|Moda Modern Building Blocks - Block 13|
Block 13 is a bold, simple block that was easy to piece. It is good that in this quilt top of many HSTs and flying geese there are more restful blocks to piece from time to time.
One of things I noticed early on when choosing my fabrics for this quilt is that the original solid fabrics that the Moda quilt uses are similar to the colour palette of many of the Bonnie and Camille fabrics in my stash. On the whole, I have been able to "translate" that into my fabric choices which has kept the decision making process slightly easier for me. Occasionally, though there are a few blocks where that isn't possible (e.g. I don't have any of the B&C yellow fabrics) and when I have come across those I've simply tried to mix something else in that hopefully won't lead to too many similar colours or pattern designs meeting when the blocks are put together. I guess I shall see when it's all done whether it works or not!
