Moda's Love It, Pin It, Win It Contest

Ok, so most of you know how much I thoroughly enjoy baking in the kitchen, but do you know that I'm totally in love with sewing???  Moda Bake Shop is a site I explore to see what others are doing with precut fabrics whose cuts are named after baking.  We have jelly rolls, honey buns, layer cakes, turnovers, etc.  (I'm still waiting for the cupcake cut as that's my favorite thing to bake.  Sweet, 2 1/2 inch circles is what I envision, ah, but I digress) Sewing "recipes" are shared, chefs are introduced, and shopping from the "bakery" is just plain fun. 

An example of precuts sewn together is Eli's Wheels Quilt:

Someday soon I'm going to love stitching this one up.  The colors are this years finest (juicy red and eyepopping blue, oh yeah!) from Moda's Ruby fabric .  I love how the quilt looks difficult to create, but when I review the pattern I can say with confidence, "Hey, I can do that!"  But the main reason I chose this recipe is because those pinwheels dancing across the quilt bring out my inner child and make me want to share that joy I feel with others.  (My niece, Robin, would love this one!)
