My Moda Building Blocks quilt is pieced, quilted and the binding is finished. I am so happy to share this quilt with you. It is a long time coming and I do LOVE the finished project.
This kit arrived fall of 2014 and sat on a shelf for almost a year. August 2015, I went to a weekend long quilting retreat and dedicated myself to this quilt. Prior to the weekend retreat, I cut out all the blocks following the Building Block Pattern Card. Each block was put in their own sandwich bag with the block number written on the outside. All 48 of these blocks, were put in a big bag and at the retreat I pulled one block out and completed it.
I was able to keep track of my sewing time on this quilt since it was at the retreat and I had 30 hours of sewing invested in this quilt top. I had these big plans of making 3 to 4 quilt tops at the is retreat and this top took me all but 2 hours of the retreat. Keeping track of time, really puts it into perspective the amount of time in a quilt or other sewn garment.
Since it is such a big quilt 84 x 96, I took close-ups of the quilt, so here is one half
The other half.
Some of the blocks are very big anywhere from 24 to 36 inches, such as this one.
If you would like to make one of these quilts I found one online site which still has the kits - go to Missouri Star and order one. Here is the quilt top assembly pdf
I am thrilled with the finished top and so happy I finally made the Moda Building Block quilt a priority.
