This quilt pattern is called "Mexican Fiesta Eggs" and was made using a Jelly Roll called "Sunkissed" by Sweetwater for Moda. The pattern was part of a programme called "The Breakfast Club" which was held a few years ago at my local quilt shop, Quilters Haven. Each month we were given a pattern to make a quilt top using 2.5" strips of fabric. Of course you could just cut the strips yourself and use your stash, but it was much more fun to use a Jelly Roll and Moda certainly has a huge selection to chose from. It was great fun seeing how different everyone's tops looked depending on what Jelly Roll they used! I'd made this quilt top a few years ago and put it away as I wasn't really sure how I wanted it quilted. A few weeks ago I took it over to Jeanette who has a super longarm quilting studio...
...I've used the left over strips of the Jelly Roll to make a scrappy binding for this quilt top, and as it's a smaller quilt (approx 44" square), I used a quarter inch binding, machined it into place on the front of the quilt, and hand stitched to the back...
...the quilting design I chose for this one is called "Embellish" and a bright pink quilting thread was used, which looks great with the pink, orange and lime green colours of the fabric...
...and here it is in all it's glory. Unfortunately I don't know if these patterns or The Breakfast Club programme is still available. If you are interested in trying to get a pattern, I'd suggest contacting your local quilt shop, to see if they can help.
