Blissful Puzzle Box

Did you happen to see the Puzzle Box Quilt Project on the Moda Bakeshop?  I fell in love with it immediately!

Don't you just love her use of solids?  I am loving the quilting as well.  I knew right away that I must add this to my long list of "must makes" but could not help but run to my EQ7 to play around a bit.

Domestic Bliss was still on my mind from creating yesterday's blog entry, so I started to mix some Domestic Bliss and Bella Neutrals and came up with...

Isn't she lovely?  What do you think? Solids or Domestic Bliss?  I love them both! If you use one Domestic Layer Cake and one Bella White Layer Cake you can actually make two quilts.  Binding and borders are kind of fluid as they really vary by taste.  I prefer a thin inner border to completely segregate the focus of the quilt to the border.

I can't decide- perhaps one day I can find the time to do both!

I thought Domestic Bliss might also look nice for the Avignon Picnic MBS project as well.  I love this collection, so many ideas!


  1. I fell in love with the Puzzle Box quilt too! The colors in that Bella Solid Warm layer cake are so lovely. Your Domestic quilt is quite nice too! So many quilts, so little time.

  2. They are just two completely different looks....and I love them both!

  3. Domestic Bliss and Solids both make very striking quilts. I think I'd make the solids first simply because I have never made a quilt from just solid fabrics.

  4. Just love the way you quilted the solids quilt - great job. I'm not normally a solids fan but this just changed my mind.

  5. Hi Leah, I just started quilting this month and I love those patterns. How are you doing those? Is it special software?

    And I've been wondering, is there a way to tell which Bella Solid "whites/neutrals" coordinate with a charm pack? For example, Domestic Bliss...If I wanted to do some sashing, would it match best with Snow or Porcelain or White? Is there a site that provides that info?

    Thanks for your awesome sale! :)

  6. Digital Michelle- the software id EQ, and bella 9900-97 goes with Domestic Bliss!
