Moda Building Blocks Quilt - Almost Done!
This quilt was going to be a long term project. And it was, for a few months. But when a large project like this reaches about half way or a bit more, then I usually get excited to see it completed and forge ahead with great gusto.
So now I've got almost all the blocks made, just a few of those crazy 6" blocks with all the tiny triangle pieces. I'm feeling tempted to forgo the last ones and just fill those spots up with 6" squares of favorite fabrics, but I'm trying to resist. I want this to be a quilt that doesn't cheat!
And I think I'm going to make it bigger, adding a row of blocks along one side to make it a healthy queen size.
The true story is that I've been quite enjoying the process on this quilt pattern. As I'm finishing up the final stretch, I'm actually considering making another one sometime. Maybe in all my favorite fabrics. And maybe instead of all those bitty 6" blocks, I'd fill those areas up with scrappy 2" squares.
I think the reason I love making a quilt like this is that I get to pick the fabric out for each block as I go along. Since the fabric picking is my favorite part, that means I get to spread it out through the whole process.
