"Just A Small Slice, Please" in the Moda Bake Shop

Denniele Bohannan
Just a Small Slice, Please

Do you subscribe to the Moda Bake Shop? I found this yummy confection in my mail box on Monday.



Look for Denniele's recipe for a colorful quilt made of a pack of fat eighths of my
current Moda line The Morris Jewels.

I've been blogging about tessellations, a single pattern piece that covers the surface of the quilt. 


Any four-sided shape will tessellate and this almost-a-triangle fits that geometry. Denniele used a Dresden Plate ruler to cut the slices.

Here's an in-progress shot on her design wall.

We've been discussing how much easier this shape is to sew than a long, skinny triangle with a sharp point at the top.

You can email a photo to Louannamary @ gmail.com, tag her on instagram @dennielebohannon or Facebook, Louanna Mary Quilt Design.

Congratulations to Denniele for such a clever design
I'm lucky to have such friends!
