Trade Winds and Stars quilt

Trade-Winds-and-Stars---ful copy

I am so happy to have my first ever pattern in the Moda Bake Shop. Yes! I baked a quilt!

It's such a super simple quilt. Minimal cutting, no points to get fussy over. but the slanted stars effect of the blocks is what I love the most.

For the first time ever I used solid fabrics for the back and I really like how it turned out, especially with the straight line quilting I did.


I hope this is a quilt that Monique will love for a very, very long time.
