Moda Modern Building Blocks Quilt - finally finished!

This quilt has been 2 years in the cutting, stitching and quilting and is one of those quilts that is going to be forever associated with a particular season of my life. Do you have those kind of makes - ones that take on resonances and memories as you work through them?

There was a bit of a buzz about the Moda Modern Building Blocks pattern around the time when I bought it and started to work on it, but of course, it has taken me so long to finish that the buzz is now a faded hum somewhere off in 2015!

I enjoyed making a quilt of different sized blocks, even if those HSTs were the bane of my stitching times.  The range from 36" to 6" blocks was fun, though I have to admit that near the end, I wished there'd been a few more 24" and 18" ones and not quite so many tiddlers!

As you can see, this quilt has had a professional touch from the awesome Trudi Wood as there was no way my abilities were going to cope with quilting all 84" x 96" of it on my dining table!  As ever, Trudi has worked magic on the quilting, breathing life and flow into the blocks.

Even with my friendly helpers this quilt is a biggie to squeeze into shot.

With the hardest part contracted out, all I had left to do was bind and label it for a finish. So, hooray for another tick of the WIP list and a finish to declare for FAL Quarter 2!

  5. Oh goodness, this is one of the prettist Moda Building Blocks quilts I've seen! Great colour combo and lovely swirling quilting! I too made this one, but was never very happy with it, the blocks all seemed out of proportion!

  6. It's beautiful! Trudi does gorgeous work. Thanks for participating in the FAL!
