Contempo Throw on Moda Bake Shop

We are so excited to be accepted as a Moda Bake Shop Chef and feature our Contempo Throw! This 55¾" x 70½" contemporary quilt features Moda's "Contempo" line of fabric. A piano key border of 9 coordinating fabrics complements the beautiful center panel and inner borders. The glowing oranges, mustard golds, and relaxing taupe colors make this a perfect autumn throw!

We have also made kits of this wonderful quilt. Limited Quantities Available! Stop in, call 402-489-1067, visit us on facebook, or email us to get yours today!

• 1 ⅔ yards of Contempo Spice 32841 14 Moda

• 1 Contempo layer cake OR 1/8 yard cuts of 9 coordinating fabrics

• Contempo Spice 32841 14 fabric is the center of the quilt. Cut center 43 ½" x 58"
  (pay attention to the pattern repeat).
  Cut the salvage off each side so the pattern is equal on both sides.

  Cut (5) ¾" x WOF (width of fabric) strips.

• 2" inner border is Contempo Mustard 32846 18. Cut (5) 2 ½" x WOF strips.
  Cut (1) 3 ½" x WOF strip. From this strip cut (4) 3 ½" squares for cornerstones,
  then cut 2 ½" x the amount needed to complete the inner border. Join strips for side borders:
  (2) 2 ½" x 59" strips. Join strips for top and bottom borders: (2) 2 ½" x 48" strips. Trim to fit.

• The piano keys outer border is created by making strata from (9) coordination fabrics.
  Cut 3" x  WOF from each fabric. Join, then cut into 4" strips. If using a layer cake, cut coordinating 
  colors into 3" strips. You'll need 45 strips to make your strata, then cut into 4" strips.
• Cornerstones: Use the (4) 3 ½" squares previously cut from the Contempo Mustard fabric. Add 1"
  Bella Solids Weathered Teak 9900 129 strips to 2 sides (the binding adds the other 2 sides).

 • Quilt as desired.
