Moda Modern Building Blocks - Blocks 41 - 48

Woohoo!!!  48 blocks complete!

There were times with these fiddly 6" blocks that I thought I'd never actually make them all.  Truthfully, not all of them were fun, but they're ALL DONE!!!!

My favourites from these last blocks are no 45 (the red and white in the centre) and no 47 (the green friendship star).  I'm still a little concerned about the pale grey blocks (nos 42 and 48) and whether or not they will look insipid in the quilt as a whole.  Mostly, I have tried to follow the colours of the original quilt design, albeit in prints rather than solids, and so if greys worked in it I'm hoping they'll be okay in mine too.

It feels good to have gotten this far at last.  Next all the blocks will be sorted and assembled in sections to become a mahoosive quilt flimsy.  Before I get to that though I am just going to revel in not having any more 6" blocks to sew for a while! ;-)


  1. Woohoo! Well done! A huge number of blocks completed. I really like the chevron one (top right). Looking forward to seeing them altogether. Jxo

  2. They're wonderful! Congratulations on finishing all the blocks, I'm really looking forward to seeing them all together!

  3. Very well done, I cannot believe you have found enough time to sew all these! And I am sure those pale greys will give the depth to the contrasts in the quilt that it would lose if all the blocks were bright.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I do try to respond to every comment, but forgive me if occasionally time does not permit.
