Moda Modern Building Blocks Halfway Point

This is the halfway point for me.


Even though it's not obvious in the picture, I've been able to use nothing but polka-dot fabric for all the blocks.  Some of the smaller dot prints read as a solid, which is the only thing keeping this project from looking like a hot mess.  I don't think the dots slap you in the face, but then maybe that's just me, I do love my dots!

Not started your Moda Modern Building Blocks project yet,?  Primitive Gatherings is still offering patterns and three different BOM options here,  and the Fat Quarter Shop is offering the Bella Solid BOM version and the pattern here.

Don't miss out!

  2. Like your dots...I'm also using prints and solids and have 5 blocks done. Working on another project at the moment, but will get back to this shortly. The blocks are going together very nicely, can't hardly wait to get back to working on this one!

  10. I'm following your progress with great interest. I've ordered the pack from the Fat Quarter Shop but I won't get it until Dec or Jan (they are waiting for new stock, and I live in New Zealand). Although I've ordered the whole pack, I expect to substitute quite a lot of the solids with patterned fabrics. I love what you've done with the polka dots, so have started putting aside a few polka dot fabrics myself. I also intend to use any fabrics with small repeating patterns. I think this will be my major project for 2015.
