My latest project is up on the Moda Bake Shop! Aurora is a fun, bright quilt that features Lulu Lane, Corey Yoder's latest fabric line.

I love the happy, scrappy look of this project. I used a variety of fat quarters for the project, but I think it would look stunning as a two color quilt, as well. Check out this illustration.

The quilt posted on the Bake Shop is quite largea full sized bed covering! That might be too ambitious for some, I know. The good news is that this quilt is super easy to resize. Each fat quarter makes two full blocks and each block finishes at 12 inches. To resize, figure out how many blocks the quilt requires and divide that number in half to determine how many fat quarters you need. Easy peasy! Here are two additional sizes:

Baby quilt (36" by 48")
This quilt is arranged in a three by four layout (that is, four rows with three blocks in each row). You will need six fat quarters for this version.  

Throw quilt (48" by 60")
This quilt is arranged in a four by five layout (that is, five rows with four blocks in each row). You will need ten fat quarters for this version.  

I think this quilt would look great with a border, or with sashing between the blocks. I even toyed with setting the blocks on point. So many interesting possibilities with this block. Have fun making it your own.

Happy sewing!
