Mini quilt-along alert! Mix It Up with the Moda All-Stars

Posted by on December 16, 2019, in quilting & sewing, , ,


After the holiday craziness, you may be ready for a quick and fun project. This is just the ticket!  All you’ll need is a charm pack, a Cupcake Mix Recipe pack, a bit of border fabric, and the book Moda All-Stars: Mix it Up!

We’ll make a mini version of Carrie Nelson’s Bubble and Froth quilt. The 70 ½"x 70 ½"quilt in Moda All-Stars: Mix it Up! is made from Cake Mix Recipe 4. Our mini version, a 28 ½"x 28 ½" quilt, will use Cupcake Mix Recipe 2. Cute, eh? Although you need the book to complete the mini version, Carrie has provided basic instructions for cutting the pieces for the mini quilt here.  Thanks, Carrie!

  • I’m a quilt along newbie. .
    Not to say I’m new at quilting but just haven’t joined any quilt alongs. Love the idea of smaller piecing to make a bigger churn dash. So….start your engines!
