Urban Shades Quilt

I created a new tutorial at Moda Bake Shop called Urban Shades!  
 It is a really easy pattern, with large 14.5" blocks.
 The fabric is Mama Said Sew by Sweetwater...
 ...but I can see a whole ton of different colour ways with this simple pattern.

Christmas is coming....an easy peasy gift to whip up!

  1. It's gorgeous. Absolutely beautiful.

    Sorry to hear about your thread breakage issues. I think sometimes machines just get temperamental. I did, however, find that I sometimes have problems with thread breakage when the bobbin is just slightly off. I switched to using metal ones instead of plastic and that's rarely the cause now. The biggest bane I have is the tension. In order to free-motion, I have to ratchet up the tension which makes breakage a frustratingly more common occurrence. Hopefully, the shop visit will fix the glitch.

  10. How many FQ's do you need for the quilt top? I don't have this particular bundle but I do have a couple of bundles, but not sure how many I would need to make the quilt top only. By the looks of the instructions it looks like 28 but I want to make sure before I decide to make it.
    Thanks.. it's a really nice looking quilt!
