figgy pudding

I finished a new Christmas quilt! There is a tutorial up on the Moda Bake Shop for this simple quilt that features the Figgy Pudding fabric line.
This quilt is QUICK! There is still plenty of time to (start and) finish it up before the holidays.
This one actually matches my house. Bonus! ;) I have 3 Christmas quilts in my collection now, with an idea for a 4th one that's been brewing for a long time. Hopefully I can get to it soon!
edited to add: oops! i made a yardage calculation error. (ironic, since i just posted how to calculate your quilt measurements. ha! :) ) for the center panel, you will need 1 3/4 yards of fabric, not 1 2/3 as originally stated. the green fabric is from JoAnn's. It's from their classic cotton line in the color celery.

I really like that quilt! Nice, simple and easy! Do you have to buy the material to make the the tutorials or does moda give it to you? And then do they contact you first? Or you them? Sorry just have been curious!

Lois Grebowski said...

Oh you have snow! Oh how I wish we would cool off down here in FL. I love this fabric line and the quilt is just great, and would be perfect for any quilt for which you have a really great focal fabric. Thank you for sharing with us - what a great inspiration your quilts provide to many of us :)

szkornelia said...

Lovely quilt. I also like it a lot.

carole ann said...

I love this one, love that center fabric. Well done.

Jen Petersen said...

I have both your blog and Moda Bake Shop bookmarked - Moda sits just above yours on the list. So, as I went through my daily blog reading, I clicked on Moda, read through, then clicked on yours next. I kept thinking I was hitting the wrong blog, cuz the first picture was the same! It's beautiful.

Lauren H said...

This quilt is beautiful and beautifully simple. I haven't left a comment before, but since I have, I want you to know that your blog (and thus your quilts) have really inspired me. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us!

Renee said...

Great colours!! Very pretty quilt for Christmas. :)

Fiesta said...

What a darling! I like it! The design is really meant for the Holidays! I am really jealous on how you make your quilts exceptional.

April Mae said...

hey, I was looking at this again. What is on your coffee table. It looks yummy!

Rebekah said...

cute cute quilt! I love that Christmas fabric.

Valerie said...

Sweet, sweet --- cheers for the panel! I have a large scale floral that I love and haven't wanted to cut up. Obviously it could function as a quilt back, but in my opinion it's too pretty to be "just" a back. This is the perfect solution! Thank you!

Christine Thomas said...

Beauty.

The Calico Cat said...

I Love how it "goes" & fits the couch. :o)

Clair said...

Fun name-figgy pudding! Quilt club party tonight in LP.

Rachel said...

I have been trying to figure out how to make my son a quilt with the Figgy Pudding (in the browns and blues) This looks fantastic and simple enough for me! I am constantly checking your blog, I am addicted, almost done with my very first quilt! Thanks for all the INSPIRATION!

Dallas Designing-Diva said...

Man, I'm inspired by your design. I have a charm pack and a jelly roll plus a few fat quarters so I'll be improvising to make a top similar to yours. While it won't be done be Christmas, I know I'll enjoy snuggling up to it! ;-)
