Hello and happy Friday! Today I’m excited to begin sharing the new Clover Hollow fabric collection along with the five new patterns! I’ll begin today with my new Family Tree pattern; this is a design I’ve been wanting to make for quite a while…I was just waiting for the right fabric to come along. And Clover Hollow is absolutely perfect for this design. I love the variety of colors and prints that really make these tree blocks come to life!
What’s even better about this design is that it works with a Layer Cake…yes, a
Layer Cake with a few extra fabrics to put it all together!This quilt finishes at a terrific size of 77″ x 77″! I’ll always remember watching the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics the night I started making these half-square triangles!
I seriously love these tree blocks with all of the different colored leaves…I made all of the blocks in just a few days and wanted to keep making more! I used the same fabric for all of the tree trunks, but you could definitely mix that up a little if you wanted to.
And the gorgeous quilting was done by my friend Val. She did just an amazing job with attention to every detail. I had so much fun binding this quilt and finding different details she had added!
And guess what! This pattern is Cake Mix friendly! One package of Cake Mix Recipe 3 will allow you to make the half-square triangles with no fuss (of course you can also make the half-square triangles the traditional way if you’d like).
Even more fun is the fact that Moda will be kitting the Family Tree quilt! The quilt kit will include everything (including the Cake Mix Recipe 3) to make the red border version shown above (backing isn’t included) and will come in a cute box! Be sure to ask your favorite brick and mortar or online quilt shop to order one of these kits for you!
PDF patterns for Family Tree are available in my shop now with paper patterns shipping this week! There is also a bundle sale with all of the new patterns already listed: Buy the four new full-sized patterns and get the mini for free in paper or PDF!
I’ll be introducing fabric and fabric bundles next week…but you can also find them listed in the shop now if you check the fabric section.

I hope you love this new design as much as I do…thanks so much for stopping by!
