Moda Love Blog Tour

moda-love_slider
Hello! Today it's my turn on the Moda Love Blog Tour and I'm thrilled to have you here. If you're visiting for the first time, I'm Vanessa Goertzen of Lella Boutique and am a new designer for Moda. My first collection Into the Woods shipped to shops last month (!!) and I couldn't be more thrilled to be a part of the Moda family!
Into the Woods & matching Aurifil
Speaking of family, I'm quite fond of mine! I'm mother to two spunky children named Olive and Lorenzo. These sweeties keep me running in circles all day, but I would not have it any other way.
Olive is thrilled but Lorenzo decided to snooze.
Since the Moda Love Blog Tour is all about LOVE, I'm answering a few questions about my LOVE of quilting:
When did you start quilting and what was your first project? My mom taught me to sew at a young age, but it wasn't until I was 15 that I really took an interest in quilting. One afternoon, I discovered her working on a pixelated sunflower quilt. It was so cheery and wonderful that I just had to make one. Of course, I wanted to add my own special touch, so I designed some smaller pixelated flower blocks to incorporate into a border. I was having a great time making it all up as I went along, adding sashing (of various widths) and corner blocks as I pleased... Of course, nothing really lined up quite as I had envisioned but I think the saving grace was a sweet poem I embroidered into the border about sunflowers and their quest for light. Despite its MANY imperfections, the quilt has always been a meaningful reminder to seek the good things in life. 
My first quilt
What is the best part of your design process? I LOVE the challenge of coming up with something new by letting the fabric do the talking. Each collection speaks to me in a different way and I love exploring new possibilities that each one brings. Playing with fabric every day is the best job in the whole world.
Rose Red Cartwheel quilt pattern. Fabric is Into the Woods by Vanessa Goertzen of Lella Boutique for Moda.
What fuels you to create? Because I do much of my work after everyone has gone to bed, sweets literally fuel my creativity in the wee hours of morning. Some of my favorites are Twizzlers, Swedish Fish, and Riesens. 
(something gummy-ish + something chocolate = the proper balance)

American Patchwork & Quilting, February 2014
THE MODA LAB 
At Quilt Market, we Moda designers were given the opportunity to share some of our favorite tips and tricks in the Moda Lab. Watch below as I share my favorite technique to transform a Layer Cake® into half-square triangles:

This method of making half-square triangles comes in especially handy when piecing my new Figgy Pudding quilt pattern (free).
THE MODA LOVE LAYER CAKE PATTERN  
The Moda designers were also given this pattern and tasked with making it using our latest lines. Here's mine, and the beautiful bread basket pantograph quilting was done by Abby Latimer of Latimer Lane Quilting.
Moda Love #3
I wanted a little bit of a scrappy look to mine so I departed from the pattern slightly... I took 12 Layer Cake® squares, sub-cut them into 5" squares first, sewed them into four-patches, and THEN plugged them into the pattern.
Instructions include smaller versions using a charm pack or a mini charm pack. I made all three sizes and I think the mini charm version is my favorite! Isn't she sweet?
Moda Love #1
And here is the charm pack version (I played around with the inverse design):
Moda Love #2
It's fun to see all the other Moda designers' fabrics plugged into this pattern! Now what, you've all been waiting for...

  9. I LOVE your little mini quilt! I've enjoyed seeing all of the quilts so far, but that mini is my favorite! About a bedtime story.....well, we homeschool our children and so books are all over, in every room of our house! We love to read and have many favorites. We usually read 3 books and a Bible story at bedtime and I always read "happy ending" stories to end the day so we have no bad dreams. One of my favorites is Warm as Wool by Scott Russell Sanders. Another is Ox-Cart Man by Donald Hall. We love old-fashioned stories that depict a simpler life and both of these fit! Thanks for the chance to win some of your LOVELY new line!

  70. Vanessa -- your new fabric line is darling - thank you for the generous giveaway! When our grandchildren stay overnight we always tell them a bedtime story that reflects the fun we had during the day -- if it was swimming or hiking or sewing or playing outside.. we talk about how much fun it is to stay at gramma and grampas and how children always sleep well after a day of fun play .The story time children always give thanks for their brothers and sisters and family and head off to bed... It's alot of fun to watch their faces as we make the story up that reflects their days... Sweet times.

  142. I LOVE your fabrics! Bedtime stories was not something I was privileged to as a child, so I don't have a personal favorite, but when I had children of my own I made sure we did bedtime stories every night. Their favorite was The Three Little Pigs. They LOVED it when I would use high pitched squeaky voices for the pigs and a low rough voice for the wolf and blow in their faces when it came to the "blow your house down" phrase.

  143. My father used to make up bedtime stories about a character named "Sleepy" who use to fall asleep in the most peculiar places (perhaps he had sleep apnea?)! They were always a favorite! ~*

  144. "Goodnight, Moon" was a favorite story to read to my grandchildren. It was fun to hear them "read" the words because the story had been memorized--it was read often. Love the colors in the fabric "Into the Woods" and I like your interpretation with the addition of the 4 patch. It was good to 'meet' you and I look forward to finding your fabric in the local quilt shops. Thanks for a chance to win some of the fabric.

  148. I read to our daughters so don't have a favorite story. I read to our granddaughter (now 17) and she never tired of "Mixed up Max" even though she had outgrown the books by many, many years.

  152. Love your fabric, glad you are with Moda! My favorite bed time story is the one that my grandson makes up when it's time for bed. He has told some great ones including how Holly (my dog) stole Christmas. He is only five, and thru his eyes everyday is a play day.

    I'm usually not a fan of the color brown, but every time I see your "Into the Woods" line, I'm so drawn to it and how well your colors go together. Every project I've seen made from it is lovely. You did a great job making the Moda pattern your own with the four-patches.

  185. Looking back, a very long time ago in my case, one of my favorite bedtime stories was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. My dad would read to me, taking on the voices of the different characters, and I thought he was the greatest dad on earth. Sadly, he passed away 18 months ago, at the age of 104.
