilt...only BIGGER...much bigger.  She loved it but it was a brute and she dreaded quilting it on her she put it away. (You know how that goes!)  When she heard that I got a new Juki mid-arm she brought it with her on her last visit...(a little visiting, a little quilting was her plan)...unfortunately the stitch regulator hadn't arrived so the Juki wasn't she left the quilt top with me.

Yesterday I got her done and she is magnificent!  Simple straight lines for this modern quilt...
Moda Love was too big to lay full out but you get the idea...

 I'm in love with the stitches that the Juki makes...uniform and perfect!
 Erin told me the name of the fabric...but I'll be darned if I can remember...I DO remember that it was a Layer Cake;o)...and it really is gorgeous fabric!  The pictures do not do it justice!
 The quilt weighs a ton...but needs to go back to her maker!  Erin has plans for this quilt!

Only FIVE days till the big day and I am still playing!  BUT...after all these years I KNOW that the house will get cleaned, the turkey will get dressed and roasted and there will be yams and pumpkin pie on the table...the rest is gravy! :o)))

I hope you are still playing too...remember, it'll get done!  It always does!
Have a Super Sunday and Happy Stitching!~P
PS...if you missed the Moda Love Blog Tour then go HERE to see different versions of this quilt!  If you want the FREE PATTERN then go HERE!  Don't you LOVE the net!


  1. Love the quilt and you did a beautiful job with the quilting, the new machine seems to be the perfect one for you. I need to clean out an area in my room for when I get my sit down, can't wait to start practicing.


  2. Congrats to you both, Erin for the lovely top and you for the lovely quilting and finishing your first project on your new machine.

    I'm sure it will be the first of many!

  3. Sounds like you are loving your new machine. I have been contemplating buying the Juki 2010 for some time. I currently have 3 Berninas and my humble Feather Weight. What has attracted me to the Juki is it's heavy construction and the straight stitch only feature. If I do purchase the Juki it means all new feet, bobbins, etc. and I'm not sure I want to go there. Would you mind providing a hands-on critique of your experience with the Juki. While I love my Berninas, I must confess that the last one I purchased just does not have the same precise, sturdy stitching that older machines had. The Juki 2010 seems to mimic the old straight stitch only machines. Love your blog and am sorry you decided not to travel down to So. Calif. this year since I live in So. Calif. Have a great holiday.


  4. What a nice job by both of you. I'm still playing. No worries.
