Is it the designers, the precuts or all the yummy Moda fabrics that draw us into this book? Oh heck, it’s all three! Moda Bake Shop is the blog community set up by Moda to feature “recipes” for creating wonderful fabric treats from Moda’s jelly rolls (2 ½” strips), layer cakes (10” squares) and other packs of already cut fabs. Precuts have been all the rage since designers started working with fat quarters and are a wonderful way to get a little bit of a lot of different fabrics, usually from a single designer’s collection.
In this case, the quilts are simple and doable (April in Paris is sooo pretty!), but the shine really comes from the other sewn projects. Just a bit more involved than beginner, Roslyn Mirrington’s Jewelry Wallet is so incredibly girly and useful for those of us who travel that our fingers were itching to make it. Jenny Garland’s Zippidy Doodle Bag is practically a no-brainer for kid-accompanied outings. (Skeptical? Just think about how many shoes you can try on while your 4-year-old works on the Cars 2 coloring book.) And Kimberly Walus’ Pack ‘N Go Tote with a matching Sewing Kit is a fabulous combo for us sew-types. A perfect buy for gift givers or those of you drowning in precuts. http://generationqmagazine.com/, 7/13/2011
I bought this book for one pattern inside.
To be honest, still haven't made anything.
There are a lot of good patterns inside!
I was pretty disappointed with this book because my expectations were so high from the excellent first book that was published from the Moda Bake Shop. Read morePublished 8 months ago by BOOK REVIEW
