So when you get the top half of the Moda Modern Building Blocks quilt pieced,
And the bottom half of the Moda Building Blocks quilt pieced,
all that's left is to combine them,
and then you're done.
This is Lifetime Quilt Number 144
The pattern is Moda Modern Building Blocks
It finished at 84" x 96"
It has approximately 1,272 pieces
I used nothing but polka-dot fabric. It's hard to see all the dots in these pictures but I didn't cheat once. A white dot on dot print was a real life saver. I also think my use of varying polka dot sizes kept this top from being a hot mess.
I probably swapped out about a half dozen blocks in the pattern with blocks that are favorites of mine. Camille at Simplify pieced an amazing Leftovers block quilt last year that I absolutely loved. I had intended to create my own version of that quilt but once I saw the Moda pattern I decided to use their pattern, which has the same sort of feel as Camille's quilt, and thereby save me some time by not having to design my own. As a thank you to Camille for the inspiration I decided to add her world famous Swoon block.
I also enjoyed seeing all the alphabet quilts made this year which inspired me to add one letter block of my own.
And my all-time favorite block is the Goose in the Pond block, so I added one of those too.
I loved working on this project and I think you'll love it too. I have an extra Moda Modern Building Blocks pattern to share.
