Spell it with Fabric blog hop

Each day on the blog hop you will be collecting a letter, number or shape.
The great thing about this design is that the entire quilt can be made from a Moda Jelly roll
or 2 1/2″ strips. The quilt is also made using ECT’s.
What are ECT’s?
Easy Corner Triangles is a technique that takes the guesswork from sewing triangles
 and eliminate bulky seams. We have included a sheet of directions below.
There are all kinds of ways to do the ECT’s including marking the squares
or adding tape to your sewing machine for a guide. We used the
folded Corner Clipper ruler by Prairie Sky Quilting 
for this technique.This ruler makes it a breeze to sew snowballs, geese and many more shapes
 where you need a corner triangle.

Folded Corner Clipper web

Each of the blocks have additionally pieces of fabric added so they are all the same size.
Consider it kind of a built in sashing.

Each of the pieces blocks will need the above fabric sashings added.

  1. Living where there is only one quilt shop within a 100+ mile radius I am a big fan of online quilt shops. The Fat Quarter Shop is my first stop. The shop has friendly, fast service and carries a wide range of Moda fabrics.

  2. Sadly most of my local quilt shops have closed in the past few years, so I can rely on the Fat Quarter Shop for my Moda fabrics; and I love that I can shop in my PJs. Thanks for the chance to win.

  3. I shop for Moda fabrics in many places, including online stores and etsy sites. My favorite bricks and mortar shop is Everlasting Stitches in Holt MI.

  4. I love to shop at The Wooden Bridge Dry Goods in Kutztown, PA. It is located in Amish country on a farm and my grandchildren love to go with me to see the horses, cows, and chickens. I love it because their selection of fabrics is huge!

  5. I adore touching and feeling, so my local quilt stores are great…..Crimson Tate, Always in Stitches and Quilt Quarters. I’m also a huge online buyer, WestwoodAcresFabric, and etsy. Thanks for offering!

  6. I try to support my local quilt shop whenever I can. My favorite place to shop for moda is either Log Cabin Quilting in Exira, Iowa or Country Sampler in Omaha, NE.

  8. Wow, I’m loving this hop! Great, great stuff. Thank you all. I tend to shop for the best prices on the fabric I want, and usually online. Some shops I like to get fabric from are Sew Lux, Fat Quarter Shop, Intrepid Thread, and such. Thanks for a chance to win.

  9. I live in Orkney, an island off the NE coast of Scotland. I buy my Moda fabric online from hulucrafts.co.uk and cotton patch.co.uk. I love these blog hops because as a new quilter I learn so much.

  10. Can’t always get to it when I am in need of a fabric fix as it is over a two hour drive from my home but my favorite quilt shop is The Gathering Place, Rupert, Idaho. I end up shopping on line quite a bit.

  11. I shop for Moda locally at the Olde World Quilt Shoppe in Cave Creek, Arizona. The are so many great online stores that I have also shopped with, usually dictated by who still has what I am searching for in stock!

  12. It’s 2 hrs away but worth every penny spent in gas to get there – they have the best Moda lines all the time – it’s THIMBLE PLEASURES in Chapel Hill, NC!! Don’t you just love their name? Thanks for the great hop!

  13. I do not have a local shop that sells Moda, So I will shop for my Moda precuts on Green Fairly Quilts and my yardage and special Moda on Missouri Star Quilt Company, you cannot beat their daily deals and fabulous selection. My next go-to is the Fat Quarter Shop. I love them all.

  14. Love the Quilt Asylum! They always have a huge selection of the latest Moda fabrics plus the whole collection of Bella Solids to coordinate as wel. Just the best!

  15. We have several stores in our area that carry Moda. My favorite (and closest) is Quilt Country in Lewisville,TX. The other favorite is Quilt Asylum in McKinney, TX

  16. When my local quilt store, Nancy’s Calico Patch in Newport News, VA doesn’t have what I want, I shop online at The Fat Quarters Shop. They have great customer service and a large inventory of the latest designs.

  17. I will always have a place in my heart for Quiltique in Henderson, NV (Las Vegas). I also like to support the Missouri Star Quilt Co. Thanks for the chance!

  18. I am an on-line quilt shopper. I frequent Canton Village Quilt, Hawthorne Threads and Heartsong. I usually have to go into NYC to City Quilters to shop at a store.

  19. My favorite shop for Moda fabrics is the Fat Quarter Shop. Our local shops do not have a good selection of Moda Fabrics, which is a shame. However, I can always find what I want at the Fat Quarter Shop!!

  20. I have so many great online shops that I know will always have the perfect Moda fabric that I am looking for but when I am in a want to just pet yards and yards of Moda I visit my local quilt shop, Stitching It Up.

  21. I shop a lot at Missouri Star Quilt – partly because I love Jenny’s tutorials, and partly because they are not too far from my home. But I also have had excellent experiences with the Fat Quarter Shop, Southern Fabrics, Westwood Acres, Fabricworm – I’m apparently an addict…

  22. My favorite local Moda quilt shop is the Quilt-N-Bee in Traverse City, MI. If they don’t have what I am looking for, I go with Fat Quarter Shop and Westwood Acres.

  23. Whenever I can, I like to support my local quilt store Pressing Matters. They just moved to a new, larger location and it is fabulous! For late night shopping – I go to the Fat Quarter Shop. 🙂

  24. My favorite store to shop for Moda is The Fat Quarter Shop! They have great deals! My second favorite is Craftsy.com—they have had some fabulous sales too! I’d love to win this giveaway!

  25. My favorite shop is Four Seasons quilts in Maple Grove, Mn! Although Rosebud’s cottage is a close second but further away from where I live.

  26. FancyGirl Designs in Grand Island, NE is where I get most of my Moda fabric. If not there, I purchase it on line at various stores.

  27. I purchase the vast majority of my fabric online from the Fat Quarter Shop. It’s the only place where I can find absolutely ANYTHING I want, and the customer service is top-notch. When I need to actually visit a quilt shop, I get on a ferry and head over to the Island Quilter on Vashon Island. Their selection is also awesome.

  28. I like to buy Moda at all the shops I visit, but of course I would have to say my favorite would be the one just 10 minutes from my home…Pappy’s Quilting Place. Lana

  29. Oh — I love to shop for moda at The Rabbit’s Lair in Rogers, AR. I also shop online at the Missouri Quilt Star. Love MODA !

  30. I am so sad to say that my favorite place to shop Moda fabrics USED to be Sweet Annies in Troy IL but sadly the store closed a few months ago. Lately I’ve been buying Moda at Calico Moon in Lebanon IL and Rosemary’s Fabrics in Highland IL. LOVE YOUR FABRICS!

  31. Thanks for the great giveaway… my favorite place to shop for Moda fabrics is The Gathering Place in Rupert, Idaho…Its a fun shop with great employees!

  32. Until recently I bought Moda fabrics from The Cotton Patch (UK) either at shows or online, but now Angie has opened her very own quilt shop in a market town nearby and so I buy the fabrics from Angie’s Patchwork and Quilting Shop, Cheadle, Staffordshire Moorlands,UK.

  33. My favorite shop for Moda …and all things quilty! … is Quilter’s Cupboard in Atascadero, California. Inspiration and gorgeous fabric abound! They also have Moda sewn up in beautiful quilts and kitted up 🙂 Makes that purchase easy!

  34. Oh no! Don’t make me choose! I have three LQSs that I love for different reasons…The Granary, the Intrepid Thread, and Eddie’s Quilting Bee.

  35. Heartfelt Quilting. They have 3 locations in Florida – Winter Haven, Lakeland and Poinciana! All with the nicest fabrics and the happiest ladies.

  36. In the US – Webfabrics in Purcellville, VA. One of my favourite shops in the world!
    In the UK – The Bramble Patch has a good selection, but webfabrics is best.

  37. I buy online mainly for prices – my first love is the Intrepid Thread – then Fat Quarter Shop and I find that Hawthorne Threads is a great place to find moda fabrics.

  38. When I can, I like to shop at my “not so local” quilt shop Wish Upon a Quilt in Raleigh, NC. I also like to spread the love and shop at several online shops like MSQC, Bloomerie, Crazy Girl Quilts, and Sew Lux Fabrics…just to name a few. I don’t get to shop often so I try to shop for the best prices.

  39. Here in germany my favorite store is RoseQuilts, in Gauting (near Munich). Online I love to order from the FQS or Greenfairyquilts.

  40. My favourite place to shop for Moda Fabrics is our local fabric “barn” called BeaverCreek Mercantile just outside of Caroline, Alberta, Canada. They have a wonderful selection of Moda precuts and yardages!

  41. I live in Australia and although Moda is sold here it is extremely expensive, so I get mine now from Hancock’s of Paducah, they always have a fabulous range, postage is reasonable and I still get it about 20% cheaper than if I bought here!

  42. My favourite shop for purchasing my MODA fabrics is the Fat Quarter Shop. Here in England we do not have the range and quantity of quilt shops so I love that I can buy the pre-cuts from the Fat Quarter Shop and have them shipped over.

  43. Anne Manly – Well it seems Fat Quarter Shop is a major contender and it gets my on-line vote hands down. But the need to fondle fabric is addictive so I head to Colorz for Quilts in Brainerd, MN or Gruber’s Quilt Shop in St. Cloud, MN. It’s sad to read that so many local shops have closed. Thanks for the constant inspiration and fantastic designers!

  44. My favorite Shop is Hollyhill in West Linn, Or. I am lucky enough to live 40 mins away. This shop is beautiful. They have a GREAT holidays work shop in Nov.

  45. I usually head to the Fat Quarter Shop as the latest and greatest is always available! I was even able to pre-order my Downton Abbey :-)!

  46. Ever since I received a gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop I’ve been hooked. Beautiful, extensive selection and great customer service. If I need something this minute my go to is Quilters Destination in Arlington Heights, IL. Thanks for a great giveaway.

  47. If I am shopping online I head on over to The Fat Quarter Shop. If I take a road trip, I usually go to my nearest quilt shop…Everlasting Stitches. Thanks for the fun hop and a chance at the goodies!

  48. My favourite local shops for moda are the mallee tree and hettie’s patch. But as I’m in Australia it can be hard to get the collections I would like so I also do a bit of online shopping and there are too many of them to list. Louise xx

  49. The first store I go to for Moda fabrics is my local quilt shop “The Wild Rose”. It’s an amazing and beautiful store. They have a retreat center, offer classes, and are super friendly people. If they don’t have a line that I’m looking for, I’ll try quiltshops.com for an online source.

  50. I’m really loving this hop so far, thanks for putting it together! I’m a modaholic, so don’t have just one store I purchase from, my local quilt shop In Between Stitches always has great moda collections.

  51. I look for Moda every where I go! The closest local shop is The Square Quilter in Shiner TX. I also shop online at The Fat Quarter Shop and Craftsy!

  52. I love to shop at my local quilt stores which are The Quilt Shop on Main in Jasper GA and Country Stitches in Blue Ridge GA. I also love to shop at The Missouri Star Quilt Company and SewLux Fabircs online. You can see I love fabric and I love Moda!

  53. My favorite is Primitive Gatherings. Online and visitng. I feel so warm and they have such a large selection of items. I live in NC but have also visited Menasha. Lisa deisigns amazing patterns and fabrics as well.

  54. I am fortunate to have many quilt shops near me so I am listing the closest one that has Moda fabric and that il Roberts Sewing Center. I look forward to hopping everyday to check out the different blogs for the day. What fun!

  55. My favorite store to shop for Moda fabrics is The Gathering Place in Rupert, Idaho. It’s about a 2-hour drive from me, but well worth it!

    Cathy ♥

  56. My favorite local shop for buying Moda Fabrics is Thread Bear Fabrics in Cumming, Georgia. They carry every pre-cut of many many Moda lines. Great selection.

  57. I am devoted to my local MODA supplier- High Prairie Quilts in Parker, CO. But in the off chance they don’t have what I need (happens only rarely) my on-line “go to” place for Moda is Fat Quarter Shop!

  58. My favorite shops to buy Moda are both online; Shabby Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop. If I am traveling, I try to find a quilt shop, the last one was in Vacaville CA, but I don’t remember the name, but I did find a scrumptious jelly roll there!

  59. My favorite place to buy Moda fabrics is The Fabric Garden in Madison, Maine….not only are the fabrics great; but the owner and her employees are fabulous to do business with.

  60. My local shop I like is Sisters in Quilting, Marlette, MI. because they have a great selection of the Moda charm packs and precuts, and I cant resist those.

  61. No quilting shops in my part of the world at all other than what you can get online. For me the Fat Quarter shop also offers very good selection of fabrics.

  62. Well, I’m headed to UT and I will visit Material Girls – they have a shop full of Moda! Sadly, we only have one local quilt shop, Sewing Party, but they do carry some of the more modern Moda lines. I also purchase from Fig Tree and Strawberry Patches online. Couldn’t live without Moda!

  63. Well, there are two, and they are both online shops. My LQS’s typically don’t carry full lines and rarely carry the designers I like. I know I can rely on Fat Quarter Shop and also Rossville Fabrics. Thanks for all the fun with the letters.

  64. Since there is no store in this city that handles Moda, online shopping is my store. Fat Quarter Shop is one of them, but there have been others and I’ve a few bundles in the sewing room. Love your fabric.

  65. My favourite shop for Moda is Fat Quarter Shop. The products are presented so clearly with beautiful pictures which makes shopping on the internet a breeze.

  66. My local quiltstore here in my town has a nice collection of Moda. The store is called Quiltefryd, which means the joy of quilting.

  67. I live in South Orange County, California, and so many of our fabric stores have closed. I drive several miles north to a fabulous store called Orange Quilt Bee in the town of Orange to buy Moda fabrics.

  68. My online store is LisasStitchingPost.com. I shop for Moda fabrics for my store at United Notions/Moda Fabrics–and have been doing so since August of 2006. 🙂

  69. I’m my area we there aren’t any LQS, only the one that starts with J and ends in Ann, so I rely heavily on the Internet. I would have to say that my Moda “go tos” would have to be The Fat Quarter Shop and The Missouri Star Quilt Company. If one doesn’t have it the other will. When I win the lottery I’m going to open my own LQS then I will never have to wait for what I want to use ever again! (Patience is not one of my strong points) LOL!

  70. Living in a rural area I often shop online & love getting visuals of the new fabric lines through the Moda Blog Hop!! I have been introduced to new collections I otherwise wouldn’t have known about since the shops in my area are far apart.

  71. I think Moda has the best quality fabric! So when I’m taking the time to make a quilt, apron, purse or jacket . . . I choose Moda fabric! My favorite quilt shop is Orange Quilt Bee in Orange, CA. The gals who own the shop & the talented ladies they employ are so helpful & fun. I come for the Moda fabric . . . but also the outstanding customer service I receive at this beautiful quilt shop! Love you Moda & Orange Quilt Bee!

  72. As I live in France it can be difficult to get Moda, thank goodness for online shopping! My favourite shop is Fat Quarter Shop, they have so much to choose from. Thanks for the chance.

  73. My favorite store to purchase Moda fabrics from is Green Fairy Quilts. Thank you for the chance to win something wonderful!!


  74. Lets see, I buy Moda whenever I in a shop that has it. I’ve bought it at The Quilt Shop, Marshall MI, Trevathans, Hillsdale, MI, from Primitive Gatherings web, from Fat Quarter Shop, Lolly’s in Shipshewana and Yoders in Shipshewana.

  75. I love shopping for fabric in store and online!! I love what Southernfabric.com has to offer. So many selections and fun prints I can’t control myself!! Southernfabric.com is my favorite place to shop for Moda for sure.

  76. I love to “look” at the new Moda lines (yes, unabashedly, my favorite!!) but *buying* at one of the local quilt shops… First choice would be ‘Always Your Design’, in Dell Rapids, SD.

  77. It’s a shop called Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe in West Linn, Oregon and it’s fantastic. It’s 50 miles from where I live, but it’s worth the drive to see all the beautiful Moda fabrics!

  78. I love online shopping but I’m lucky to have a semi local shop that feels like the moda warehouse! GRS creations and fabrics in Spring, TX has anything and everything you would EVER want Moda! Since it’s about 60 minute drive with Houston traffic, I load up when I make it out there. I can get coordinating border fabric, backing and binding from lines that are older and I can’t find anywhere else. And of course I find new fabric that I HAVE TO HAVE!!! GRS never disappoints! mrscwatson81 at Hotmail dot com

  79. I’m in the UK, and find I need to shop online for Moda. My fave Moda supplier is Simply Solids. Although I have just discovered Weswood Acres in USA, which is fast becoming a favoutite.

  80. My favorite local shop to purchase Moda fabric at is Traditional Pastimes in Calgary. There are a couple of others in town too, but my other favorite shop, Freckles, closed a couple of years ago, so I also shop online.

  81. My favorite local quilt shop is Patchwork Pig in Farmington, NM and my favorite online store to buy Moda fabric is Fat Quarter Shop. Thank you for the chance to win!

  82. We’ve had a number of quilt stores in our area close or change owners. Lucky for me the one closest to my house, The Quilt Merchant, has started to carry more Moda lines.

  83. I LOVE Moda fabrics. I usually buy mine online at Etsy from Stashmodernfabric. But I also like Fatquartershop. Locally, I have a few quilt shops by me on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. Thanks for the great chance to win!

  84. I love to shop at my LQS – Captial Quilts in Gaithersburg, MD. They carry a lot of Moda fabrics and I enjoy touching and matching fabrics in person. 🙂

  85. I need to mention two shops — my LQS is The Fabric Shack in Waynesville — fabulous! And my go-to site for on-line shopping is The Fat Quarter Shop. Thanks for offering another fun blog hop!

  86. I have two favorites – both Quilts n’ Gifts in Bluffton, IN and Fabric and Friends in Roanoke, IN. Both great shops owned by great ladies! 🙂 Thank you for the extra giveaway!

  87. Moda is one of my all time favourites! Just love US fabrics so much and when I have trouble finding what I want here in Australia I also head straight to the Fat Quarter Shop 🙂
