Tropical Punch Tutorial for Moda Bake Shop

I’m back with another tutorial for Moda Bake Shop!


I am so thrilled with how this quilt turned out. Meadowbloom is seriously gorgeous and I think it was the perfect collection for this pattern. Since it is the Summer of Bella Solids, and you know I love my solids, I thought it would be fun to mockup a version of the quilt in various solid colors.

If I were to make a throw quilt I would have 6 rows of 5 blocks, so 30 blocks total. With sashing the end quilt would measure 58″ x 70.”  I think this palette is perfect for summer.

I used Moda’s nifty Palette Builder by Play Crafts to figure out which Bella Solids would work best. It was so simple and I didn’t even have to whip out my Bella Color Card!

Last but not least, here is a coloring page for y’all so you can play around with color placement for your own quilts! Just click on the image to bring it up to full size in your browser, and print from there. Easy peasey.
