Moda

Next week, I should receive the instructions for the last Moda block.  Then I can put them all together and have a quilt.  The quilt is busy, colorful and not one that I would intentionally make.

IMG_2113Block # 50 is a 12″ block  It’s called Vintage and is designed by Sherri McConnell of a Quilting Life.

Quarter square triangles are easy to make with the Tucker Trimmer.  Making 16 took a while, mainly because even though I organized the blocks in the proper orientation, I twisted them when I sewed.  It led to a little un-sewing and re-sewing.

IMG_2112Block # 51 is a 6″ x 12″ block.  It is called Power Star and is designed by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings. This one took a really long time to make.  It had ninety six 1 1/4″ squares and a total of 141 very small pieces.  The little squares made twelve 2″ x 1 1/4″ flying geese and eighteen 2″ x 2″ square in a square units.  That’s a lot of little pieces for such a small block.

Before I receive the instructions for the last block  I can complete two more quarters of the quilt.  One quarter is already completed. I can also have the last quarter ready to insert block # 52.  I plan to piece large pieces of the Japanese fabric for the backing and can have that done.  The quilt will be ready to quilt in a few days.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
