One Moda turnover….

One Moda turnover….

That’s all it took!  I am a HUGE fan of Sandy Klopp, (the designer of American Jane fabric) and when we got the Snippets line in the shop I couldn’t wait to try something out.

Since I haven’t played around much with the turnovers I got all excited and (with Mom’s help) we whipped this little baby blanket up in an afternoon!!

We used one turnover, and a yard and a half of the blue dot (moda) and BOOM it was done!  Then to top off the whole thing we scalloped the edges, using this scallop edge tool.  Mom quilted it and now all that’s left is the binding.  (which is happening even as I type this!!)

Seriously, easy and fun!  If you haven’t tried the new turnovers yet, you are missing out!!  Don’t be afraid.  It is easier than you might think.
