Home Tweet Home

I know we still have two months of winter left, but somehow I can't help looking ahead to spring.  And in honor of the sweetest season, here's what I've been working on:



It's Home Tweet Home, my latest Moda Bake Shop tutorial.  This sweet quilt finishes at 15½" square.  You'll need a mini charm pack, a bit of yardage and 16 little buttons to make Home Tweet Home and you can find detailed instructions as well as plenty of how-to photos free at the Moda Bake Shop.




I made my little quilt with "Lilac Ridge" by Jan Patek Quilts.  Her shades of lavender, green, brown and cream are perfect for spring—soft, lovely and warm. 

But if you're wondering what Home Tweet Home would look like in a different color palette, here are a couple of ideas that I think are equally cute.  Each is inspired by a current or upcoming Moda fabric collection.

Mama's Cottage by April Rosenthal available now

Provencal by American Jane available in February

Whichever you choose, I hope you have fun making Home Tweet Home.  And if you share your little quilts on Instagram or Facebook, please tag me @JenDalyQuilts—I'd love to see what you're up to!

    1. Hi Kathleen - It's not a silly question! Unfortunately I don't have a kit available for the project, but if you follow this link to my Moda Bake Shop tutorial (http://www.modabakeshop.com/2018/01/home-tweet-home-mini-quilt.html), you'll find a detailed list of the materials necessary to make the exact quilt, as well as complete instructions and a downloadable template for the foundation pattern. I checked and the Lilac Ridge mini charm pack and extra fabric are still readily available for purchase online. Good luck and let me know if you have any more questions!
